Introduction

Updated 10/3/19
The idea of a holographic universe (or holomovement) as proposed by David Bohm  and supported by others (Talbot 1991), (t Hooft 2000), (Suskind 1995), (Bekenstein 2003), (Sutter 2018), (Afshordi, et al. 2017) is gaining ground with recent observational tests of holographic cosmology (Afshordi, et al. 2017). To me, this is a pretty exciting concept because it seems to provide a sensible, meaningful way of bridging science and spirituality. The old saying, “I am a spiritual Being having a human experience” makes a lot of sense, even from a scientific perspective, if the human body is a holographic projection. But there is still a problem… or rather a couple of problems. 
The “holographic principle” was inspired by black hole thermodynamics and is interpreted to mean that the holographic surface is either on the surface of a gigantic black hole or the outer surface of the universe. (Suskind 1995) But if that’s the case, how did it get there and how does it get projected?
If physical reality is a hologram (i.e. a physical object is a holographic projection) then: 
1) Where or what is the holographic plate? Projecting a holographic image requires some kind of surface that  has “fringes”, which store the interference patterns produced by two coherent lasers when the “print” was made.  (I submit that there is no plate, but rather, that every quantum particle is itself an embodiment of spacetime duality and plays the pole of a fringe.  “Process philosophy” offers a better approach to understanding the phenomena. I call it the “Holomorphic Process”)
2) Why is physical matter solid rather than ethereal? – (I have shown that the process approach correlates with the quantum model as well as classical electromagnetic theory and attributes the vector curl to the formation of solid boundaries.)
3) What process (not “who”) made the holographic plate and how is it used to project the image? – (I call it holomorphosis – a contraction of holotropic metamorphosis – and demonstrate that relative motion provides what is needed to perceive the energy as “projected” and make the process ubiquitous.)
4) How can the holomorphic process help to understand the physics behind mind-body relationship? (The holomorphic process {separation-projection-reflection-reunification} simultaneously transforms undifferentiated energy into pairs of opposites that morph into the quantum particles, AND transforms the same opposites into the non-physical projector-reflector pair that we perceive as the “knowing self” and “thinking self”.)

If my approach is correct, I think that it will answer some of the most important questions in physics (and religion) for those who dare to ask. It will provide an intelligent, rational perspective of the process and a visual model for understanding how we evolve from formless energy into virtual beings of awareness. The reward for me will be that society will realize that life is the eternal process of transformation and every person is a part of the process that leads to the collective metamorphosis, which I call “Hologenesis”.

The theory strongly suggests that the DNA-bodies are just the holders of the information (as quantum bits) and that the information transfers to new bodies as necessary to evolve. Hopefully, it will be a catalyst for experimental research on the holographic nature of DNA molecules that will lead to a method of back-projecting information stored in DNA. The idea is to use the information to reconstruct and display images of actual events, i.e. a holographic display (like a 3-D computed tomographic (CT) image in virtual reality) of events that actually happened in the 3-D space surrounding an individual.

Can you imagine an App for that? Just touch the device and it reads your DNA. Then select the time frames you want to see and it projects a 3-D image of your teacher giving the lecture you want to review or anything else that you want to “re-live”. You could even turn the image and see what was behind you, even if you didn’t look at it with your eyes because the information was “collapsed” and “absorbed” by every DNA molecule in your body. Imagine how helpful that would be for ensuring criminal justice. I suspect that this application (a fool-proof tool to reveal truth) may be the reason the holomorphic process, which has already been recognized and presented in the form of mythological journey toward enlightenment, has not been “discovered” before.

But the real reward will be that society as a whole will know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Truth is all there is and that everything we say, do, and experience is stored in our DNA. We are all mothers in the sense that we will eventually give birth to a living “spirit”. We will understand that the masculine characteristic (in us all) is only the phallic projection that serves the feminine womb (the circular, cyclic process). Everything is part of truth, which is the essence of the life process, but everything that is not in tune with truth (i.e. tell a lie, believe a lie, or kill another living being to support your own agenda or just for the sake of killing) also collapses into qbits of information. Those bits are carriers of death, what we might call genetic defects. Ironically, a “down ladder” looks the same as an “up ladder” so it mimics the process and offers an easier way to go. Those who choose that route are what has been dubbed “the living dead” in mythology. Tragically, because they realize that they are falling away from the light of awareness, they tend to grab for those who are on the “upward” path of life.

I know and accept that the body I am in right now, along with all of the genetic defects that I have created, will die. The holomorphic process tells me that, unless I reach the level of awareness that allows me to wake up transfigured in spirit form, I will have to continue the process in some other body, perhaps on Earth and perhaps in a body that I will share with others who are at a similar level of awareness. I already feel like I am tune with others who lived and died before I was born. They are the ones who I thank for giving me insight and a mission. They are part of the collective consciousness, in tune with the life process (in a word – “God”). So I desperately want to come back in a healthy body that is the child of loving, honest parents. I want that future society to understand and live by principles centered on truth. Fortunately, there are subsections of society, led by artists and not politicians, dogmatic religions or even scientists, that are already there. I know that there are many, for example the Unity Worldwide Ministry. But this website is not for advertising or endorsing one organization. It is for explaining my approach to understanding unity through physics and philosophy.

Keep in mind that it is not a finished product. I have been consciously working on it since 1992, when I had a profound, transformational, out-of-body type experience that flipped my world inside out. But that just sent me back to school to get my masters degree in physics, which led me to reactivate my commission in the US Navy, which led me back to graduate school for my Ph. D. in Medical Physics and my MA in Social Science (National security and strategic studies). It also gave me experience in personnel management and leadership as well as clinical experience as a healthcare provider in radiation oncology. Finally, as I approached my retirement (in 2014) I began to have more awakening experiences that were not as earth-shattering as before, but they were new insights that are paradigm shattering. That is when I started trying to spell them out and publish them in terms of physics and philosophy.

Briefly, here’s my approach:

The word “hologram” refers to the imprint of spatial gratings on a film, not the image itself. The gratings are produced by the interference patterns of a laser beam separated into two coherent beams, a signal beam, projected onto an object from outside of the object (and reflected onto the film) and a reference beam, projected directly onto the holographic film. The interference patterns between the two beams are recorded as gratings or fringes on the film. In order to form a holographic image, a reconstruction beam must illuminate the film and be reflected off of the gratings to form a similar pair of beams to those that formed the gratings. These reflections then become reintegrated in space, forming local “constructive” and “destructive” interference patterns at every point in space thereby reforming the original patterns as they  reflected off of the object.

This is a fairly involved process. So the idea that the universe is a “holographic image” from a hologram written on the surface of a black hole somewhere out in space or on the surface of the expanding universe seems ridiculous. In fact, some people (namely Jim Baggott in his book “Farewell to Reality, How Modern Physics Has Betrayed the Search for Scientific Truth” (Baggott 2013)) consider it “fairy tale physics” or a new version of the “creation hypothesis” that comes with unanswerable questions. Where did the information come from? Who or what set up the objects, recorded the images and continuously performs the process of projecting the images in real time?

The answer, discussed philosophically in this paper with just a little bit of math, and proposed in terms of physics here, is that the holographic nature of reality is possible because the spatial gratings are not on the surface of a black hole out in space but rather they are spatial frequencies that are transformed into local gratings by relative motion. In essence, “energy” – our regular 3-D space – is both the holographic media and the holographic image. Rather than being created in an instant of time (in the “beginning” or “big bang”) or written on a black hole or anything else “out there”, the process happens at every point in the universe – the field of motion (energy) that appears to be separated into space and time.  In reality, it is not separated so the process forms Plank-scale holographic fringes in space and the “fringes” are quantum bit points.  The infinitesimal sphere (represented as a circle projected in the space-time diagram) surrounding these points, called the “event reference” defining “here” and “now”, forms the patterns of energy in space for the holographic image itself.

Here’s how…

Relative motion is a form of energy, a unitary concept, and it is ubiquitous. And we understand that energy is conserved (it can neither be created nor destroyed, but only changed in form). Physical matter is one form of energy and motion is another. The transformation, or morphing, of motion into matter is the same process described above that makes the hologram:

1) separation, 2) projection, 3) reflection, and 4) reunification.
Basic process
The cycle represents the process, which only requires two dimensions to hold and display it meaning. But the result or “product”  of the process requires a third dimension because it “transcends” the two, individual components. This is analogous to a 2-D radiographic image “contains information” about the anatomy in the form of optical density. A CT scanner has to take at least two images from different perspectives and apply mathematical transform functions, like Fourier transforms, in order to “reconstruct” anatomical position information.
sphere projection
The mind does the same thing when energy is perceived in the form of vibrations (which are 2-D: space vs time). It back-projects the information into individual events (qbits) in every cell of the body. The collection of events form a memory bank and serves as the transform functions necessary to make sense out of new vibrations. In a CT machine, the transform-functions had to be discovered by mathematicians and entered by programmers. But the mind is part of the process itself, which in its very essence is a harmonic, auto-feedback oscillator. So it is its own feedback system.
This is in agreement with the doctrine of psychophysical parallelism, which means that “the chains of physical and of mental events run side by side, in some way corresponding to each other, but without mutual interference.” (von Bertalanffy, 1964)
The first step is separating motion into two apparently different yet coherent forms as space and time. A major complicating factor in the current consensus model of physics stems from the way that the “spacetime continuum” is framed as a 4-dimensional tensor. The framework is based on the difference between space and time but then space is treated as 3-D and time as 1-D. Mathematically there is nothing wrong with that. But it is not necessary, it assumes that time is, in fact, an independent and very different kind of phenomenon, and it forces interpretations of reality that are warped, pinched, twisted and folded (like a long skinny balloon that clowns used to make figures).
In this work, I use the space-time-motion diagram, i.e. just space versus time with motion as the the third, tangent dimension to space and time. Motion is “the real thing,” the form of energy that is conformally projected onto the space-time plane. Space and time are just two different ways of scaling motion, time being the denominator that we normally use as an “independent variable” that quantizes motion, and space the “dependent variable.” In my approach, I use space and time as unitless quantities so that the speed of light is also unitless. This is not new, in fact, in Quantum Field Theory,
“it is customary to choose units so that c=1 and h(bar)=1. We can always do this because the definition [of these constants] depends on certain conventions that grew historically in our understanding of nature. Imposing c=1 for example, means that seconds and centimeters are treated on the same footing, such that 299,792,458 meters is equivalent to 1 second. Thus the second and the centimeter are treated as if they are expressions of the same unit.” (Kaku 1993) 
My approach is exactly that, treating space and time as if they are expressions of the same unit, i.e energy. With that, I approach the concept of spacetime a little differently as well.
We perceive a unit of mass as being constant (in size) so a common way to visualize curved spacetime is to imagine a sphere sitting on a 2-D “fabric of spacetime” that curves continuously “down” toward mass like a funnel. So gravity is seen as the effect of mass “falling” down into the “funnel”. My approach provides the same result (gravity) but I use a different reference and come up with a bitwise process rather than a continuous curve. I use the two forms of quantum energy expressed as a phasor (phase vector) pair in terms of temporal frequency (E=hf) and spatial frequency (E=hc/λ). By superimposing the quantum phasors (scaled as the inverse domain, i.e. 1/space and 1/time) on a relativistic space-time background, I illustrate how the two perspectives (phasor and vector) diverge with motion, causing one phasor to rotate to the left and one to the right, and the relativistic vector to extend outward as a conformal projection, appearing to be magnified by the Lorentz factor. Since relative motion is ubiquitous, the phasors become misaligned with the vector (their slopes) and the misalignment of represents a phase difference between the two perspectives of the same energy, giving rise to the curvature of space. But then, because time is treated as a measure of motion, the reference point on the time axis (the infinitesimal circle at the origin of the plot) also expands and the base of the vector moves to the right on the time axis (forward in time).
At a critical point, the slope of the vector and the slope of the phasor are equal (which happens to be equal to the Golden Ratio), so to an observer, the two look identical to each other but slightly rotated with respect to the original. Rotating the reference frame to line the vector back up with the diagonal (where the speed of light is constant) results in what appears as spin. The same process happens simultaneously with the other phasor, rotating to the right. The reference point on the space axis (the infinitesimal circle at the origin of the plot) also expands and the base of the vector moves up on the space axis (outward in space).
In effect, the fabric of spacetime expanded slightly and then collapsed, pulling the surrounding field (3-D fabric of spacetime) toward the center of the quantum particle. When you look at it like this, every quantum particle is the same as a black hole with a Planck-sized event horizon. Any disturbance in the surrounding field is also pulled toward the center with every event. The event horizon then serves as the boundary between past and future – the inner and outer domains – so any disturbance in the surrounding field Fourier-transforms into bits of information and is effectively stored in “inner space” – the quantum domain, as a reflection of “outer space” and as the gratings required for the formation of a holographic image.
