About the book, The Holographic Universe:

Mentioned--after the quote below--in this book is the work of the great physicist, David Bohm. I once heard him lecture at the Univeristy of Toronto, Canada.
The Holographic Universe begins by noting the inadequate model of the mind we are left with by cognitive scientists. In keeping with a philosophical materialism, psychologists have affirmed the essential physical nature of mind: thought occurs within the mind, and no thought occurs after the body is dead.

Talbot however cites various studies that cast suspicion on that model. For example, Paul Pietsch did various studies with salamanders, wherein he sliced and diced their brains, scrambled and replaced them, only to find that they still retained their memories. In another study, laboratory rats had large portions of their brains removed, but still retained their knowledge of mazes.

Similarly, people who have lost large portions of their brains still retain their memories. Psychologist Karl Pribam later formulated his theory that memories are distributed, not stored in a particular location throughout the brain.

The discovery of the hologram suggested a model for the brainís apparent non-localized memory storage. Any slice of a hologram contains the entire image, albeit in miniature.
Is this this true? Or is this just more junk science?

If it is true, this points to the theory, or idea, as to how GOD can thought of as being everywhere, and in us (as G0d) and all that exists, at the same time.
