THERE IS NO “OUT THERE” OUT THERE
Dr. Karl Pribram has had a long and illustrious career. Born in Austria in 1919,
Pribram is both a neurosurgeon and a neurophysiologist who spent many years trying to
find out where memories are stored in the brain.
The problem was that in the 1920’s a brain scientist by the name of Karl Lashley had
found “no matter what portion of a rat’s brain he removed, he was unable to eradicate its
set out to solve the mystery of memory storage that seemed independent of brain cells
But it wasn’t until he met David Bohm, one of the pioneers in quantum physics, that
Pribram found his answer. “Bohm helped establish the foundation for Pribram’s theory
that the brain operates in a manner similar to a hologram, in accordance with quantum
Technically, “Pribram believes memories are encoded not in neurons, or small
groupings of neurons, but in patterns of nerve impulses that crisscross the entire brain in
the same way that patterns of laser light interference crisscross the entire area of a piece
of film containing a holographic image. In other words, Pribram believes the brain is
Memory storage is not the only thing that becomes more understandable in light of
“Another is how the brain is able to translate the avalanche of frequencies it receives
via the senses (light frequencies, sound frequencies, etc.) into the concrete world of our
perceptions. Encoding and decoding frequencies is precisely what a hologram does best.
Just as a hologram functions as a sort of lens, a translating device able to convert an
apparently meaningless blur of frequencies into a coherent image, Pribram believes the
brain also comprises a lens and uses holographic principles to mathematically convert
In short, Pribram believes “our brains mathematically construct „hard’ reality by
Okay. Let’s translate all of this into simple English. According to Karl Pribram and
the results of many scientific experiments, the human brain itself is a hologram. Its
function is to receive holographic wave frequencies and translate them into the physical
universe we see “out there.”
And now the fun begins….
I want to talk about two specific scientific experiments – out of many – that not only
seem to prove Pribram’s theory, but go beyond it to an amazing conclusion.
The first began in the 1970’s with a researcher in the physiology department of the
University of California, San Francisco, Dr. Benjamin Libet. Put very simply, Libet
