Universe (Cosmos) and the way the brain works are one of the
subjects on which the scientists are working very hard.
there are various points of view among the scientists about
the structure of the Universe. They think that there is a
correlation between the human brain and the Universe, which
the brain is perceiving and interpreting. The scientists are
putting forth opinions about how the human brain is
the 1940’s various experiments were made on rats. The rats
were trained to run a maze. Afterwards some part of their
brain was surgically removed and their behaviour/reactions
were observed. The part that was removed was supposed to
contain the memory of their maze running ability. However,
in the end, it was found out that the rats had no trouble in
finding the route in the maze as they had learned before a
part of their brain was removed. There was no loss in their
memory. Similarly, a cat 98% of whose visual cortex (the
part of the brain that receives and interprets the image
that the eye sees) in the brain had been removed, was able
to see as if it had no operation.
results surprised the scientists. The neurophysiologist Karl
Pribram at Stanford University, thinking that the brain has
holographic qualities, intensified his research on this
subject. In the 1960’s, a text which he read on the
principles of hologram, was quite in parallel with his
ideas. According to Pribram, the brain was functioning in a
holographic form. As there was no vision in the brain, then
whose hologram was formed within it? What was the real
thing? Was it the world that is being seen, the wavelengths
perceived by the brain or something further apart from
according to our understanding of physics, the Universe is
formed of electromagnetic waves which are interconnected
(intercepting each other). With respect to this definition,
we may understand that in the space, every point is full.
There is no emptiness. The famous physician David Bohm, as a
result of his research on subatomic particles, reached the
conclusion that the Universe is a giant hologram. One of
Bohm’s most important findings is that in reality, our daily
life is an holographic image. According to him, the Universe
is an endless, limitless one "WHOLE" holographic structure.
It is meaningless to speak of parts.
think of what mystics have been telling, long before science
has made the above statements, we can clearly see that their
sayings were not so much different than the statements of
science. Furthermore, they were living in this state of
being (i.e. being fully aware of the hologramic principle).
While living with this awareness, some of them didn’t
declare anything about the truth they have attained, whereas
some tried to give explanations, in a manner suitable to the
level of understanding prevailing in the society at that
in the light of the scientific data, can have a better
understanding of what they meant.
Hologramic Principle enabled the people, though partially
to have a better understanding of what was told in sufism.
In general, the Hologram Principle explains how all the
qualities of the WHOLE exist dimensionally in every unit.
The understanding of this definition automatically destroys
the image of God further apart from us. Instead, this
definition of hologram brings to light the real concept of
this point, let us give a short explanation about hologram
and Sufism and try to find out the points where they meet.
say that Sufism is a philosophy which investigates one whole
being, one truth with all the dimensions. This philosophy is
based on contemplation. As a result of this
contemplation the points that have been determined are
being experienced/lived/practiced by the individual. It is
compulsory to know this philosophy, to be able to understand
the Koran and the hadithes and to be able to evaluate the
clues given by the Saints.
Hologram, can be defined mainly, "as a method of recording
the images in three dimensions". The most important quality
of the hologram technique is; instead of recording the image
of the objects, the information necessary to obtain an image
is recorded on the hologram plate. Therefore, even the
smallest particle in the hologram plate has the capacity to
store all the information belonging to the whole.
summarize this technique as follows: -
coming from a laser source is split into two beams by a semi
permeable mirror. One of these beams reaches directly the
hologram plate, whereas the other beam is directed to the
object which will be visualised. From there, by way of
reflection, it reaches the hologram plate. The two laser
beams; one coming directly to the hologram plate from the
source, the other reflecting from the object, create an
interference pattern on the plate. Thus, the image of the
object is recorded.
Afterwards, if the hologram plate is illuminated with a new
laser beam (which must have the same frequency with the beam
used in recording and illumination must be made from the
same angle), then the three dimensional image of the object
appears in the room. This image is very clear and nothing is
missing in comparison with the original. The reason is that
the hologram plate is reflecting the laser beams it has
received exactly in the same form as the object whose image
is being recorded.
the brain cells that are called neurones are like mini
holograms. They perceive the arriving impulses by
classifying them according to their frequencies. The
function of each neuron is creating a wavelength in itself.
As a result of the interference of wavelengths belonging to
a lot of cells, the holographic image that we can perceive
by our five senses is being formed.
think of the human brain as a big hologram, made up of lots
of mini holograms. Because, each cell in the brain has been
created with a capacity and ability to perform every
function. Only, after cosmic programming the cells become
specialized and perform their own functions.
the above explanatory information, and also in the light of
the religious data, let us think about how the human brain
basic, fixed program of the person called "Ayan-i Sabite"*
is formed on the hundred and twentieth day in the mother’s
womb by the arriving cosmic beams and the angelic
influences. Afterwards, during the seventh month and the
ninth month of pregnancy this programming goes on. At last,
at the time of birth, the brain receives a shower of cosmic
radiation and thus the programming of the brain is
completed. Originally, the Human being is a unit composed of
the meanings of Allah’s names... Through the genetic data,
these virtues, this perfection (the meanings of Allah’s
names) are transferred from one human being to the next,
from generation to generation. Therefore, in every human
being the ninety-nine names of Allah are present (Bakara,
The Cow 30-31). Also, the human being is a unit that has in
his own essence the four dimensions which are the
dimension of the Essence (Dhat), the dimesion of the
Qualities, the dimension of the Names and the dimension of
important quality of the hologram principle is:- Each point
in the hologram is able to give the image of the whole
object. Every point of the hologram receives and records the
light waves coming from all over the object. Therefore, if
the hologram plate is torn off or broken into pieces EVERY
SINGLE PARTICLE IS LOADED WITH THE INFORMATION OF THE WHOLE
AND WHEN NECESSARY CAN GIVE THE IMAGE OF THE WHOLE BY
with these data we can reach the following conclusions:- As
the laser beam reflected from an object records on the
hologram plate the image of that same object, in a similar
way, the brains of the human beings are programmed before
birth and at the time of birth by the cosmic rays coming
from infinite number of constellations, known as the
astrological signs whose origins are the angels. When you
send the laser beams of a similar frequency to the
holographic plate, the object appears in three dimensions.
Similarly, the cosmic rays (radiations), coming from the
Astrological Signs and the planets of the Solar system
influence the pre-programmed human brains. Thus, they make
every person, in the direction of his original, fixed
program, to manifest the activities, the behaviour
patterns, the ideas and the thoughts (which have been stated
in his/her original fixed program)
Actually, the object which is seen on the plate does not
have a real (tangible and concrete) existance. It’s a model
(or an image) made up of wavelengths which we see as if it’s
existing. Similarly, at this point the human brain is
working just the same as a hologram and because of the
limited capacity of our five senses we accept ourselves as a
unit and think that everything that we see around us really
exists. In fact, as the image on the hologram plate is not
real, the things that we see around us and accept as
existing do not have any existance too. The actions that we
perceive are all meanings. To emphasize this concept the
mystics have said "Thinking about the origin of the objects
is tawhid (oneness/unity)". Also, every meaning is a
wavelength of a certain frequency... As a result, the brain
is perceiving the universe holographically.
from this point, just the same as the brain cells, the
Universe at the macro level is a hologramic structure whose
source/origin is quantum energy. For a moment, think of the
universe in absolute sense as a hologram plate. Allah, the
infinite, eternal limitless One wished to observe the
meanings that he had, and by making compositions of these
meanings in various forms, the One created the infinite
number of beings. However, all of these beings (units) are
images of consciousness (knowledgeable forms) created by the
only One from nothing, with His knowledge/science and in His
knowledge. All of these units that Allah has created from
nonexistance; because they are created with Allah’s
knowledge, from Allah’s knowledge and from Allah’s
existance don’t have anything else existing in them apart
from Alalh’s existance.
told in terms of Sufism, the universe is made of One SPIRIT
and everything existing in the UNIVERSE receives its
vitality from this Spirit. At the same time this Spirit,
because it is a concious structure, has knowledge
(conciousness), science, will and power. Thus Universal
Knowledge (Cosmic Conciousness), Power and Will is present
in a holographic form, in every particle of every unit, at
all levels of the Universe. Those, who have attained this
truth tried to explain it by saying ""The smallest particle
is the mirror of the whole." However, this way of
explanation was misunderstood and it was thought that as if
together with the Absolute Will there existed the
individual’s will also.
molecule of your body, that Cosmic Power, Knowledge and Will
is present with its original structure. And when you wish
something, you are not requesting something from a being
that is far beyond, but from the one in your existance, in
your Essence. In other words the Science of Allah, present
in your essence is bringing out into the open your wish,
upon Allah’s Will and by Allah’s Power...
important quality of the holographic structure is that; it
contains altogether everything we know as the past, the
present and the future without the concepts of time and
place. In other words it contains all the information. The
concepts perceived as "time", "place", "past" and "present"
are all relative concepts depending upon the perceptive
capacity of the perceiver. Once again, the holographic
principle has intensified these statements. The information
of the Whole is present in the essence of every particle,
but the particle can evaluate this WHOLE information, only
to the extent that he can
bring this capacity out into the open or to the
extent that he can utilize this capacity.
Mahfuz, Allah's preordained will is the dimension in which
Allah's decrees on "accident,fate and command’’ destiny"
regarding the compositions of Allah's names that form the
universe of multiplicity, take place together with the
knowledge and consciousness.
the reflection of the "command and the will" present in
Allah’s science to the world of actions/multiplicity.
platform every, single thing is present as knowledge, design
and with all its reasons of existance. In this platform,
which is free from the concepts of time and place everything
is present as information from the past to the future
eternity. Thus, Levh-i Mahfuz is the mirror of the universes
and it is considered to be the gene of the universe.
beings created in the Universe and within all the
dimensional levels of the Universe are made up of the
detailed expansion/description of the immediate upper
dimension known as Levh-i Mahfuz - Allah’s preordained will.
Every unit present in this dimension, namely the galaxies,
astrological signs (constellations), the sun, the planets
and everything on earth receives its being from Allah.
And Each of the units are regarded as existing according to
the perceiver in its dimension. In reality what is existing
is the ONE and the ONLY ONE, ALLAH, who is vahid-ül ahad
(there is nothing existing apart form ALLAH).
these meanings present in the Universe in the form of images
have all the characteristics of the ONE. They are not
separate beings and they are not existing separately.ALLAH
is existing in every particle with Allah’s Essence,Qualities
and Names; and due to this fact of "UNITY - ONENESS", the
Universe has a holographic quality. The Islamic Saints, who
have figured out this point, mentioned the truth by saying
"The origin of all the Universes is imaginary".
