Why am I here?
Where is here?
These are the fundamental questions mankind has asked since the moment we came into existence.
Many explanations to these questions have been offered over the years, usually by religion or science. In Western society the explanations offered by these two groups usually contradict each other and as a result, many people continue to pursue these fundamental questions.
In many cases spirituality has been divorced from science and organized religion with disastrous consequences. For centuries Western religions have sought to suppress both science and spirituality. This applies particularly to the spirituality of indigenous and ancient cultures. This agenda has been made clear; from the burning of the library in Alexandria to the continuing slaughter of the native peoples and the destruction of indigenous cultures around the world. Mainstream science on the other hand, after emerging from centuries of repression, seemingly seeks to denounce religion and along with it spirituality. Scientists began stating the human condition is one of biomechanics alone. This renouncing of spirituality and the ethics by science has led to a quagmire of degradation. This is a result of scientists asking "is it possible?" as opposed to "is it morally and ethically just?" For instance, it is possible to split atoms, but it is not morally and ethically just.
It is only when one unifies the concepts of science and spirituality that one begins to see the real nature of the universe. Reality is comparable to the concept of holographic illusions; this is very similar to what the ancient and indigenous cultures have been describing for millennia.
Holograms are photons projected through an interference pattern to create a seemingly three dimensional object. Perhaps many of you are saying to yourself "OK... but a hologram has no physical substance and the world around me does." Perhaps you are thinking "Hell! I can see, taste, smell, hear and touch it so the world must be real." How can the universe be an illusion similar to a hologram? What do holograms have to do with ancient and indigenous wisdom?
Let's start by examining one such ancient idea, a hermetic teaching ascribed to Hermes Trismegistus, "as above so below." This describes perfectly the fractal and holographic nature of not only the universe but the human body as well. Each cell contains all of the DNA information necessary to create an identical copy of the whole organism. The same can be said for fractals and holograms, in each part the whole is contained. Break a holographic image in half and you do not get half of the image, you get a smaller version of the whole. Much research has been and is being done by Nassim Haramein and others regarding the fractal nature of the universe and the scaling laws to which it conforms. The universe including all life forms sentient or non-sentient and non living substances conform to the fractal nature of reality. Changes in any level of the system effects the structure of the whole.
