He does not suggest they are real, he just provides an alternative explaination on why they may occur.
That was always a risk citing someone from rural pre-20th century India. But the other sources he uses are hard to discredit.
Like I said, its intended for people with an open mind. You are not required to take everything onboard as some of the stuff is quite mindblowing. But it will no doubt open your mind up that bit more about the universe we live in.
As for the other case studies, they may or may not have been explained away. Until you read the book, you will have to make up your own mind as to whether you believe them or not.
...theories of the universe as a hologram.
...but it is interesting to hear the author's views on why they occur through holographic principles.
Perhaps but there is just no point in explaining what has never been shown to exist, by doing so he has probably conveyed the wrong message and alienated people. Plus, if a theory can explain why non-existent phenomena work, does that not suggest that the theory is in fact wrong?
I find the notion just a little problematic as a hologram is an artificial construct that we developed only relatively recently, it does not exist in nature
Neither do strings occur in nature, but we still term the theory, "String Theory". When dealing with abstract theories, I guess we can only compare to what we know, so if the theory fits like a hologram, then the word, "hologram" will suffice for now.
But do not all paranormal events have explanations anyway?
What is the harm in the author having his own explanations amongst the many others that account for UFO's, ghosts, etc.?
By explaining something away, the skeptics and scientists are still accounting for the fact that something has occured even though they may not believe it.
Shadowolf, I'd love you to read this book.
What has it got to do with religious themes such as scriptures and deity? Don't introduce God into the argument as a believer versus a non-believer debate when I am not suggesting anything religious.
I am an atheist who believes in the Hologram theory... Arguments for God are far-fetched and unsound, whereas arguments for the Hologram theory are at least plausible. Do not compare the two arguments.
