Decades ago, I visited the Museum of Holography in New York City (closed since 1992) that showed life-size 3D images of people. I was completely unprepared for the impact this had on me. As I walked by a life-size image of a man riding a bicycle, and a woman blowing me a kiss, I realized that each of us is a hologram and that what we imagine to be our real world is a hologram too. This knowing was not theoretical; it was a door opening into another reality—somewhat like what must have happened to individuals 500 years ago when they realized that the Sun, not the Earth, was/is the center of the solar system.

When a leap like this occurs, you cannot go back to your earlier beliefs and I have been interested in watching scientific investigations into consciousness since then to see if, and when, it would make a similar leap.

I discovered that quantum physicist David Bohm and neurophysiologist Karl Pribram began speaking of the holographic nature of the universe and of our brain about the same time as I had my knowing, and we all came at it from our different areas of expertise. Is this a coincidence? I think not. The nature of the collective unconscious is that when one person discovers something they create a thoughtform for others, who are interested, to follow. These thoughtforms become stronger the more individuals think similar thoughts and each major thoughtform has various notes/tones depending on the filter that the perceiving individual prefers. If you have a science filter, you will likely approach through a lens like quantum physics, mathematics, astronomy, or neurophysiology. If you have a spiritual bias, you might meditate, study with an enlightened master, or read spiritual books.

Science is wonderful in the strides it has made in the last 50 years, however many scientific theories still conform to an egoized model with humans at the center evolving consciousness in a predictable grid pattern familiar to computers. Today, March 2018, I was listening to a NASA astronomer, Rich Terrile, speak in support of the ‘simulation hypothesis’ that our creator is a cosmic computer programmer and we are the program he is running, something like we see in the film the Matrix. He thinks it likely that humans and our real world is a simulation and that humanity will soon be able to create similar 3D simulations. In this way, we become gods of a simulated world in future and that it is only a question of time before we know the science to do this.

I agree with Dr. Terrile that our 3D ‘real’ world is a simulation, or as the Indian Vedas 4000 years ago put it, ‘we are a dream being dreamt by God’. However, his vision of our future is based on an erroneous premise, that not only our third dimension, but that all dimensions in our universe conform to the same scientific laws that he perceives currently with his 3D sight. Professor Peter Millican, who teaches philosophy and computer science at Oxford University, thinks the Matrix theory is flawed. He says in an article in MessageToEagle.com, “The theory seems to be based on the assumption that ‘superminds’ would do things in much the same way as we would do them.”

I agree with Millican and feel comfortable with theoretical physicist and mathematician Dr. Sylvester James Gates Jr. from the University of Maryland, who says that the simulation hypothesis takes us out of the realm of the natural universe and is based on the same structure as classical religions of the Greeks and Romans, whereas gods are physical like us… only more developed. Gates, as it turns out, unlike Terrile, does not have a conflict between his belief in science and his spiritual faith and can see that both are true and essential for the survival of our species.

My intuition is that both science and spirituality have part of the answer. Scientists, such as Terrile, put Man in the center, which is ego-driven with divine intelligence being the ultimate scientist. Religion can also be in error, and equally ego-driven, if it believes that divine intelligence is different than us and that we will always be children hoping for, God, as a good parent, to save us from this sad reality we call our world. I embrace a both/and view, which is that we are evolving into creator gods, but this is beyond our ego’s vision and can only be experienced with a fundamental shift in consciousness that is not found in the 3D reality. It is outside space and time: so how can we from inside our ego, which is a construct, see this?

You might ask, “If our ego is a construct, a simulation, what about our soul? Is it not eternal?” The soul is a construct too, but in the higher frequency of our mental/causal body. There will come a time in our evolution when even our soul dissolves leaving only divine intelligence, which permeates everything.

Although I may sound critical of science, I am relieved that science has discovered that our universe is a hologram and that we, being unreal, are simulations in it. We are moving beyond our conceptions of what is possible and breakthroughs are happening almost daily in all scientific fields and new fields, such as epigenetics, synthetic biology, nutritional genomics, quantum biology, and exo-meteorology (studying natural processes on other planets) are being created. It would be nice to think that I will still be living as a 3D simulation on Earth when this science’s next leap in consciousness occurs. But, if I’m not, I may be back in another simulated body doing what I can in the 3D existence.


Thank you to Victoria Beaumont in our Diamond Heart retreat for gifting us with a painting of Gordon the goblin.

Do you have an image of a leprechaun, gnome or another elemental? Send it in to info(at)iitransform.com, or post it on Instagram using the hashtag #tanisleprechaun (remember to make it public) and we'll share it in our next IIT newsletter!

For more photos, see my friend Lloyd's "The Leprechaun site" here.

I'm looking forward to seeing your photos.
