2. Featured UFO Story — The Holographic Universe

The following is an excerpt from the book To Earth From Heaven by John Foster. It is an attempt to explain in a little more detail how UFO encounters can actually happen to at least some individuals. It also can possibly give you some insight into what our Earthy reality is beyond and including the hidden nature of our basic five human senses. (The To Earth From Heaven manuscript was initially written sometime around the summer of 1998. Some writings originated as early as 1986.)

Chapter 13 The Holographic

How is it that paranormal events can actually happen? They seem to defy science. And we are told, especially by some modern day scientists, that science is the only true measure of reality. It even seems that many scientists believe paranormal events are figments of our imaginations. Yet, those of us who experience profound paranormal encounters know they’re not in the least what we commonly term imagination. Many UFO encounters have multiple witnesses and images of UFOs have been captured on hundreds of photographs, movie film and video tape.

The multiple witnesses and visual recordings suggest that UFOs, although rarely seen, are a substantial part of our reality. And further, as suggested in the previous chapters, when contemplating the meaning of UFO experiences, one cannot escape the possibility that ordinary life is not what it seems to be, especially under the authoritative realm of current scientific reality. Also, when comparing UFO encounters with spiritual phenomenon, psychic phenomenon and other paranormal phenomenon, there seems to be a connection. Ghosts appearing in a mysterious translucent plasma, for instance, is very similar to the craft I witnessed appearing from a mysterious clear distorted atmosphere, a light haze or dense fog. And the appearance of angels seems similar to the appearance of ETs in some cases. Even some of the messages people receive from various paranormal entities, including ETs, are similar.

All of this has led some paranormal experiencers, spiritual investigators, and UFO investigators to conclude that the various types of entities might manifest from a common source. This source seems to be from a world beyond our own. However, concepts like the holographic universe hypothesis suggest our world is not in the least separated from this immensely complex intelligent world we normally don’t see with our naked eyes. The holographic universe concept indicates our so-called physical world is nothing more than a small integral part of an eternal, infinite world we don’t yet understand.

Several modern authors, such as Michael Talbot in his book, “The Holographic Universe,” present intriguing arguments about how we are all united in a realm of nonlocality. Talbot proposes that we see mere images of things that might be immediately before us, but there’s a good possibility some or all of these things are no more near us than they are an infinite distance away. And the reality of what we see is most probably only the tip or ghostly image of its true total reality.

Another way to put it is this: Time and space do not exist as we understand them. Therefore, what we see and experience in the realm of time and space does not exist totally in the form we perceive with our physical senses.

While the holographic reality hypothesis is difficult for some of us to understand, it can be demonstrated somewhat simply in a laboratory when the light of a laser is spit into two beams. As Talbot illustrates in his book, the light is bounced off of an object, such as an apple. The image of the apple is then reflected off of mirrors, one passing through a defusing lens and the other to a film. As the light of the two beams intersect on the single film, a concentric ring, wave interference pattern is recorded on the film, like the pattern of the several circular waves on the surface of a lake after several pebbles are thrown into the water. The visual image of the apple is not recorded on the film, only the wave interference pattern is recorded. Then, after the film is developed, the laser can be projected through the complex wave patterns on the film and a three dimensional image of the apple appears in mid air, well beyond the other side of the film. What’s astounding is that the light can be passed through any part of the film, small or large, and the apple image appears on the other side in mid air.

This illustrates, in two ways, the concept of nonlocality. The wave pattern code of the apple is present in all places on the film and the three dimensional visual image of the apple is in mid air, suggesting the original apple, at least visually, is located in two distinct places. The three dimensional apple image appears at different places in mid air depending on where the light of the laser is directed on the film. However, it normally takes some kind of medium such as smoke filled air (or plasma, or haze, or fog) in order to gain a clear image.

What makes this holographic projection more difficult to understand is that we think we know matter is nothing more than pure energy in the form of subatomic waves and particles. This suggests that our perception of the original apple, itself, is nothing more than a three dimensional visual image of energy, the true total nature of which we don’t see or understand.
Michael Talbot asks the question: As far as we are concerned, which image is real, the direct visual image of the original apple energy, the wave pattern representing the apple on the film, or the image of the apple suspended in mid air? Considering the fact that our personal reality is based on what we perceive, one could consider any one of these, or all of them the real apple.

Because we think we know matter is at least pure energy, this all suggests that physical phenomenon of all types, even beyond the visual, might be mere experiential images of a more complex reality. We possibly see and feel other things in our normal lives that are mere visual and experiential images of the mother things that might be located in another place, possibly beyond time and space. It’s important to note that even physical things with hardness might be mere images; it’s only our physical senses that lead us to believe a solid object is hard matter rather than a simple manifestation of pure energy. Because of the plasma seen before, during and after ghost appearances and because of the distorted atmosphere, haze and fog that I saw during my experiences, it is possible that what appear to be solid paranormal beings and craft are mere projections of living entities that reside in another place, possibly great distances away in space, or in time, or beyond time and space.

Yet, the holographic universe concept doesn’t necessarily tell us who is projecting the image into our time and location. On the other hand, it seems, techniques like remote viewing, where one allegedly can function out of his or her body, possibly can be used as a means to identify the intelligent source of any paranormal manifestation.

The technique of remote viewing across vast distances, in the present, into the past, and into the future has just recently hit the American scene. This is like mind travel through time and space. A few books have been published telling of remote viewing programs established in the military for the purpose of espionage. The techniques being used seem to be extremely accurate. Several books could possibly be written about remote viewing as it relates to UFO experiences and the holographic universe, but it is not my intention here to go into great detail. The important thing is to realize this technique can possibly give us the means to enter the realms of the holographic universe through our own wills, at least while our metal perceptions are out of our physical bodies. But the technique seems to be dangerous if one doesn’t have the proper knowledge and a qualified conscious controller who can guide the remote viewer’s travels through what seem to be infinite mazes of realities that exist in the past, in the present, in the future, and beyond time and space. If we don’t have the proper knowledge and controller to guide our way, it appears we could get lost in the complex reality mazes, or in an infinite pool of timeless illusion.

Yet, the holographic reality hypothesis suggests we can receive any knowledge or experience anything that is real in the universe, while we are in or out of our bodies. It suggests that everything imaginable is real. If this is actually the case, we can expand our present reality in many, if not all directions. In the ultimate sense, it suggests that everything is one and one is everything. Only our limited perception separates us from the whole of the infinite, eternal, multidimensional universe — from the whole of all that is. It suggests intelligent motivation is the only ultimate question: To be or not to be. In the ultimate sense, it suggests that if I chose to be, if I can develop my so-called spiritual talents, I can be a tree, or a rock, or a bug. I can be God. I can be you and you can be me, or we both can be a tree. Or I can be all of these. I can physically disappear or you can disappear into another dimension. All we have to do is know how to tap the holographic living film of eternal knowledge and experience through our inherent higher-than-physical senses.

In the ultimate sense, the holographic universe concept is mind boggling, yet it is compatible with most paranormal phenomenon, UFO experiences, and religions. It supports historical biblical accounts of miracles, life after death and Heaven. It explains all kinds of mysteries connected to UFO experiences, including my time travels. To me it is the singular, most exciting meaning suggested by UFO experiences. The personal experiential possibilities seem to be limitless.

Yet, we, as humans, all eventually seem to have to live our more normal, practical lives whether we like it or not — i.e. if we wish to stay physically alive. In other words, it ultimately seems as if we are not totally in control of our own personal destinies, because, it seems, we are only presented what we are presented in our individual lives, and we can do little about it. We can progress, but only if we receive a stimulus that motivates us toward progress. Any outside stimulus most often points us toward a certain direction of growth. Because of our so- called physical bodies and ignorance, we can only freely function within restricted limits that may or may not be orchestrated or defined by powers beyond our control. And this might not be bad at all.

If we consider that life is a process of discovery and growth (and it surely is from birth to death), the only way I know how to grow is within restricted limits, self imposed or otherwise. If I want to grow in the knowledge of mathematics, for instance, the only way I can grow, even at this time in my late life, is to concentrate on mathematics, shunning everything else, except the singular mathematical concept I’m trying to understand. This, although mental, is somewhat experiential because I have spent the illusion of time trying to understand; I have not only grasped the mathematical concept mentally, but I’ve felt the concept in my mind through my emotional body, or visa versa. If I can apply the mathematical concept to living experience, I have learned my lesson to an even greater degree. Because I placed myself in an isolated mental box, I have experienced; I ultimately have become more than who I was.

And so it is with UFO experiences, as well as any knowledge or experience one might receive as a gift from a holographic, nonlocal universe. UFO experiences most often seem to be forced on us from a power beyond. Yet, according to some UFO experiencers, the experiencers themselves have called the UFOs in through their own wills. Even though it might seem they have received the gift of appearance through their own request, they still must put themselves in a sort of UFO frame of mind, a mental box, before, during and after the encounter, in order to fully experience and understand it. The question is: Who or what puts them in that frame of mind. Furthermore, in most of these cases, it is the UFO intelligences who, in the end, orchestrate the encounter.

Similarly, if one has a question and mentally puts forth a request out into the vast multi-dimensional holographic universe and receives an answer, he/she still must experience the answer mentally and emotionally in a box, or the information becomes nothing but irrational emotion. Yet, the irrational emotion can become a stimulus for learning at a later date through recollection.

Because there seems to be a holographic character to our universe, and because we know our nervous systems and brains function similar to a computer, others and I believe it’s possible our physical bodies are nothing more than mind or soul directed virtual reality machines. True personal reality might lie beyond our bodies.

Yet, because we are human at this present time, we can only react to the stimulus presented to us through what we know of “the natural world,” by UFO intelligences, through the holographic universe, or otherwise. Once we can perceive the limitless possibilities of an eternal, infinite universe, we can began to develop the talents it might take in order to function beyond the physical, beyond the infancy state of who we are. Yet, as above, we cannot do this alone, it takes some kind of outside force or power to provide us a growth stimulus.

For some of us, UFO intelligences seem to the this force. For all of us, simple experience of any kind is a stimulating force for growth. Simply reading a book or receiving any idea visually or audibly can be a stimulus. And we already know we all learn and grow from one another.

Yet, the question remains: What is the primal stimulus? Is it our mysterious God? Is it UFO intelligences? Is it simply holographic messages that just happen to flow our way? Or is it all of these? Whatever the answer, I believe it’s possible for us to grow in leaps and bounds from the free knowledge offered to us by the holographic nature of the universe. All we need is first to open our hearts and minds, the stimulus and will, then the talent to make it happen.

This I know: When one contemplates his past –seconds past or centuries past — his own history can become a stimulus for growth. Since I have UFOs in my past, I’ve been orchestrated to grow in a certain direction –and that is toward my role in the vast interdimensional, holographic, so-called ET/human project.
