By that I mean that all perception is an interfacing of vibrations.
The atom is a tiny little vibration, and all matter and energy is composed of atoms, and the receptor cells of the human body are atomic as well.
So what we perceive as solid and real is nothing more than the interaction of vibrational information.
If we look at the cells and organs of our bodies, and the universe around us, simply as collections of information, we can see how any human being can be a programmer of their life! Our bodies are information systems: coherent, and programmable, collections of vibration.
The liver, for example, is programmed to eliminate waste; the heart is programmed to pump blood, the lungs to receive oxygen and release carbon dioxide, etc.
The more you know about your body's information systems, the better you will be at programming it.
The universe is vibrational and informational, because a vibration is a unit of information.
The two things are interchangeable, just as matter and energy are interchangeable, as Einstein showed us.
A vibration is dynamic, constantly changing, and evolving.
When you program a computer, for example, you give it a set of instructions that cause it to do something.
The instructions to the computer are little packets of vibration; electronic impulses.
What the computer outputs are also little packets of vibration that you see on your monitor and through your speakers.
When you change the computer program, what is displayed also changes.
How do these vibrational information systems work? Well, we can get an idea by examining a hologram.
In 1947 a Hungarian scientist, Dennis Gabor, developed the theory of holography, for which he won the Nobel Prize in 1971.
A hologram is made by shining a beam of light directly onto a light-sensitive plate (the reference beam), and then combining it with another beam of light that is redirected from a series of mirrors onto the object (the object beam), and back to the recording plate.
The two light beams create an interference pattern, which is then recorded on a light sensitive plate.
The interference pattern is just a vibrational intermingling of two sets of waveforms.
When light is shined onto the plate, a vivid, 3 dimensional object results.
A hologram has the amazing property that even a tiny section of it contains all of the information for the entire hologram.
In other words, the hologram has the entire information system for the complete image programmed into every piece of it.
"Hologram" is just a fancy word that means "vibrational information system.
" The Holographic Principle was introduced by physicist Gerardus t'Hooft in 1993; it states that the physics of any system can be described on the boundary of that system.
In other words, the physics (the reality) of a 3 dimensional system can be described in two dimensions.
So a holographic information system light-imprinted upon a flat, 2 dimensional plate can produce the 3 dimensional object perfectly.
What if the universe itself is holographic? This is the question Michael Talbot asked in his famous book, "The Holographic Universe.
" If a tiny little flat, 2 dimensional light sensitive plate can produce a startlingly real 3 dimensional image, imagine what a spherical hologram that is 13.
5 billion light years in diameter (the size of the universe) could do! My guidance tells me that such a gigantic spherical hologram would create a reality that is so persuasively real in every aspect, that it would essentially overwhelm the senses and appear to be the only possible reality.
It would create a reality so convincing that spiritual beings could even become materialists, and actually believe nonsense like "you only go around once in life!" That is the purpose, apparently, of a physical existence.
It provides such an incredibly sophisticated gameboard that it excludes all other realities, and provides an opportunity for an immortal being to become finite and vulnerable.
It provides an opportunity to "test" yourself in an infinite variety of situations, for there are an infinite number of ways to program a physical universe.
That is the power of information systems! My guidance tells me that there are literally trillions of different universes out there, each as real as the one we live in.
Such a complex spherical hologram could also record every single impression by every single physical being that existed within it.
It could contain emotions, feelings, thoughts, and trillions of other perceptics (Akashic Records).
The more sophisticated a hologram is, the more real and solid it becomes.
If you imagine the universe as a gigantic 3 dimensional hologram, you can imagine how real it could be if you immersed yourself directly inside it, which is precisely what we do when we incarnate into our physical bodies.
The physical body is the computer that interprets the vibrational content of the universe, and displays it for us to interact with.
In other words, our receptor cells are programmed to recognize a certain (very small) bandwidth of vibration, and make that convincingly real to us.
The only thing we have to remember is that we, as spiritual beings, are the programmers.
This is easy to forget in a physical incarnation that is so convincing.
(This is what is meant when people say "the universe is illusion.
" What they mean is that we only see an interpreted, and infinitesimal slice, of the universal bandwidth of vibration.
Of course what we experience is not illusion at all; but it IS illusory to say that what we can observe with the five human senses, and what we can infer from scientific instruments, is the only reality).
Here's the point: all physical systems are information systems and have programming that determines how the physical processes work, and the form of the component objects.
The earth is an information system, your life is also an information system.
And the programming for these systems is alterable! Obviously, a program is no good if it just does the same thing over and over.
Who wants to go back to DOS 6.
0? And a program is also no good if the program itself is not accessible.
Where does the programming for these information systems exist? I'm told that it exists OUTSIDE the perception of the five human senses, just like the programming for the computer exists outside the perception of the computer user, in an electronic, vibrational matrix inside the computer's central processing unit.
All the user knows is the he or she turns the thing on, and it works.
This programming is beyond the level of physical matter and is accessible by a spiritual being, even while incarnated in a physical body.
This is what people like Esther Hicks have been trying to say for decades.
All scientific discoveries come from individuals, and in some sort of intuitive leap, or hunch.
No skeptic or committee ever invented anything! That's because the skeptic is so busy defending the status quo that he is unable to be original, and the committee is busy shooting down brilliant ideas, in order to conform to the do-able, which is, essentially, the lowest common denominator of the collective.
(If you've ever been on a committee, you know exactly what I'm talking about.
And by the way, politics mostly operates by committee.
Is it any wonder that politics is so petty, tawdry, and inefficient?) Discovery always originates at the level of thought, and is translated to the physical.
The programming level for physical information systems exists in the subtle realm of thought.
We see this in everyday life.
You make a decision to change your life, you act in different ways, you get different manifestations.
But it's much more powerful than that!
