LOL! Wrong. If you read The Universe as a Hologram by Michael Talbot and then read Mark Horton's NDE the connection between them is striking. In order to see and understand the connection between them you have to understand what a holographic universe implies. But since belief is irrelevant you are free to go through life in ignorance if you want to. We all end up at the same place in the end anyway.
"If this doesn’t blow your socks off, then Craig Hogan, who has just been appointed director of Fermilab’s Center for Particle Astrophysics, has an even bigger shock in store: ‘If the GEO600 result is what I suspect it is, then we are all living in a giant cosmic hologram.’"
"University of London physicist Dr. David Bohm, for example, believes Aspect's findings imply that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram."
excerpt from an interview with Dr. Brian Green, PhD Physicist at Columbia University in National Geographic
"In the final chapter of your book, you suggest that the world may be a hologram. That sounds very Matrix-like."
"It's a very speculative idea that seems to, strangely enough, naturally emerge from string theory. Basically, the fundamental laws of the universe don't really operate in the environment around us. They may operate on sort of a distant bounding surface and give rise to the familiar world that we experience in much the same way that a thin piece of plastic, when illuminated correctly—if it's a hologram—can yield a three-dimensional image.
It might be that the deep laws are more like the thin piece of plastic existing on a thin bounding surface. Everything we know might be akin to a holographic projection of those distant laws."
excerpt from The Universe as a Hologram by Michael Talbot:
"If the apparent separateness of subatomic particles is illusory, it means that at a deeper level of reality all things in the universe are infinitely interconnected. The electrons in a carbon atom in the human brain are connected to the subatomic particles that comprise every salmon that swims, every heart that beats, and every star that shimmers in the sky. Everything interpenetrates everything, and although human nature may seek to categorize and pigeonhole and subdivide, the various phenomena of the universe, all apportionments are of necessity artificial and all of nature is ultimately a seamless web." http://www.earthportals.com/hologram.html
