Neurophysiologist Karl Pribram investigates the Spectral Holographic
Domain: in Brain, Navigation and the Universe. Followed by a screening
of Rainer Werner Fassbinder's epic Welt am Draht (World on a Wire).
Karl Pribram is the leading exponent of a holonomic theory of the
human brain backed up by hefty experimental research. All parts
contain the story of the whole, with the term holonomic referring to a
dynamic or changing hologram.
A hologram is a total writing of a scene, a completely realistic
three-dimensional representation. Every part of the hologram contains
information about the whole; cut up a hologram into small pieces and
the original image remains visible, all of the information is intact;
the window on the world is solely reduced.
Holography presents a transformation from the spatial into the
frequency domain such as is enacted by the Fourier transform formula;
holocaustic mathematics enabled by Leibniz' prime transformational
tool, the discretising integral of Gravity's Rainbow.
In the reverse direction, Light is in the frequency or holographic
domain. An inverse Fourier transform is enacted by a lens which can
focus a beam of light, converting the frequency nature of the
information into a spatial image:
Remove the converging lens in a slide projector that forms the
image. Place a slide in the projector and project the light onto a
screen. No image will form. Technically, the light incident on the
screen is in a holographic form. Each point on the screen is receiving
information from every point from the slide. If a converging lens is
placed at a location between the screen and the slide projector an
image can be formed on the screen. The lens can now be moved to new
locations in a plane cutting through the light path to the screen and
in each case a complete image is formed (Taylor, 1978).
The consequences of such domain transforms within the context of
consciousness are extreme. xxxxx pairs Karl Pribram's lecture with a
rare screening of Rainer Werner Fassbinder's sci-fi magnum opus Welt
A world where one is able to make projections of people with a
computer. And of course that leads to the uncertainty of whether
someone is himself a projection, since in this virtual world the
projections resemble reality. Perhaps another larger world made us a
virtual one? In this sense it deals with an old philosophical model,
which here takes on a certain horror (RWF)
Transformations enacted by both the lens of Pribram and of Fassbinder
open up the total consequences of the universe as hologram under a
rereading of the instantaneous communication of totally distant
subatomic particles. Holographic theory presents a radical view of
reality which well connects with monadology and computation, with a
stress on the framing of perception, the question of which abstraction
or domain we inter information within.
