At the rate of about one book a month, I am reading the Law Of One, by an ‘entity’ who calls himself Ra. This being states that he is from a dimension much higher than that of human beings, and that our souls reincarnate over and over until lessons of life and love are learned, and we are able to advance spirituality. Ra discusses in great detail the idea of a holographic universe, the idea that we are all connected to each other and part of what we would call God, and the various levels of our awareness. A lot of this stuff, I already believe in, such as reincarnation and the hologram we exist in. Some researchers from a university of Japan claim they can now prove a hologram universe is possible:
Prepare for a head trip: The universe may actually be a hologram and everything you see an illusion, according to new research that could prove gravity comes from thin, vibrating strings—holograms of events in a simpler, flatter cosmos. It was an idea first put forth by physicist Juan Maldacena in 1997, but never tested until now. Japanese researchers now have mathematical evidence, via two studies on black holes, that this hologram theory may in fact be right. If proven, it would solve inconsistencies in Einstein’s theory of gravity, and be a “solid footing” for string theory, Nature reports. – from Newser
Basically, The Law Of One covers three main principles. 1. That the most important truth of our existence is our ability to choose, known as our Free Will. 2. There are two main paths we can walk, that of Service To Self, which means being selfish and acquiring personal possessions, power, wealth, etc., and that of Service To Others, which entails giving more than receiving, and helping others more than helping ourselves, for a mutual sort of happiness. 3. That we are all fragments of a greater whole, or God, and that when we help each other, we are really helping ourselves and God, and conversely, when we hurt each other, we hurt ourselves and God. I’ve studied organized religion enough to know that it’s all about control and domination, and that greater truths can be found when we look internally, into our hearts and minds, instead of externally, where we expect somebody to tell us who God is and where God can be found. I’ve read books 1 and 2 of The Law Of One so far, and if you can handle some of the profound depth of the question and answer sessions between Ra and those that have channeled him, I recommend that you give this series a try. Here are some excerpts from the Wiki page:
The Ra Material, also known as the The Law of One, is a series of five books authored by a non-human intelligence named Ra via their questioner and channel, through the process of channeling. It was published between 1982 and 1998 by Schiffer Books. The publishers attribute some or all of the authorship to Don Elkins, Jim McCarty, and Carla L. Rueckert who acted as the channel for Ra. The series presents commentary and transcripts of dialogue between a questioner and Ra, who is described as an entity composed of an entire civilization of extraterrestrial beings that are fused into one unified consciousness.
Ra describes that humans are composed of a mind, a body, and a spirit, and therefore would refer to an individual human as a “mind/body/spirit complex”. Ra says that humans, along with the Earth, are going through a process called harvest. This included statements that there are many other living beings in the universe that are similar to humans but differ in body, intelligence, culture, and spiritual evolution. These beings, like humans, are referred to as mind/body/spirit complexes.
Ra’s describes that individuals from other densities have incarnated on Earth to contribute to the harvest.:12.26-12.31 Ra expressed that all mind/body/spirit complexes, after being formed in third density, progress upward through the densities as they evolve spiritually, until they become one with the Creator at the end of seventh density. This evolution is accomplished in a series of incarnations into a body, within third and fourth densities. The physical body was no longer necessary in higher densities.
In order to progress from third density to fourth density, individuals must make a choice between service to others or service to self: or, in ordinary language, between altruism and selfishness. The purpose of third density is to make this choice. The purpose of experiencing the sometimes harsh environment of 3rd density, no matter which location in the universe, is in order to make this choice of service and thus progress.
A lot of these general concepts match with the founding principles of major world religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity as seen in the New Testament. I don’t agree with everything in these books, as my personal research contradicts a few details, but for the most part, the Ra material goes a long way into explaining why things are the way they are.
For other hologram-simulation related concepts, I can point you to two other books I’ve read recently, The Emerald Tablets Of Thoth The Atlantean, which matches very closely to principles of The Law Of One, and Rhonda Byrnes’ book The Secret, which contends that we can control our personal happiness and wealth just by adjusting our way of thinking, simply stated as ‘Thoughts Become Things,’ and this clearly implies that our universe can be manipulated by our selves.
