This concept would amount to an external hologram being observed by our PMR representation of eyes. The model here is rather of a data stream creating the experience of PMR with no 'out there' like the holodeck concept of the Star Trek franchise.
Thanks for the explanations. I knew there was sth about fractals, too, in Tom's work (been a long time since I read it now).
Still, regarding the quote above one question for me remains: I thought that this holographic theory also states that everything
is holographic, including the "PMR representation of our eyes" (and brains, bodies, cells, ...) - just like any other receptive / perceptive element of our vehicle used in the respective (N)PMR is a hologram too.
This is where the Stark Trek holodeck metaphor doesn't quite hold for me. We ourselves ("projected" into PMR, so to speak) would thus not be 'external to' the holographic construct of the reality experienced, including our brains, eyes, etc.
This, for me, again roughly equates to Tom's model. The (Bigger) Computer providing the data streams is thus sth like a 'projector' of (holographic / virtual) bytes, providing for our consciousness experience in reality frames. At least that is what I thought the holographic theory meant (too). And maybe every bit/byte contains or mirrors "the whole" somehow, too? (Just speculating).
