How much do we know about the human perceptions controlled by the brain? Let's begin by stating the obvious things:
- We have 5 main senses (taste, smell, touch, hear and vision) and one additional sixth, as it would come clear at the end of this article, which is responsible for the recovery of images in our mind and their manipulation. Each of the five main senses receive information from the outside world in the form of different vibrational frequencies as quantum physics tells us. More than 80% of the information which we receive regarding the outside world comes in visual form - we rely mainly on our sense of vision. The images we perceive unlock different reactions, thought activities and memories within us. According to mainstream science, each separate part of the brain has a certain function. The hippocampus in the limbic system, for example, stores short-term memory, the amygdala controls a vast part of our emotions which we experience based on the information we receive from the outside world through our senses, the instinctive brain is responsible for our primal instincts, for our "run or fight" behavior, as well as for all automatic processes in our body, such as the digestive system, blood circulation, homeostasis, etc., the neocortex translates our thoughts into symbols (words) so they can be externally expressed or stored in a model understandable to us.


It gets interesting when we try to understand how all of this is happening each second without a single mistake. About 400 billion bits of information reaches the brain every second from our five senses, but he is able to process only 2000 of them, as the normal human brain is not capable of processing the information with the same speed as it is coming from the outside world. Since more than 80% of the information is coming through the visual sense (in most cases). The retina of our eyes contains 3 different types of photoreceptor cells, for example the well-known "rods" and "cones". The "cones" are responsible for the processing of colors from  light. 

When we look at an object we don't actually see the object itself, but the light which is reflected from it. When light, which is made out of photons, makes contact with the photoreceptor cells they trigger various chemical processes that create eletrical impulses through a process called "transduction". Those electrical impulses then reach the back part of our brain called "Optical Lobe" that redirects them to the "Visual Cortex" where they get translated into images. But how exactly does the brain manages to translate the information from the electrical impulses from our senses into different tastes, objects, sounds, feelings and scents?


In order to find the answer to that question, we must first understand how a hologram is created and in order to understand how a hologram is created, we must have some basic knowledge regarding colors. A color is a certain wavelength of light (a certain frequency). In the sunlight, for example, all of the main 7 colors are present - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and volet. Each of these main colors have a different frequency of vibrations. 

A hologram represents a 3D image of a certain object created only from light - without any solidity or any other specific qualities, it is just pure visual interpretation of the object. The usual method used in creating holograms is as follows:
- A laser with a specific frequency of light is being shot, the light from the laser passes through a diffuser that spreads it into a wider range, the spread light then hits a half mirror that splits the beam in 2. One part of the beam is reflected with the help of mirrors towards the object (Object Beam), the second part of the beam (Reference beam) is reflected from a mirror as well only to meet with the object beam on a holographic plate. When the 2 beams meet they create an interference pattern which gets sealed in the holographic plate. In order for an interference pattern to appear 2 waves have to meet - that's why the beam is split in 2. If the frequency of the 2 waves is the same, they create a "constructive interference", which means they are in coherence (same rhythm) that makes the pattern having increased amplitude and perfectly stored information, thus we have a perfect holographic representation of the object. 

[ In this picture the "diffuser" is not shown ]

For people who process better the information visually - Imagine that you throw 2 stones at the same time, with same weight and shape in water. When they hit the water ripples with the same frequency will be created and when they meet, bigger ripples will be created. If you freeze the water at that moment you will have a model of that constructive interference. More or less, the same thing happens when the object beam and the reference beam meet at the holographic plate.

After this process was done, the only thing we have to do if we want to recover the image from the holographic plate is to irradiate it with the same frequency of light which was used to seal the image in it. The unique qualities of the holograms are: - They are non-dimensional, meeaning they don't occupy any space, therefore many different holograms can be sealed within the same holographic plate. Also if the holographic plate is broken, each piece could restore the full image, but with less details. 


Knowing all this we can start to understand the human brain much better. In the middle of the 20th century, Karl Pribram created a theory explaining the holographic brain/mind. Pribram along with Karl Lashley had made many dissections of monkeys' and rats' brains in search for the parts that store the long-term memory only to find that the memories opperate on the holographic principle. There is not a single part of the brain which stores our long-term memory. Regardless which part of the brain is damaged or removed, the memories always remain, but with less details just as the broken holographic plate - it still stores the whole image, but with less details. You could imagine this as a photo which was taken without focusing on the image - it turns out to be blurry, but this blur actually contains the whole image with less details. At the same time that Pribram established the idea of the holographic brain/mind, the famous physicist David Bohm represented a model in which the whole Universe is a hologram with an implicate order (everything exist in 1 single point) and the explicate order (that which comes out of the implicate order), which is based on quantum physics. Pribram and Bohm suggested that the brain is just a part of one bigger hologram - the Universe, and even though it is just a small part of the hologram, it stores all the information about it.

The very act of observing an object creates a reference beam, which then meets with the object beam coming from the reflected light of the object we're observing, their collision creates an interference pattern and we see an image. The brain has around 100 billion neurons capable of creating a number of connections greater than the number of all atoms in the Universe - impressive right? The brain also operates through electrical impulses, thus different parts of the brain can recreate the experiences of different scents, tastes, feelings, sounds and images depending on the interference patterns which every different brain part can create. Meaning, when we observe a "new" object and we give our attention to it, we create connections (synapses) between neurons which, when triggered again, can restore the electrical interference pattern, therefore we see the image of the object in our mind - that's called "visual memory".

Explained simply: Each of our five senses acts as a "reference beam". Every object can be seen, tasted, heard, tasted and smelled, thus every object acts as an "object beam" carrying these qualities. When that object beam meets the reference beam from our senses we experience that object as it is. This experience creates certain synapses (connections) between the neurons of the brain, this creation of synapses is analogical to the storing of the hologram within the plate. When we want to recall the memory of that object, the pineal gland seems to act as a trigger (reference beam) for the synapses associated with that particular object. When triggered, the synapses produce back the interference pattern and we experience once again that object with its qualities within our mind.


Every visual information that does not come from our 2 physical eyes, is most likely being given form through the pineal gland in our brain, which is also called "The seat of the soul" by Decartes and was very important for the Egyptians, Mayas, Aztecs, Sumerians, also to the Tibetan culture and hindus. The pineal gland is a synonym for the "3rd eye" and it is a manifestation of the 6th chakra - "Ajna" according to Yogic tradition, it is also called the "sixth sense". We see every image imagined in our mind thanks to our pineal gland which contains the same photoreceptor cells as our eyes, therefore it is capable of perceiving light and redirect it to the Visual Cortex for translation through a process called "phototransduction". This gland also contains crystals with piezoluminescentic character, meaning they emit light when being hit or compressed, and are also piezoelectric, meaning they are capable of reacting towards outside electromagnetic fields. It seems like our pineal gland is capable of creating interference patterns so we can see images within our mind even though no light had reached our two facial eyes. If the pineal gland is capable of pulling information regarding memories or different images and create the interference patterns that give us the exprience of memories, then that could explain some of the perhaps existing psychic faculties.
