    As metioned, Bohm believes that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram. The "whole in every part" nature of a hologram provides us with an entirely new way of understanding organization and order. Bohm believes the reason subatomic particles are able to remain in contact with one another regardless of the distance separating them is not because they are sending some sort of mysterious signal back and forth, but because their separateness is an illusion. He argues that at some deeper level of reality such particles are not individual entities, but are actually extensions of the same fundamental something. In a holographic universe, even space and time could no longer be viewed as fundamentals. Because concepts such as location break down in a universe in which nothing is truly separate from anything else, time and 3-dimensional space would also have to be viewed as projections of this deeper order. At its deeper level reality is a sort of superhologram in which the past, present, and future all exist simultaneously. Allowing, for the sake of the argument, that the superhologram is the matrix that has given birth to everything in the universe, at the very least it contains every subatomic particle that has been or will be -- every configuration of matter and energy that is possible, from snowflakes to quasars, from blue whales to gamma rays. It must be seen as a sort of cosmic storehouse of "All That Is."

    Our uncanny ability to quickly retreive whatever information we need from the enermous store of our memories becomes more understandable if the brain functions according to holographic principles. If a friend asks you to tell him what comes to mind when he says the word "zebra," you do not have to clumsily sort back through some gigantic and cerebral alphabetic file to arrive at an answer. Instead, associations like "stripped," "horselike," and "animal native to Africa" all pop into your head instantly. Indeed, one of the most amazing things about the human thinking process is that every piece of information seems instantly cross-correlated with every other piece of information -- another feature intrinsic to the hologram. The storage of memory is not the only neurophysiological puzzle that becomes more tractable in light of Pribram's holographic model of the brain. Another is how the brain is able to translate the avalanche of frequencies it receives via the senses (light frequencies, sound frequencies, and so on) into the concrete world of our perceptions. Encoding and decoding frequencies is precisely what a hologram does best. Just as a hologram functions as a sort of lens, a translating device able to convert an apparently meaningless blur of frequencies into a coherent image, Pribram believes the brain also comprises a lens and uses holographic principles to mathematically convert the frequencies it receives through the senses into the inner world of our perceptions.

    But the most mind-boggling aspect of Pribram's holographic model of the brain is what happens when it is put together with Bohm's theory. For if the concreteness of the world is but a secondary reality and what is "there" is actually a holographic blur of frequencies, and if the brain is also a hologram and only selects some of the frequencies out of this blur and mathematically transforms them into sensory perceptions, what becomes of objective reality? Put quite simply, it ceases to exist. As the religions of the East have long upheld, the material world is Maya, an illusion, and although we may think we are physical beings moving through a physical world, this too is an illusion. We are really "receivers" floating through a kaleidoscopic sea of frequency, and what we extract from this sea and transmogrify into physical reality is but one channel from many extracted out of the superhologram. This striking new picture of reality, the synthesis of Bohm and Pribram's views, has come to be called the holographic paradigm. Some believe it may solve some mysteries that have never before been explainable by science and even establish the paranormal as a part of nature. In a universe in which individual brains are actually indivisible portions of the greater hologram and everything is interconnected, telepathy may merely be the accessing of the holographic level. It is obviously much easier to understand how information can travel from the mind of individual 'A' to that of individual 'B' at a far distance point and helps to understand a number of unsolved puzzles in psychology.

    'ELF and Mind Control.'

    "'ELF' stands for 'extremely long frequency' electromagnetic waves, from the very slow brain frequencies up to about 100 cycles per second.... But the 'Mind Control' label really upset Koslov. He ordered the SRI investigations for the Navy stopped, and canceled another $35,000 in Navy funds slated for more remote viewing work." Contrary to Koslov's attempt to kill the research, the Navy quietly continued to fork out $100,000 for a two-year project directed by a bionics specialist. The "remote viewing" team at SRI was really engaged in projecting words and images directly to the cranium. It was not a humanitarian pastime: the project was military and test subjects are subjected to a lifetime of EM torture plied with the same thorough disregard for human rights as the radiation tests conducted at the height of the Cold War. To be sure, the treatment subjects have received at the hands of their own government would be considered atrocities if practiced in wartime.

    Mind control was also used in domestic covert operations designed to further the CIA's heady ambitions, and during the Vietnam War period SRI was a hive of covert political subterfuge. The Symbionese Liberation Army, like the People's Temple, was a creation of the CIA. The SLA had at its core a clique of black ex-convicts from Vacaville Prison. Donald DeFreeze, otherwise known as "Cinque," led the SLA. He was formerly an informant for the LAPD's Criminal Conspiracy Section and the director of Vacaville's Black Cultural Association (BCA), a covert mind control unit with funding from the CIA channeled through SRI. The Menlo Park behavior modification specialists experimented with psychoactive drugs administered to members of the BCA. Black prisoners were programmed to murder selected black leaders once on the outside. The CIA/SRI zombie killer hit list included Oakland school superintendent Dr. Marcus Foster, and Panthers Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, among others. DeFreeze stated that at Vacaville in 1971-72, he was the subject of a CIA mind control experiment. He described his incarceration on the prison's third floor, where he was corralled by CIA agents who drugged him and said he would become the leader of a radical movement and kidnap a wealthy person. After his escape from Vacaville (an exit door was left unlocked for him), that's exactly what he did.

    EM mind control machines were championed at SRI by Dr. Karl Pribram, director of the Neurophychology Research Laboratory: "I certainly could educate a child by putting an electrode in the lateral hypothalmus and then selecting the situations at which I stimulate it. In this was I can grossly change his behavior." Psychology Today touted Pribram as "The Magellan of Brain Science." He obtained his B.S. and M.D. degrees at the University of Chicago, and at SRI studied how the brain processes and stores sensory imagery. He is credited with discovering that mental imaging bears a close resemblance to hologram projection (the basis for transmitting images to the brains of test subjects under the misnomer "remote viewing"?)

    The SRI/SAIC psi experiments were supervised at Langley by John McMahon, second in command under William Casey, succeeding Bobby Ray Inman, the SAIC director. McMahon has, according to Philip Agee, the CIA whistle-blowing exile, an affinity for "technological exotics for CIA covert actions." He was recruited by the Agency after his graduation from Holy Cross College. He is a former director of the Technical Services Division, deputy director for Operations, and in 1982 McMahon was appointed deputy director of Central Intelligence. He left the Agency six years later to take the position of president of the Lockheed Missiles and Space Systems Group. In 1994 he moved on the Draper Laboratories. He is a director of the Defense Enterprise Fund and an adviser to congressional committees.

    Many of the SRI "empaths" were mustered from L. Ron Hubbard's Church of Scientology, Harold Puthoff, the Institute's senior researcher, is a leading Scientologist. Two "remote viewers" from SRI have also held rank in the Church: Ingo Swann, a Class VII Operating Thetan, a founder of the Scientology Center in Los Angeles, and the late Pat Price. Puthoff and Targ's lab assistant was a Scientologist married to a minister of the church. When Swann joined SRI, he stated openly that fourteen "Clears" participated in the experiments, "more than I would suspect." At the time he denied CIA involvement, but now acknowledges, "it was rather common knowledge all along who the sponsor was, although in documents the identity of the Agency was concealed behind the sobriquet of 'an east-coast scientist.' The Agency's interest was quite extensive. A number of agents of the CIA came themselves ultimately to SRI to act as subjects in "remote viewing" experiments, as did some members of Congress."

    i kinda push this on a lot of threads...a lot.

    this is the work of Dr. Eric Braverman who wrote The Edge Effect. Check it out, its worth buying.
    im seeing him in New York on saturday! woo!

    Complete bullshit! I bet 90% of these guys don't have the faintest idea what's going on with the ongoing projects and the like! Universities and research institutions pay a hell of a lot of people for doing nothing! Dude, totally wasted taxpayers' money (they are usually funded by the federal government)

    I've been reading a lot on neuroscience and neuroanatomy lately and the 8 functions seem to be associated with particular regions of the brain.

    Each cerebral hemisphere is divided in into 4 lobes; Frontal, Parietal, Temporal and Occipital. The frontal lobes are the home of the motor cortex, where voluntary movements are triggered. The parietal lobes are the home of the somatosensory (touch and body position) cortex, the temporal lobes are the home of the auditory (sound) cortex, and the occipital lobes are the home of the visual cortex; these are where sensory information is first processed. This suggests a basic split between action (T/F) in the front and perception (S/N) in the back.

    In the areas not part of motor or sensory cortex ares the areas of association cortex, where sensory data is analyzed and compared with one's memories and factual knowledge and then manipulated and sent to the motor cortex. It is these association areas, IMO, in which where we can find the neurological correlations of Jung's functions. The association areas are the pre-frontal cortex (PFC), the parietal association cortex (PAC) and the temporal association cortex (TAC). The the pre-frontal cortex can be further divided into the dorsal-lateral (top) PFC and orbital-frontal (bottom) PFC.


    PFC: Planning, self-control, manipulating mental images, motivation, short-term memory

    PAC: analyzing incoming sensory information in terms of spatial relationships between entities in real or abstract space. (often called "where" processing)

    TAC: analyzing incoming sensory information in relation to past experience, categories, and factual knowledge. (often called "what" processing)



    Finally, there is an asymmetry in the function of the two hemispheres. The left hemisphere is more focused and literal while the right hemisphere more gestalt and broad. If you are shown a picture of a cow the left hemisphere would generate associations closed centered on the cow itself while the right hemisphere would generate associations of a more broad character, like drinking milk this morning, memories of growing up on a farm, etc. This suggests a dichotomy of F and N on the right and T and S on the left.



    Thus:

    Ti = Left Dorsal-Lateral PFC

    Fi = Right Dorsal-Lateral PFC

    Te = Left Orbital-Frontal PFC

    Fe = Right Orbital-Frontal PFC

    Si = Left TAC

    Ni = Right TAC

    Se = Left PAC

    Ne = Right PAC
    Exactly. Congratulations. You have it.
