There is no such thing as matter?

Max Planck, upon accepting the Nobel Prize for physics in 1918 said, "We have now discovered that there is no such thing as matter, it is all just different rates of vibration designed by an unseen intelligence." (from the book, "Lost Star" by Walter Cruttenden: 2006)

We all see differently. There are even those who see sound. This goes for all five senses. I guess the proposition that the universe is a Hologram depends upon the definition of Hologram. Hope the book has a good glossary.

I just started the book, and find it amazing that our brains may keep information in a holographic format. I wonder what the mirrors are that make this possible.

The book is starting to remind me of the movie: "Matrix" which I will have to see again to understand some of the concepts proposed. I think movies make things easier to visualize

here is a reference for you other posters (=

from http://www.holophile.com/about.htm

"""Unlike photography or painting, holography can render a subject with complete dimensional fidelity. A hologram creates everything your eyes see -- depth, size, shape, texture, and relative position – from many points of view. In fact, the term "hologram" was coined from the Greek words holos, meaning "whole," and gramma, meaning "message." """
