We are thrilled to share the news that Dr. Jude Currivan, a great friend and contributor to Merlian News, has recently won the 2017 Silver Nautilus Award for Science and Cosmology, for her wonderful book, The Cosmic Hologram. As we wrote in our book review last year: “Dr. Currivan has a remarkable ability to synthesize a wide variety of detailed scientific input and then extrapolate from that data a lucid theory of an “informational universe” that may bridge the gap, or reconcile, the theories of relativity and quantum physics. The idea that the Cosmos is holographic, that is carrying the information of the whole in every bit, is just a stepping stone to the author’s well-reasoned argument that everything stems from information, including consciousness and creation.” Now it appears that there is new evidence supporting her theories.
In 2017, a UK, Canadian, and Italian study provided, what researchers believe, is the first observational evidence that our Universe could be a vast complex hologram, further support for the ideas and scientific evidence at all scales of existence, and across numerous fields of research, put
forth by Dr. Jude Currivan in her book, The Cosmic Hologram.
Professor Kostas Skenderis of The University of Southampton commented: “Holography is a huge leap forward in the way we think about the structure and creation of the Universe. Einstein’s theory of general relativity explains almost everything large scale in the Universe very well, but starts to unravel when examining its origins and mechanisms at quantum level. Scientists have been working for decades to combine Einstein’s theory of gravity and quantum theory. Some believe the concept of a holographic Universe has the potential to reconcile the two.”
In May 2018, in a paper published shortly after his death, Professor Stephen Hawking and co-author Professor Thomas Hertog argue that our Universe is finite and closed – again in line with the understanding set out in The Cosmic Hologram.
In her book, Dr Currivan explains how Quantum Mechanics and Einstein’s Theory of Relativity can indeed be reconciled, if energy-matter and space-time are considered as complementary expressions of information, that enable our Universe to exist and evolve in a finite life-cycle, and as a closed,
and unified, entity. She further explores how dynamic, relational in-formational patterns pervade its holographic manifestation and underpin its evolutionary impulse.
Jude Currivan, Ph.D., is a cosmologist, futurist, planetary healer and previously one of the most senior business women in the UK. She has a master’s degree in physics from Oxford University and a doctorate in archaeology from the University of Reading in the UK. She is the author of 6 books, the latest, The Cosmic Hologram, winning the 2017 Silver Nautilus Book Award for science and cosmology.
Jude will be appearing locally:
