Science & The Secret Doctrine
7a. Information as Third Force
In another Scientific American article, Black Hole Computers, Lloyd and Ng similarly emphasize the importance of ‘information’ as the third force in the new physics, noting:
The statement “it from bit,” suggests
‘it,’ meaning a material and energetic system, comes from ‘bit,’
meaning bits of
information. In modern physics,
information is now regarded as a primary element in nature. From this perspective, everything is a
computer, as everything processes bits of information—whether an
black hole, a cell or a human heart.
Thus, a trinity of intelligence, energy and matter is
basic to the new
science—as it is to mystical orientations and The Secret Doctrine. According to Lloyd and Ng, the universe
itself is a giant computer and not only that, but a quantum computer. They quote physicist Zizzi, “It from
qubit,” –or quantum bit, as a variation on Wheeler’s “It from
7b. A Tale of Entropies and Black Holes
In “Information in the
Holographic Universe,” Dr. Bekenstein explains aspects of
theory as apply to black holes and the emerging holographic theory. He suggests that: “Theoretical results
about black holes suggest that the universe could be like a gigantic
In his analysis, Dr.
Bekenstein explains that the law of entropy traditionally
material and thermal processes can also be applied to information
processes. In 1877, physicist Ludwig
Boltzmann defined thermodynamic entropy as the number of
microscopic states that particles in a body of matter could be in: For example, consider all the possible
of the gas molecules in the room around you and their possible
momentum. It was in 1948, that Claude
Shannon defined entropy in terms of information theory.
The Shannon entropy is the number of
binary bits needed to decode the information content within a message.
measures and concepts of entropy are “conceptually equivalent”
higher degrees of freedom), although they are expressed in different
units—either ‘units of energy divided by temperature’ for thermal
as ‘bits’ which are “essentially
dimensionless” for information entropy. The
conservation of information is also
demanded within quantum mechanics.
According to the Generalized Second Law of Thermodynamics, the loss or gain of entropy in a material/energetic system must be compensated for by changes in the entropy of information—as one balances the other in order to maintain an overall GSL Bekenstein explains a consequence of this principle as it applied to the physics of black holes:
… when matter falls into a
black hole, the increase in black hole entropy always compensates or
overcompensates for the “lost” entropy of the matter. More generally,
of black hole entropies and the ordinary entropy outside the black
decrease. This is the generalized second
law—GSL for short. (p. 62)
This implies that when the
matter and energy of a quantum system are absorbed into a black hole,
amounts of information should spew out or be made available within the
substrates of space. Scientific America (November 2004)

“Stephen Hawking was Wrong. Matter

and energy are absorbed into a black hole is compensated for by an
the entropy of the information—thus, answers come out—like the 0 and 1
sequences illustrated here as emerging from a mini black hole processor.
In an article on Black
Hole Computers, Lloyd and Ng (November, 2004) explain that in the
Hawking proposed that when matter fell into a black hole, the radiation
produced was simply random. However, the
newer view now endorsed by Hawking is that the outgoing radiation is
random but “a processed form of the matter that falls in.” The authors thus declare: “Black holes,
too compute.” (p. 54) Furthermore, the authors note: “… a black
nothing more or less than a computer compressed to its smallest
possible size.” Thus, when matter
falls into a black hole
past the event horizon, it cannot leave but the “information
The total storage capacity
of a black hole is proportional to its surface area.
Susskind (2008) states the principle: The
entropy of a black hole, measured in
bits, is proportional to the area of its horizon, measured in Planck
(p. 155) The illustration thus depicts the black hole as having its
horizon divided into bits, triangular sections containing 0’s or 1’s. This is counter-intuitive, as one might have
expected that the information content of the black hole would be
related to its
interior volume. However, this is not so
and instead the information is encoded on the surface of the black
two dimensional surface instead of in the 3 dimensional interior volume.
Paradoxically, this physics
of black holes suggests that as a physical system of matter and energy
collapses down to the level of Planck units at 10-33 cm and
the amount of information potentially contained within a volume of
becomes huge—if there are indeed such mini-black hole dynamics. Bekenstein considers the amount of
information contained within 'a Planck area' which is the
square of two
Planck lengths of 10-33 cm—or 10-66 cm2.
At Planck’s level, at zero point
levels in the
quantum vacuum or aether, the information content and capacity is
huge. Bekenstein states: "The
entropy of a black hole one centimetre in diameter would be about 1066
bits, roughly equal to the thermodynamic entropy of a cube of water 10
kilometres on a side." (pp.
Bekenstein argues that there seems "to be no limits to how densely
information can be packed-and that our universe might be like a giant
hologram." In Bekenstein's
model, the more we penetrate into the heart of being, vast amounts of
information might be contained within the seeming emptiness and there
such complex inner worlds and black hole dynamics.
Black holes have both mass and rotational or spin
properties, are capable of being electrically charged, and they could
as the ultimate mini-computers, processing immense amount of
Planckian levels. Everything computes in the new science of information
including black holes.
Diverse new views of black holes suggest also that they are not such simple structures as once conceived. In string theory, they are regarded as:
… composite bodies made of multidimensional structures called branes, which arise in string theory. Information falling into the black hole is stored in waves in the branes and can eventually leak out. … Mathur … and his collaborators modelled a black hole as “a giant tangle of strings.” This “fuzzyball” acts as a repository of the information carried by things that fall into the black hole. It emits radiation that reflects this information.
Scientists are arriving at complex views of reality at zero point levels, looking at the information processor capacities of black holes and other structures at Planck’s levels.
Lee Smolin, in Three Roads to Quantum Gravity. (2001) describes the world according to the holographic model emerging in physics:
Dr. Bekenstein comments on the direction of modern physics towards finding deeper and deeper levels of structure at zero point levels:
Many physicists today consider electrons and quarks to be excitations of superstrings, which they hypothesize to be the most fundamental entities. But the vicissitudes of a century of revelations in physics warn us not to be dogmatic. There could be more levels of structure in our universe than are dreamt of in today's physics. ... the deepest level of structure I shall refer to as level X. ... (p.60)
7c. Black Holes & Alternate Space Dimensions
activities of a black hole in the interior of the anti-de Sitter space
rendered equivalent to swarms of particles on the boundary surface of
spacetime sphere. This was illustrated by
Scientific American in
2005. The black hole at the centre is
equivalent to a swarm as interacting particles on the boundary surface
Thus, quantum field theories and ideas about point particles might apply on the outer shell, but inside, superstrings and black hole physics apply. The holographic principle renders these two theories equivalent. The outer shell or surface of the sphere is compared to a two dimensional holographic plate which records or embodies processes occurring within the interior space. Bekenstein writes:
Creatures living in one of these universes would be incapable of determining if they inhabited a 5-D universe described by string theory or a 4-D one described by a quantum field theory of point particles.
Bekenstein suggests that in this case, the three dimensional physical world is projected from a flat boundary or screen, the shell of the sphere, just like a holographic image is projected out into space from a flat two dimensional holographic plate. He notes:
the three-dimensional world of ordinary
experience—the universe filled with galaxies, stars, planets, houses,
and people—is a hologram, an image of reality coded on a distant
two-dimensional surface. This new law of
physics, known as the Holographic Principle, asserts that everything
region of space can be described by bits of information restricted to
boundary. … everything inside this giant
shell is an image of microscopic bits spread over the shell. … everything taking place in the interior of
the region is a holographic image of the pixelated boundary. … the world … is pixelated, and all
information is stored on the boundary of space.
Susskind notes that of this most peculiar holographic principle: “Getting our collective head around the Holographic Principle is probably the biggest challenge that we physicists have had since the discovery of Quantum Mechanics.” (p. 305)
On the surface of the sphere, quantum theories and point particle analysis applies, but these reflect an even deeper metaphysics of membranes and strings, matrices and spin networks in higher dimensional space. Finally, at the centre of the holographic system is a black hole information processor in this alternate space dimension. This is analogous to how Blavatsky depicts material/energetic processes as based upon zero point foundations—‘holes dug in Space’—established within an underlying seven skinned Eternal Parent Space.
Of course, Bekenstein and
Susskind do not consider that such a model might be applicable to human
beings—as their focus is on the black holes, information theory and the
holographic principle within physics. It
is not immediately evident how one might jump from the levels of
units and elementary quanta in physics to the dimensions of human
existence. However, the mystical
idea—that the microcosm embodies the nature of the macrocosm—suggests
rationale for applying these concepts to the inner cosmos of
consciousness. These concepts are all
in light of Blavatsky’s description of seven such ‘holes dug in space’
means by which the Gods and other invisible powers ‘clothe themselves
7d. The Illusion of Gravity
A holographic view of physics offers an alternative perspective on the nature of ‘gravity.’ In a Scientific American article on The Illusion of Gravity, J. Maldacena (November, 2005) explains:
Maldacena describes a quantum theory of gravity as the “holy grail for a certain breed of physicist” and explains that string theorists have developed such a “complete, logically consistent, quantum description of gravity in what are called negatively curved spacetimes—the first such description ever developed. For these spacetimes, holographic theories appear to be true.” (p.59)
The anti-de Sitter space is the simplest of such negatively curved spaces. They are neither expanding nor contracting, but look the same at all times. Maldacena explains the equivalency of the physics of these alternative dimensions in the interior of the sphere to those upon its boundary:
… the boundary of four-dimensional anti-de Sitter space at any moment in time is a sphere. This boundary is where the hologram of the holographic theory lies. Simply stated, the idea is as follows: a quantum gravity theory in the interior of an anti-de Sitter spacetime is completely equivalent to an ordinary quantum particle theory living on the boundary. If true, this equivalence means that we can use a quantum particle theory (which is relatively well understood) to define a quantum gravity theory (which is not). (2005, p. 61)
which can be accommodated within string/M-theory in the interior of the
can be unified with the particle theories which apply on the
boundary on the circumference of the sphere.
In reference to the
‘illusion of gravity,’ Maldacena explains:
According to this formulation, “gravity operates in the higher-dimensional space.” This is in accord with H. P. Blavatsky who argued that the underlying causes of gravity lay within the higher seven dimensional Eternal Parent Space and within the ethers of the Solar system—the electromagnetic ocean of life. The views of holographic physics and higher space dimensions illustrate the types of dynamics suggested by Blavatsky. Gravity is not simply due to non-sentient physical mass but has an underlying metaphysical nature, as all things adhere within the Aether of Spaces through zero point dynamics.
physics, the holographic
principle is a primary contender for the ultimate theory of
everything—incorporating gravity with quantum theory.
Gravity is incorporated within the alternate
spacetime within superstring/M-theory (and black holes physics), while
theory (involving the triune electro-weak and strong forces) applies on
flat holographic boundary. Although
there are many unresolved issues and problems to be faced in
paradigm, it is a rich alternative model of how lower dimensional
an outward form or manifestation of a higher dimensional physics in an
alternative Space dimension. This is the
basic premise of The Secret Doctrine with its zero point ‘holes
space’ as being the foundations for the laws of nature.
It certainly seems that it is a strange universe we live in, wherein such vast amounts of information might be available at sub-atomic or zero point levels, which might surround a mini-black hole, or spinning ‘holes dug in space.’ Further, there exists an alternative higher dimensional Space, whether or a 5-dimensional anti-de Sitter space—or some other formulation, such as a 7 dimensional Eternal Parent Space. This is exactly what Blavatsky was attempting to articulate, that the laws of physics evident within the material world, were really the end products of a higher dimensional physics in an underlying hyperspace and this includes gravity.
The holographic paradigm thus combines string theory and M-theory in higher dimensions which can incorporate gravity with quantum theory depicting particle interactions. Of course, there are many enigmas and uncertainties about these issues but scientists are certainly arriving at complex worlds underlying familiar reality. The authors of these articles do not really elaborate upon the implications and applications of their theories as they might apply to understanding our familiar reality—but illustrations using human examples are often used to depict the themes.
within the interior of this realm of the anti-de Sitter space has other
‘strange properties’ according to Maldacena.
Physics in anti-de Sitter space has some strange properties. If you were freely floating anywhere in anti-de Sitter space, you would feel as though you were at the bottom of a gravitational well. Any object that you threw out would come back like a boomerang. Surprisingly, the time required for an object to come back would be independent of how hard you threw it. The difference would just be that the harder you threw it, the farther away it would get on its round-trip back to you. If you sent a flash of light, which consists of photons moving at the maximum possible speed (the speed of light), it would actually reach infinity and come back to you, all in a finite amount of time. This can happen because an object experiences a kind of time contraction of ever greater magnitude as it gets farther from you. (Scientific American, Nov. 2005, pp. 60-61)
Within the anti-de Sitter space, the person is at the centre of a gravitational well and anything thrown out eventually returns to the source within a finite period of time. The negative space-time curvature in the anti-de Sitter space creates a gravitational field that pulls objects to the center, whether or not there is anything there. If a mass is displaced towards the boundary, it is then pulled back.
Certainly, if the outward physics on the holographic boundary reflects that of the hidden inner metaphysics, then we would predict that any effects produced in the physical world would similarly return to their source, just as must occur within the interior space. As above, so below: This might indeed lead us to hypothesize that the universe similarly will follow this boomerang principle and return to its source or gravitational well. This same logic might actually support another fundamental teaching of The Secret Doctrine, that of the law of Karma. Karma is just such an inevitable cosmic law, whereby the results of actions and inactions come back upon us. It is only a matter of time.
All of these
concepts from modern holographic theory are helpful in trying to
Blavatsky’s archaic teachings about invisible zero point centres,
circumgyrating holes dug in an Eternal Parent Space, information
zero point levels and the principle of Karma as an intrinsic cosmic
law, a metaphysical
principle of higher dimensions.
