ok, so here's an idea i've been tossing around in my head for the last few weeks..
first of all, the holographic universe theory, and the readers digest version of how it actually works:
everything has a vibration (good metaphor: ripples in a pond). The universe is made up of these vibrations. Sometimes, these ripples meet each other. here's a video that goes into more detail:
So, if you watched that video, one of the main points is the fact that a hologram ( a REAL hologram) consists of two or more vibrations coming together and interfering with one another, creating an interference pattern.
So, if I exist, and I think a thought (which has a vibration), and you exist, and you think a thought (which has a different vibration), eventually those two vibrations will meet, creating an interference pattern, or a hologram.
And if I think billions of neurotic subconscious thoughts per second, then I'm creating billions of holograms, but that's a topic for some kind of psycho-therapy forum
so back to the topic..
one thing I've been noticing about tarot (and astrology) is how deceptively simple it is.. just a combination of energies. for example, the 6 of cups. combine 6 (numerology) with emotions. or the 3 of wands. combine 3 with power.
and in the motherpeace (other decks may do this too but I don't know about it), the court cards are combinations of 2 different elements. son=air, daughter=earth, priestess=water, shaman=fire. so, the son of cups is air meets water, and the shaman of wands is fire meets fire, the daughter of swords is earth meets air.
So it doesn't seem to apply to the major arcana (which seem to be a 0-21 breakdown of numerology, including the master numbers and karmic numbers), but there is still a trend.
same thing in astrology. if your sun sign is cancer, you combine those two. if your neptune sign is leo, you combine those two. if your saturn sign is scorpio, etc, etc.
so, is there a connection? holograms caused by interference patterns- two energies coming together to describe an aspect of an entity or situation.
