RE: Do We Live In a 3-D World... or a 2-D Hologram

There is an amazing evolution occuring in modern psychics with implications for phenomena that were once considered mystical and mysterious. For some interesting speculations about this subject see:
The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot. Published by HarperPerennial, A Division of HarperCollins/Publishers, 1991, HarperCollins Publishers, Inc., 10 East 53rd Street, New York, NY 10022; (212) 207-7528, Fax: (212) 207-7222

The introductory page says, "The new data are of such far-reaching relevance that they could revolutionize our understanding of the human psyche, of psychotherapy and of the therapeutic proces. Some of the observations transcend in their significance the framework of psychology and psychiatry and represent a serious challenge to the curent Newtonian-Cartesian paradigm of Western science. They could change drastically our image of human nature, of culture and history, and of reality." --Attributed to Dr. Stanislav Grof on holographic phenomena in "The Adventure of Self-Discovery"

Crediting both David Bohm, a quantum physist and protege of Albert Einstein, and Karl Pribram, a Stanford University neuropsychologist, as the main architects of the idea of a holographic universe, the author (Talbot) goes on in the book's preface to say, "Put another way, there is evidence to suggest that our world and everything in it--from snowflakes to maple trees to falling stars and spinning electrons--are also only ghostly images, projections from a level of reality so beyond our own it is literally beyond both space and time." (Pg.1)

...all of this almost a quarter century ago!

So how does this effect string theory and/or the implication we live in as many as 11 dimensions all of the others rolled up into areas so small we can't perceive? Seems like we are going from several to 2...What gives?
