I was thinking about this today - what I didn't like about Hubbard's GE theory is that you would need 6 billion of them for the human bodies alone. To me it makes more sense, that there is a parallel universe, or perhaps there is an aspect or dimension to this universe that is slightly out of phase, vibration wise. We wouldn't perceive it, but the life in the cells would respond to it.
There would only have to be one template for a human body, it would contain the development stages through out the life span of the organism. If it were holographic in nature, any body that has the proper DNA and the 2 parent cells dividing could follow the template, getting "stylistic" clues from the DNA ( skin color, size of body parts, eye color etc. ) and the cells start following the pattern of the template and begin assuming the identities of the different organs and growing into them as the body grows.
So any body on this planet would conform to the holographic template. You could expect a different template near Triton (or which ever of Saturn's moons they feel may have methane based life forms) that life follows there.
There are many things in life that can not be explained very well except via the holographic concept. For my personal observations, I have seen RIs (reliable Items - parts of the GPM), gold balls ( anchor points) and have looked through my body and seen the greyish bones with in. None of these things were perceived with my eyes, rather my spirit observed them. I have had many prescient moments, from catching things that fell slightly after I (reactively? Anticipatory?) positioned my hand in the right place, avoding (or not) an accident, etc. And these lead me to believe there is something more than we can readily observe. Perhaps it is composed of the dark energy or matter that is allegedly there.
So it makes my wonder, we know so little of how life works, that we can't replicate all that a cockroach does with modern computer technology, that perhaps there is a holographic template which life follows. Why does a cat die after 18 years give or take? Or a tortoise last 100+? So many things in life seem to be marching to a program. Perhaps there is one? Seldom do you see a 200 year old house cat - it all sticks to the tune being played.
Think of a computer - the machine could be analogous to the material universe, the operating system analogous to life's template, all of the programs, (word processes, spread sheets, etc. are like the body types - lion, cheetah, duck, people) and what we see on the screen is the world we see with our eyes. In other words, there is a lot going on behind the scene we are not aware of, any more than your dog is aware of the internet.
Anyway, that is my idea - what do you think of it?
