Pribram's work comes for over 20 years ago, and it doesn't seem to be a hot 
topic of neuroscience. It may be fact but it has not seemed to illuminate any 
one else studying the brain. I am interested in this sort of thing, as you 
apparently are. Non-traditionalist hypotheses about consciousness need 
exploration. There is also, Hameroff, Tuczyinski's, and Penrose's theory of the 
mind, is certainly worth considering. One can come up with variations on their 
theme. A holographic theory of the universe, may also have purchase, with 
consciousness, via entanglement-or it may all prove useless. But, nothing 
ventured, nothing gained.

Subject: Karl Pribram: the holographic brain


I once have heard that Karl Pribram has a theory of a holographic brain 
and decided to read his latest book

Karl H Pribram, The Form Within: My Point of View.

Unfortunately I was unable to understand his theory, as for me the book 
was too eclectic. One quote that I like is below, but I have failed to 
understand how he has come exactly to such a conclusion based on 
neuroscience.

Does someone here know his theory? Is there somewhere a better 
description of his ideas as in his book?

p. 531-532 “Most important, ‘in ancient times’ we navigated our world 
and discovered experiences in ourselves that reflected what we observed 
in the world: We woke at sunrise and slept at sunset. We were intimately 
connected at every level with the cycles of nature. This process was 
disrupted by the Copernican revolution, by its aftermaths in biology – 
even by our explorations of quantum physics and cosmology – and in the 
resulting interpretations of our personal experiences. But today, once 
again, we have rediscovered that it is we who observe our cosmos and are 
aware that we observe; that it is we who observe our navigation of our 
world and observe our own observations.”
