Historically, models of dreams and dreaming have been situated either in the physiology or the psychology of the dreamer, that is, the physical or psychological state of the dreamer is generally thought to be the ground from which dream imagery springs, either arbitrarily or by design. Few models, however, take contemporary models of the universe into account in describing the function and process of dreaming. This model of dreaming, which I will call the holo-net model, attempts to situate the dreamer and her dreams within Bohm and Pribram’s holographical models of the universe and brain.
The holo-net model is rooted in the connectionist net theory, but differs from it in three essential ways: 1. the network of available imagery extends into the holomovement of the universal hologram, 2. dream images are highly individual, and 3. there is two-way communication between the consciousness of the dreamer and the holomovement.
