Higgs, Peter W.
Higgs Field, in particle-physics, an energy field or fields in what would otherwise be considered a perfect vacuum. Higgs fields are the theoretical construct of a British physicist, Peter W. Higgs, who developed them to help account for the particles known as massive gauge bosons without breaking the symmetry.laws of modern physics.

Support for the concept has been found in recent particle discoveries." ... Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia

hologram.noun
is a three dimensional projection of an object; it's a sculpture made out of light; look at your credit card, go to Disneyland where you'll see people dancing in front of you, but they are only just projections; memory also can be a holographic object, where the whole of it is in every bit of it; example - you take a laser beam and put it through a machine called a beam splitter, split it into two, here one is called the object beam and the other is the reference beam; the object beam goes at the object, it scatters; the reference beam bounces off a mirror, interferes with the object beam and creates what's called an interference pattern, you record that interference pattern over a photographic plate; if you look at that, all it looks like is a bunch of squiggles; a wide photographic plate is used and placed on the floor, you place an object standing on the plate (let's say it's a person); behind and above the object are mirrors angled to receive and reflect images generated by the dispersed energy from the split laser beam when it's passed through the object; the photographic plate on the floor records the information it receives from the mirrors; you could now break the plate into a trillion pieces and all the information would be in each piece; the images however get fuzzier the smaller they are, but they are still there; this is how each cell in your body has information in it of all other cells; it is the pattern produced on a photosensitive medium that has been exposed by what we term holography and then photographically developed; the photosensitive medium so exposed and so developed is called a hologram
