Light comming out from object have all the information pertaining to that object. This is the feature exploited in holography, and even photography. When light diverging from an object is, for instance, reconverged by a lense, it recreates the shape of the object. But as I have briefly explained somewhere else, this 'information pertaining to shape' can be generalized to other information, eg charge, mass, consciousness etc! This will create more than 'image', but a real 'light body'. In case of a living thing, this will be another body capable of taking the consciousness of an individual. Yes, even capable of immortality!
There are two ways a living 'holograhic body' can be made. One is what I may call it 'homeomorphic body'. The other is the usual body, that is a perfect copy of the body. Like we have seen, in 'photography', a copy of a body is created whenever light from the body is converged. But this is the case if the light had diverged. However, it is never the case that the whole of light emanating from the body diverges. some tiny intensity, often unseen by the naked eye, remains collimated. Since it is not diverged, this portion of light does not need any lense in order to recreate the image of the body. As this light comes out of the body, it creates countless copies of the body. These copies are more than images.They are perfect replicas of the body and can therefore take the consciousness of the body. I have explained how this can come about in a previous blog post.
In the 'homeormorphic body', the analogy of the cup and the torus is used. We say that a torus is 'the same thing as a cup' in the sense that one can mould one into the other without cutting the material. It better words, the changes that happen when you change a toroidal object into a cup-like one does not change how different portions of the object are interconnected with each othe. If you had made a flexible mother board on the surface of a torus, your computer would still function if you mold the mother board into a cup, simply because as an electronic device, all what is needed is to preserve interconnections, not the shape. likewise, when we think of 'light body' that is capable of taking consciousness we should stop at thinking of how the portions remains as connected as the usual body. This is to say a perfectly similar clone is not necessary. A perfectly similar connections is. This is simply because our brains etc are electric in nature.
All this means that it is easier for the body to, naturally, form a 'replica' body made of light by emitting photons. Infact this may be what happens in what we call 'bio-photons'. Two photons emanating from the same place, may maintain their interconnectedness through 'quantum entanglement'. So the maintain, to some extend, the notion that 'they are light from the same point', without any need for a lense (or an hologram' to converge them to a single point. It is communication not nearness that matters in retaining consciousness, just like in electronic, it doesn't matter how far a component is located on the motherboard, provided that it is connected to the other.
