Holographic Universe

00156eAuthor Michael Talbot was interested in parallels between mysticism and physics and wrote several books in this field. Over the last decades scientists developed a holographic model of reality which can explain several inexplicable phenomena. Michael presents this model and also shares personal experiences which formed his worldview in this respect and inspired him to write a best-selling book on the topic.

Many PSI phenomena turn out to be explicable by rather mundane explanations. But once in a while you stumble upon something that simply can not be explained away as an optical illusion. The "Oregon Vortex" seems to be one of those exceptions.

The Oregon Vortex is located close to Gold Hill in the state of Oregon (USA). It has a diameter of about 55 meters and combines a couple of unusual phenomena in one location one of which is the "Mystery House" which - due to its sloped construction at least includes elements of optical illusion. This is the reason why this article only focuses on one particular phenomena of the Oregon Vortex, that is really strange :

At the Oregon Vortex several level rods have been put up with a distance of about 3 meters between them. One of the level rods is within the vortex the other outside of it. The claim is, that people who stand next to the left rod appear taller than when they stand in front of the right rod. There seems to be more to this effect than just an optical illusion since it has been subject to scientific measurements (see further down in this article). As a starter, take a look at this 50 second video clip :

This video is just one of many. When looking for the Oregon Vortex on Youtube, you mainly find information about the Mystery House, but there are also quite a few videos which deal with the effect of changing heights of people. Here is a second video, taken from a bit further away to view the phenomenon from a different perspective :


A group that tries to expose paranormal phenomena as fake visited the site to do research on it. They came to the conclusion that most of the Mystery House anomalies are optical illusions but they could not explain the height change. While a precise measurement of at least one specific ground plate revealed a 2 degree incline, this could not explain a 16 degree incline when using a stick between the heads of two persons and switching sides. Measurements of the magnetic field in the vortex area show anomalies which could only be explained with a massive magnet being burried under ground. Another experiment involved horses, as the "legend" tells that already hundreds of years ago Indian natives discovered that their horses would deny riding through the vortex. This experiment was repeated with trained horses and they also refused to ride along the path into the vortex but simply turned around. This is also the reason why visitors with pets are not allowed to bring them along with them into the vortex area, because animals just tend to freak out when approaching the vortex. What shall we make of this ?


Artificial lines to measure the visible angle :


Explanation on angular measurement : Two still photos of the video were taken. The yellow line marks the position of the stick when the man is in the left position. It was copied 1:1 into the second picture where the woman is standing in the left position. The bluish line marks the ground plate, it was copied, colored in green and moved parallely upwards until it met with the yellow line in order to measure the angle of the stick compared to the ground plate. The stick which is visible in this picture is parallel to the green line, so the angle between the stick and the ground plate is zero. The angle between the green and the yellow line is 12 degrees. After doing the measurements the thickness of the lines was increased to make them better visible on the picture.

A 3-minute documentary from the 90's about the phenomenon, which also mentions the mystery house and the history of the "Oregon Vortex" :



Another really cool video about the Oregon Vortex was recently released. It is rather lengthy but one scene is recommended to take a look at as is shows a really weird demonstration of a floating magnet at the Oregon Vortex (starts at 25:40 of the video). The scene only lasts less than a minute.

Also the ground plate used in this demonstration being level is shown with a water-level (at 37:00) followed by a demonstration that the two poles are of equal height and then doing the usual trading places demonstration shown in the other videos. By the way the entire tour through the Vortex is done by the long-term owner Maria Cooper. Most of the other demonstrations in this video are not that interesting but at least check out the segment at 25:40 it is really weird :
