Nonlocal memory of living systems 

lucidmemoriesAlthough the biological systems maintain their individual features during their whole life, they permanently reorganize certain molecular and cellular structures while adapting to ever-changing environment. Hence, any living system (a complex adaptive system) must create some bio-repositories of information.

Adaptation is unimaginable without data storage: ambient information has to be perceived, processed and saved in a retrievable form. It is known that even the most primitive, single-celled organisms can employ a form of memory to solve complex tasks [publication in National Geographic] or be trained to exhibit an avoidance response to electric shock [Animal Learning and Behavior]. If even such primitive life-forms are capable of organizing their personal "diaries" of experience, then it is probable that each cell of multi-cellular organism can serve as a storehouse of decentralized information as well. The holography-based biological mechanisms might explain such non-local memory distributed within the whole living system. 

Our reasoning is simple: the holography-based biological mechanisms ("Bio-internet") are capable of reorganizing some fragile molecular/cellular processes in response to particular perturbations and waveforms, so any significant alteration of a holo-system can, in principle, be remembered in the form of new molecular constellations and relationships. The holographic recordings would be stored in every and all parts of the body thus increasing the complexity of its molecular architecture. Such a collective and decentralized memory is resilient, non-erasable and non-local. It can be updated or retrieved using any small part of a system. Besides, in a dynamic system with decentralized associative memory it would be possible to keep information on the time-dependent sequences of multiple events/scenes, like in video-recordings.

Associative holo-memory. The stored data is read through the reproduction of the same reference information used to create the holographic record: the higher the coincidence between previously experienced and new states of the body, the better the process of “data-recollection” (aka the reconstruction of previously saved bio-holograms). If our hypothesis is correct, then any adaptive system permanently records and archives information within the whole body.

Actually, all organisms have to create a kind of a holographic diary about their life-long experience. The holographic information is stored in the form of new resonances and new “fringes”/knots (immobilized particles) that emerge in response to certain perturbations of a system state. Any previously inexperienced state of a system would be fixed within the whole body as new molecular constellations and higher-order structures. The number and complexity of interference fringes (and corresponding wrinkles on the body surface) grows during whole life, since an adaptive system that functions in ever-changing environment must remember all individual states and all encountered events. Hence, it spends more and more energy on the maintenance of new molecular structures that keep the system-memory as fixed holograms of permanently increasing complexity.

Nature "prefers" the holography-based mechanisms of communication and data storage because only these wave-associated processes can ensure emergence and unstoppable evolution of autonomously functioning systems. Bioholographic processes are necessary for optimal communication between all functional elements of an individual system and they also serve as a kind of decentralized memory necessary for its adaptive functioning and development. 

Unfortunately, the life-giving but energy-consuming holographic "diary" is the main cause of our aging and finite life-cycles. The capacity of bioholographic data storage  is enormous, but the energy pool necessary for data recording and processing is limited. A kind of “gravitational” collapse takes place when available kinetic energy of a system falls below the threshold necessary to maintain the overloaded system-memory and corresponding metabolic processes of permanently increasing complexity.

We believe that humankind, as well as all other adaptive systems of natural origin, can exist only thanks to real-time holographic "read-write" processes that are inseparable from their molecular architecture. 

Since the most valuable for any hypothesis is its ability to predict experimental results, we decided to sacrifice several frogs in order to prove that life and bio-holography are two inseparable concepts. If we are right, then the holographic imaging of internal tissues and organs would not be possible after death. Figure 1 shows the BHT-grams of the frogs' hind legs recorded before and during dissection of their thoraxes and hearts. The procedure of dissection has been conducted within 30 seconds of recording. Upper frames clearly demonstrate significant enhancement of the radiation in response to the damage of body distant area (alive frog). Frames in the bottom row (dead frog) show the absence of any change in radiation after the animal's death (Lidocaine was injected into the live frog's heart several minutes before the experiment).

Thus, the integrity and nonlocality of information are the most important characteristics of life. Such a unity, where all functional modules be it an organ, a cell or a metabolic circuit are interdependent and inter-controlled, can be achieved only if a system emerges and develops using the holography-based mechanisms of "telecommunication". 

It is occasionally claimed that any complex adaptive system has individual strategy based on particular goals and predictions of the future. Some scholars refer to goal-directed units as basic agents of adaptive systems. This opinion contradicts a widely accepted point of view that behavior of a complex dynamic system is not predicted by the behavior of its parts. Obviously, neither a system (in its general sense) nor its parts can have any particular “goals”. However, any mature adaptive system has a kind of a free will in the sense that even the most primitive organisms are able to choose particular scenario(s) drawing on their former experience: since a sequence of numerous successive holographic recordings can be updated/retrieved almost instantly, an adaptive system may have some time to change its behavior before undesirable events cross the brink of unavoidability. Such a capability of complex adaptive systems to foresee the final results of particular states (premonition) has nothing to do with paranormal phenomena.
