Every now and then someone spots a story so breathtaking it makes one think one is living in an episode of Star Trek, and today's story from J.G.N. is exactly that, for NASA is now claiming it "holoported" a doctor to the international space station:

NASA 'Holoported' a Doctor Onto the International Space Station

In fact, the subtitle to this article by Monisha Revisetti says exactly that: "We're living in a Star Trek episode, basically."

But wait, there's more than meets the eye here, literally:

I have a new noun for your vocabulary: Holoportation.

It's an amalgam of "hologram" and "teleportation," and though it may seem like it, it isn't just a niche sci-fi term buried somewhere in Isaac Asimov novels and Star Trek episodes.

In October, NASA used this mind-boggling, futuristic mechanism to bring NASA flight surgeon Dr. Josef Schmid onto the International Space Station while he was safely planted on our planet. No rockets necessary.


"It is a brand-new way of human exploration where our human entity is able to travel off the planet," Schmid said in a statement earlier in April. "Our physical body is not there, but our human entity absolutely is there."

The article goes on to mention that the technology has been for a while, being developed by - among others - Microsoft, but this is the first time that it has been used to "holoport" people to space. But there's still more to it:

Here's how everything went down.

Basically, high-quality 3D models of the holoporters were developed, digitally compressed, transmitted and reconstructed in the spaceborne lab -- all in real time.

Meanwhile, a mixed reality display aboard the ISS, namely Microsoft's HoloLens, allowed both the holoporters and astronauts to see, hear and interact with one another as though they were in the same physical space. Astronaut Thomas Pesquet, for instance, had a two-way conversation with Schmid and De La Pena right in the middle of the ISS despite being miles upon miles away from the holoporters.

The trio even holographically shook hands.

"We'll use this for our private medical conferences, private psychiatric conferences, private family conferences and to bring VIPs onto the space station to visit with astronauts," NASA said in a statement.

And, going forward, the agency intends to scale-up its system by adding an augmented reality function, which would give holoporters the option to really move around the space station and observe things as though they're literally there. Everything but the physical touch, you might say.

This could help with extraterrestrial telemedicine for astronauts, ISS building projects and even greatly benefit future deep space exploration. The latter bit, however, may face one major obstacle -- Earth-to-space communications typically experience up to 20-minute delays when talking to systems way (way) out into the void, NASA says. Holoportation, however, is meant to be "live," so holoporters could sort of "stay onboard" for real-time communication as demonstrated by the recent prototype delivered to the ISS.

Now we get to the high octane speculation of the day, and I am sure one of the things that immediately became apparent to you, dear reader, was the typical and shop-worn appeal to all the wonderful health benefits this will bring: "See your doctor can see you in your home without ever having to leave his office."  But pardon me for pointing this out, but it strikes me that this very same technology could be used to conjure all sorts of mischief...

... if it hasn't already. You might recall a few months ago (or has it already been a couple of years?) that there was a strange video on YouTube of the Pope on a balcony somewhere in the Vatican City, doing customary "pope things" like waving to and blessing the crowd. This done, he then turned and went through a couple of doors, but before the doors could close completely, the pope...

...well, he simply vanished, poof, all gone, which made me think at the time that if the video was genuine (a big if these days), then someone turned off the holographic equipment a bit too early...

... Or did they?

Now, while we're crawling around on the very tip of the high octane speculation twig, let's just crawl off of the end of it altogether, and imagine an even more diabolically twisted scenario: imagine coupling this "holoportation" technology to well-made computer graphics technology. Already that technology is so good it was used in the Star Wars movie, Rogue One to generate the actor Peter Cushing - long since dead - to reprise his role as Grand Moff Tarkin. So imagine you want to "keep someone around" for a while who may have already died, and have that someone "appearing" publicly. Why, just wed the computer graphic technology to the "holoportation" technology, and voila, one has a body double for every occasion, including when one may need to be in two places at once.

But of course, "they" would never use such technologies for such nefarious purposes, would they?

See you on the flip side...

    Two accounts come to mind.. First- David Hamel’s account of the off planet group that took him into the craft while his body was sitting watching the Walton’s with his wife. Second- Stem’s from Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda. The chapter is called the “saint with 2 bodies” . It was his account of experiencing an advanced yogi who has able to be in two places at once. There may be a legit science to this beyond our understanding.

      They’re showing everyone what they’ve always been – purely political.
      That’s their bottom line, political: not peace among nations – whatsoever.

    Chris White is Managing Director, Special Projects. He leads mission-oriented research and software development teams focusing on high risk problems.
    Mini bio: Chris has a background in EE, with a PhD in machine learning for speech and language from Johns Hopkins. He was a Fellow at Harvard for graph statistics and machine learning before spending time in the field. He served as chief data officer for DARPA in Afghanistan, and then as country lead with oversight of all battlefield research programs. Upon return, his DARPA programs invested hundreds of millions of dollars into open source software.
    Specialized work at Microsoft has included – Enabling Holoportation and new forms of presence with shared experiences where you can feel like you’re in the same place, now part of mixed reality in Microsoft Mesh.

    Microsoft Mesh –
    With HoloportationTM, project yourself as your most lifelike, photorealistic self in mixed reality to interact as if you are there in person.
    Going forward, focus areas include:
    Advancing interoperability and user-controlled verifiable clinical information with foundational SMART Health Card technology, starting to enable tamper-proof evidence of vaccination status and relevant healthcare procedures for hundreds of millions of people.

    Making our elections more secure and verifiable.

    Creating new sensors to change the field for deterring and discovering advanced persistent cyber threats.

    Before joining Microsoft, Chris was a Program Manager at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), where he created and managed DARPA’s leading programs XDATA, Memex, and the Open Catalog.

    As Joseph said – But of course, “they” would never use such technologies for such nefarious purposes, would they?
    The way the world is being ‘run’, would they use such technologies for such nefarious purposes? Absolutely.

      Any time we see the acronym SMART, it means something sinister. It’s popping more often I noticed.

    John Lear (RIP) thought the planes that hit the twin towers were holograms. I guess this technology has been around a long time.

    So much about tech magazine and their ability to grasp things- in other words either they are gullible morons or it is outright propaganda. Wasn’t that long ago when in experiment was prooven that it is phisical body which is engulfed and submerged in quantum like consciousness field? To understand what they brag about one need to dump all that religious mumble and critically investigate( against modern knowledge) what religious texts are talking about. Sumerian and other sources needed to be written like they were written simply because it was the most effective and efficient way to preserve pre-flood knowledge. After that cataclysm human population were forced to fight for survival, there was no time for poetry , mathematics, phisics ect it was struggle to eat. Hence religion which is tightly connected to hope which ensures information being remembered. Unfortunately after all these millennials it got distorted either by design and or passing time. Also , last year if I remember correctly there was talk about 6G networks being tested and their capabilities to transfer someone consciousness from one body to other . Makes you wonder about all these possessed , mad or acting weird people.

    • Awake on April 21, 2022 at 8:48 am

      Well said and I agree. The entire point is to transfer as many people as possible into the Metaverse and then transfer there consciousness as well. My guess is that those unfortunate souls that took / received the death vax are going to have their consciousness transferred to the Metaverse, or something like it, upon the physical death of their bodies. Hense the constant talk lately of two completely different societies developing simultaneously as one of transhumanism and one of organic humanity.

      • Jay on April 21, 2022 at 3:06 pm

        Probably not even after death , I remember one article I think in naturalnews where was talk about mRNA jabbed people after approx third shot , started to emit faint EMG field very similar to Mac address. As much as I’m sad about all these people , I’m aware that current events are a harvest and maturity exam at the same time and it’s a tough one .

    Now there was an anime series Swordart Online then there is the Star Trek Voyager series where you have a holographic doctor replaces a real doctor when the real doctor is killed in the first episode. And before that you have a conference on the Moon in Rendezvous On Rama and you have the novel The Orchid Cage where people never leave their homes addicted to playing virtual reality games.

    • Awake on April 21, 2022 at 8:53 am

      Interesting analysis, we have read some of the same books and I’m tracking very well with your references. Also Star Trek Voyager…lol.

    Beware new technology that’s going to “save lives”! I’m sure the world’s intel services could find a use or two for this… I see it as another brick in the Tower of Babel, or another weapon used in Atlantis before the ocean swallowed the place.

    What disturbs me even more is how the article highlights the proposition that “our physical body is not there, but our human entity absolutely is there.” Since when are tech magazines and flight surgeons the arbiters of what and where our “human entity” is??

  10. Robert Barricklow on April 20, 2022 at 11:47 am

    AS I was reading, I wondered,
    “Did they have a Alexander Graham Bell script planned?”.
    The 3-D part exemplifies how that technology is critical to space.
    Microsoft exemplifies how oligopolies will rule space.
    The “private” part; was the scripted version.
    Got to have all think it’s like bitcoin, free & clear.
    When, in reality, they’re NSA-like holographic eyes and ears in Space.
    And don’t think “other” players can’t hijack the show.
    VR in space, w/all the senses, including haptic touch.
    The “reality” is literally being beamed[ and into your brain?].
    To be “live”/instantaneous means using “non-local” quantum technology.

    Wickedly cool high-octane speculation Dr. Farrell.
    Now, I’m imagining a demented regime being scripted “live” at a press conference. All scripted, bot in images and voice; maybe there’s other Hollywood effects, like knocking over a microphone[a magician-trick using thin wires] – to give the hologram a physical appearance.
    This gives “doubles” a digital exponential copy ability…
    that staggers the imagination.
    That’s just the small end of the imaginary virtual, becoming holo-real.
    There’s that alien invasion; waiting for its global curtain call?

    Is he real, or is he…?
    But Wait!
    Are they real, and how many of them are there?

    Now, will a greeting be “Hello” and/or,
    You… copy?

    How far away is, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

    “high-quality 3D models of the holoporters were developed, digitally compressed, transmitted and reconstructed in the spaceborne lab”

    Smoke and mirrors. What was the state of the Dr. back at NASA? Was he lying on a table with his vital signs being monitored? Or was he wearing a suit covered in electrodes that would transmit his movements to the 3D hologram? I would bet on the latter scenario and he probably was wearing VR goggles.

    It sounds like this is 1 step beyond viewing and hearing via a video monitor. His consciousness was still on Earth and inhabiting his brain. His attention was in the ISS and he was receiving input data from the ISS but his consciousness and astral body were still present within his physical body.

    Every couple of years there is a story about a Chinese Dr. who is scheduling a head transplant surgery. But it is always cancelled and postponed for 1 or 2 years. If our consciousness is seated in the head (while we are awake in the body), then whose consciousness would emerge from a head transplant? I am assuming that once a head is removed from the body the consciousness leaves both the head and body. So with both bodies temporarily without a head, then both are without a consciousness. When the good head is reattached to a body, whose consciousness has the right to inhabit it? Would there be a battle between the consciousnesses? Or would they both abandon such a spiritual abomination?

    As a spiritual Being, I know that my reality is limited by the quantity and quality of my senses and the development of my consciousness. If I am seduced into believing that my consciousness can inhabit a digital world, then this becomes my reality. However, the metaverse, holoport or any other technological “world” are all just sophisticated versions of Plato’s cave.

      I recall hearing about heart transplant patients having new memories from whoever the heart came from.
      “The acquisition of donor personality characteristics by recipients following heart transplantation is hypothesized to occur via the transfer of cellular memory, and four types of cellular memory are presented: (1) epigenetic memory, (2) DNA memory, (3) RNA memory, and (4) protein memory.”

    I guess I am not sure why all the theatrics. Just had to drive to Houston… Sorry, I have seen too many CGI used to pretend astronauts are in space so I guess that makes me an ISS denier.

    I’m guessing that it’s a prelude to scalar telecommunications aka rather sophisticated technological form of telepathy. On this forum we did discuss many times that deep state is slowly leaking their technologies into “civilian” world and I see this one as such event. Makes one wonder about real level of their technology. Also I think that it is being used to equally brag about themselves and to frighten possible opponents.

    • Awake on April 20, 2022 at 10:22 am

      My guess is that this technology is actually very old and what they show to the normies is just to inform them that this is what we are capable of. It’s another form of disclosure that very few people would ever notice. Think freemasons and karmic disclosure due to religious requirements. They are literally showing us that some people in the world are actually holographic projections. They used a high-level doctor as their holographic projection as a demonstration to the regular folks. Those types of professionals would rarely be questioned as they interact with the general population of humanity. Think ancient AI and global mass projection of systems-based people and things. If they can have a currently malfunctioning sky simulation that includes the sun, moon and stars, then simulated people and earthly realm are also part of the game. The question is how many real people are awake enough to actually have eyes to see?

  14. KSW on April 20, 2022 at 9:38 am

    Stunning potential and it’s early days yet.

  15. Awake on April 20, 2022 at 9:16 am

    Excellent article and post Dr. JPF, has been many people’s assertion about holographic / CGI projected famous people for the last several years now. This article helps to confirm what many have intuitively noticed via cumulative data points. Now the question is, how many people and how much of the earth are actually holographic / CGI projections?? My guess is a lot more than the regular folks could easily handle.

    Captain Jack Sparrow got holoported, from siren prison at bottom of sea, undoing curse on Black Pearl.


    Hollywood is dog rolling around in dirt,
    masquerading as domestic mirth,
    in bestow of marital vows
    on faithless spouse,
    who rips man for half his worth.

    Sparrow got his compass confused,
    when he, by siren was abused,
    who claimed she was hit
    so she could split,
    his treasure falsely accused.

    Siren moved on to her next treasure,
    hunting Tesla with her pleasure,
    because pile of money
    was more honey,
    than tiny brain could measure.

        In Hindi cinema, Madhuri Dixit plays a memorable role of a housewife, who mixes up her priorities in domestic duty.

        Unselfishly, she serves others in a higher cause, and fails to understand, that she is also the other half, in duty to herself.

        When a man is holoported outside himself, he serves a greater purpose, when his genie is outside the bottle.

        The spirit is the greater man!
