more properly termed a 'holofractal graph' which is a three-dimensional projection of an object; invented by Dennis Gabor; a hologram is 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."...the hologram of human memory is situated in the vacuum field and exists in the space after the human death."....A.K. Maneev, Movement, contradiction, development. Minsk, Technique and Science, 1982; even light is a construct within this hologram. It's the invisible process that transfers energy into physical manifestation.

Example of making a hologram: 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 light; the reference beam bounces off a mirror, interferes with the object beam light scattering 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; making one requires a wide photographic plate placed on the floor and then you place an object standing on the plate (let's say it's a person or a turtle); 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 onto 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
holography.noun
a method of producing a three-dimensional image of an object by recording on a photographic plate or film the pattern of interference formed by a split laser beam and then illuminating the pattern either with a laser or with ordinary light
holographic also holographical.adjective

Herodias, the daughter of Aristobulus and Bernice. Herodias had previously been married to Philip, but had deserted him for his brother Herod Antipas the tetrarch. This Herod was reproved by John the Baptist, as the Old Testament Mosaic Law was still in place at this time (Leviticus 18:16-20; 20:21) and this Herod, therefore, to please Herodias, bound John and cast him into prison. Matthew 14:5 tells us that he would even then have put John to death, but "feared the multitude" which regarded John as a prophet. Mark 6:17-28 relates it was Herodias and her corrupt mother who especially desired the death of John, but that she was withstood by Herod whose conscience was perhaps not altogether dead, but mostly is thought that this was because he feared any reaction from the people who highly regarded John. At Herodís birthday feast, Herodias induced her daughter Salome, whose dancing had so charmed the tetrarch, to ask as her reward the head of John the Baptist on a charger. This was given her and she then brought it to her mother. For more see 'Family of Herod' in Concise Bible Dictionary
