I think I'm understanding you up to here. The basic concept being that
signaling through networks of neurons is a continuous phenomenon, if I'm right.
Signals passing through neuronal pathways with positive or negative feedback
loops, lateral inhibition, or some other interconnecting architecture can thus
be viewed as waves like EEG. If I'm wrong please correct me.

Here I'm lost. I don't understand the what is meant by holographic in this
context. I'm also alittle cloudy on the interference concept as I have viewed
neurons as stochastic and wave interference as occuring in a passive continuous
(nonstochastic) medium. Could you elaborate?
