In terms of an approach that uses Fourier holography to construct exclusionary logics, an implementation of a cognitive mechanism is proposed for bringing new information into accordance with an internal pictorial world. It is shown that there is a phenomenon of oscillations between stereotypes recorded on the hologram and new information, caused by the resonance architecture of the holographic setup. This phenomenon is discussed as a particular case of the manifestation of the primacy of the stability of the internal world-picture that characterizes ordinary thinking. The factors are determined that influence the dynamics of the holographic system and the characteristics of a stable decision, analogous to the formation of tolerance. For holographic implementation of an analog of the scientific form of the world-view, a mechanism is needed that establishes an iterative process—for example, self-reflection. The results of numerical modelling are presented.
