Is our brain a holographic computer ?
I would ask what definition you are using but what would be the point?
Given that brain cells and nerve cells are generally not coloured, there is no way for them to interact with visible light.To do so would require a breach of the conservation of energy.Also, as far as I'm aware, there is no evidence for any mammal producing bioluminescence.So, in summary, we don't emit light and we don't absorb it, so we can't be using it as a signalling mechanism (without the use of technology).
Biological tissues typically produce an observed radiant emittance in the visible and ultraviolet frequencies ranging from 10−17 to 10−23 W/cm2 (approx 1-1000 photons/cm2/second). This low level of light has a much weaker intensity than the visible light produced by bioluminescence, but biophotons are detectable above the background of thermal radiation that is emitted by tissues at their normal temperature.
It is well known that brain neurons can emit photons...See https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5098150/

What about infrared?
Everything emits photons.
Photons in the brain could serve as ideal candidates for information transfer. They travel tens of millions of times faster than a typical electrical neural signal and are not prone to thermal noise at body temperature owing to their relatively high energies. It is conceivable that evolution might have found a way to utilize these precious high-energy resources for information transfer, even if they were just the by–products of metabolism to begin with. Most of the required molecular machinery seems to exist in living cells such as neurons.
our brains being a biomass that we could assume is interwoven with photons

I can not fathom out why you keep saying my posts are meaningless Mr Bored Chemist,
