2,814. The Holographic Principle: which says that all three dimensional objects can be encoded in only two dimensions. (Universe & Hologram & Reality & Mathematics & Theory & Dimension) Horizon: What is Reality? 2011
2,815. But Lenny [Susskind] didn’t stop there. He and other physicists made a truly shocking leap of the imagination: they asked what if the whole of reality is a hologram, projected from our own Event Horizon, the far edges of the universe. (Universe & Hologram & Reality & Mathematics & Theory) ibid.
3,309. Lenny [Susskind] realised that if black holes were like holograms, then there is only one place where their information can be stored: the Event Horizon. Which would mean it would never fall in, and it would never be destroyed. (Black Hole & Information & Hologram) ibid.
2,816. It seems utterly bizarre that the ultimate nature of reality might be holographic. That at the edge of our universe there might be a shimmering sheet of information that describes the entire universe within ... We are about to put this theory to the test. (Universe & Hologram & Reality & Mathematics & Theory) ibid.
2,817. If Max [Tegmark] is right, Maths isn’t a language we’ve invented, but a deep structure we are gradually uncovering like archaeologists. An abstract unchanging entity that has no beginning and no end. As we peel back the layers we are discovering the code. Strange as it seems it’s a comforting theory because if the reality is a mathematical object, understanding it might be within our reach. (Universe & Hologram & Reality & Mathematics & Theory) ibid.
2,818. These two grand visions of Reality – the mathematical structure and the cosmic hologram represent theoretical thinking at its most imaginative and beautiful. (Universe & Hologram & Reality & Mathematics & Theory) ibid.
3,286. The insight to what became known as the Holographic principle simply happened one day when I was walking in the Physics department and came upon a hologram. Well when I saw the hologram it occurred to me that there is a very big difference between a hologram and an ordinary picture ... I said jokingly maybe the Horizon of a black hole is something like a hologram. The stuff that falls into a black hole is three-dimensional; the stuff of the Horizon is two-dimensional. But maybe in some way the stuff of the Horizon is a hologram capturing the full three-dimensionality of the things that fall into the black hole. (Black Hole & Hologram & Reality) Professor Lenny Susskind, theoretical physicist Standford University

102,048. A UK, Canadian and Italian study has provided what researchers believe is the first observational evidence that our universe could be a vast and complex hologram.
Theoretical physicists and astrophysicists, investigating irregularities in the cosmic microwave background (the ‘afterglow’ of the Big Bang), have found there is substantial evidence supporting a holographic explanation of the universe – in fact, as much as there is for the traditional explanation of these irregularities using the theory of cosmic inflation.
The researchers, from the University of Southampton (UK), University of Waterloo (Canada), Perimeter Institute (Canada), INFN, Lecce (Italy) and the University of Salento (Italy), have published findings in the journal Physical Review Letters.
A holographic universe, an idea first suggested in the 1990s, is one where all the information, which makes up our 3D ‘reality’ (plus time) is contained in a 2D surface on its boundaries.
Professor Kostas Skenderis of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton explains: ‘Imagine that everything you see, feel and hear in three dimensions (and your perception of time) in fact emanates from a flat two-dimensional field. The idea is similar to that of ordinary holograms where a three-dimensional image is encoded in a two-dimensional surface, such as in the hologram on a credit card. However, this time, the entire universe is encoded!’ (Universe & Hologram) EurekAlert online article January 2017
