… The notion of a holographic universe is particularly appealing to physicists, since it would reconcile irregularities with Einstein’s theory of general relativity and quantum mechanics. While Einstein’s findings do a fine job of explaining large-scale aspects of the universe, they break down at the quantum level. The holographic principle comes out of string theory framework, but instead of trying to establish higher dimensional levels like M-theory (which presupposes 11 dimensions), it relies on just two.

If your brain is melting a bit, I don’t blame you. On a fundamental level, proving that the holographic universe won’t change our lives much. But it could lend a bit more weight to slightly more „out there“ ideas like David Bohm’s holonomic brain theory, which suggests that the brain operates much like a hologram. …
