The Universe – A Vast Complex Hologram

Holographic--Universe-main-4-postThe universe might just be one “vast and complex hologram” and our vision of life as being in 3D may just be an illusion.

This astonishing find according to the astrophysicists from the University of Southampton, who worked in conjunction with other researchers from Canada and Italy.

Professor Kostas Skenderis, Director of STAG within Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton, says he now believes we live in a holographic universe.

The mathematical scientist said the theory could be compared to watching a 3D film. He explained we see 3D pictures as having height, width, and depth when we are only looking at a flat 2D screen. The only difference is that we can touch objects and we view the “projection” as “real” and substantial.

Scientists tested this astonishing new theory by looking at irregularities in the white noise left over from the Big Bang. After some astronomical calculations their equation results showed that if the universe was a hologram the irregularities would make sense.

“I do think we live in a hologram…and I think if we move forward in time, say 50 years from now, then physics will look very different in the same way that physics from the 20th century now looks different,” said Professor Skenderis.

“Holography is a huge leap forward in the way we think about the structure and creation of the universe,” Professor Skenderis adds. “Einstein’s theory of general relativity explains almost everything large scale in the universe very well, but starts to unravel when examining its origins and mechanisms at quantum level.”

Professor Skenderis continues, “Some believe the concept of a holographic universe has the potential to reconcile the two. I hope our research takes us another step towards this.”

The Holographic principle theory originated from the 1990s and suggests that gravity comes from thin vibrating strings which take place in a simpler flatter cosmos. The theory claims that this two dimensional surface has all the information needed to create the illusion of a three-dimensional object and the theory also suggests that objects that get eaten by a black hole would be transformed back into this two-dimensional surface. Then it would be contained like a piece of computer memory contained in a computer chip.

Professor Skenderis: “Holography is a huge leap forward in the way we think about the structure and creation of the universe.”

Is The Virtual Reality Projector In Another Dimension?

One of the theoretical physicists also in the debate is James Gates, Ph.D., Professor of Theoretical Physics, who researches supersymmetry and superstring theory at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Prof. Gates asked: “How could we discover whether we live inside a Matrix?” He suggested: “Try to detect the presence of codes in the laws that describe physics.”

When he looked, Dr. Gates was surprised to find in supersymmetry equations – what are called “doubly-even self-dual linear binary error-correcting block codes.”

Error-correcting codes in supersymmetry equations have been found in quarks and leptons. They are embedded in the essence of our reality which makes this world where everything human beings experience a product of a virtual-reality-generating computer network. The key to this is that the projector of the virtual reality has to be in another dimension per Alan Guth, Ph.D., Professor of Physics, MIT. There has to be an infinite number of universes and these universes have to be embedded within each other in some way.

So if the projector of the virtual reality is in another dimension and the projection involves holographic projection, that would explain the merger of the two concepts of the holographic universe and the discovery of what seems to be error correction codes in the laws that describe physics because what is being projected is holographic from the macro down to the micro.

However, per Thomas Campbell, M. S., Applied Physicist and author of My Big T.O.E., “The simulated universe doesn’t even need the holographic concept to make any connections. It simply computes a data stream. The data stream is sent to a player. The player interprets that data stream as the virtual reality. Everything takes place in consciousness. Consciousness is the computer. Consciousness is the player. That’s what’s going on. The whole game is played consciousness.”

Thomas Campbell continues:

“Holography is just an additional complication that’s unnecessary to get to the answer. Although it is a popular metaphor partly because in a hologram every piece of it has the information of the whole. But that’s also true in fractals.

“Every piece of fractal has all the information of the whole. In this system of information, a fractal pattern is a pattern of information. That’s why a computer can compute fractals. Because it’s just information. And the fractal has that same attribute of all the information, part of the whole, so you end up with a process fractal that creates everything.

“And there are also places like the places you get to in out of body that have very loose rule sets as opposed to physical universes which tend to have more complicated rule sets, more detailed, tighter rule sets. So it’s all just virtual realities.

“When your avatar dies, the consciousness doesn’t die. You know, just like when your elf dies, the player doesn’t die. So the consciousness doesn’t die. The consciousness goes on and gets back in the game again.

“When it does that, that consciousness ends up in a different virtual reality than this virtual reality. That’s a transition virtual reality. Dreaming is another virtual reality that we experience. The dream reality isn’t any less real than this physical reality. It’s just different. It’s a different virtual reality, different rule set, different data stream.

“And one of the neat things about it is that once you understand how consciousness works, then you can turn around and derive quantum mechanics and relativity from the ground up. And the amazing thing is that when you do that, quantum mechanics and relativity now get along with each other rather than being opposed to each other, and quantum mechanics is no longer a weird science. It’s just a logical science. You can look at a quantum mechanical problem and just look at the logic of it and say what the answer is. You don’t need to do a lot of math. It’s a perfectly understandable thing.”
