Our universe could well be a hologram according to new research from Japanese physicists.

 

Researchers in Japan have provided some clear evidence that the universe may be a hologram.

According to nature magazine there is now "compelling" evidence that the universe as we know it is in fact a projection from a lower-dimensional universe.
The theory can be explained in simple terms as akin to a hologram on a credit card. Professor Kostas Skenderis at the University of Southampton explained the concept earlier this year.
He said: "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, but now it is the entire Universe that is encoded in such a fashion."
The Japanese researchers formed two calculations; one showed the internal energy of a black hole and other properties connected with it.
 
The other calculated the internal energy of the lower-dimensional cosmos. Both calculations matched.
According to Leonard Susskind, a theoretical physicist at Stanford University in California, it was a correct calculation.
He said: "They have numerically confirmed, perhaps for the first time, something we were fairly sure had to be true, but was still a conjecture — namely that the thermodynamics of certain black holes can be reproduced from a lower-dimensional universe."
It was theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena who, in 1997, first proposed that the hologram theory could work with conventional physics.
Maldacena proposed that the universe was comprised of infinitesimally thin, vibrating strings from which gravity arises.
But, he said, the world of strings would be merely a hologram projected from a lower dimensional universe.
The real action would play out in a simpler, flatter cosmos where there is no gravity.
The new research, carried out by Yoshifumi Hyakutake of Ibaraki University in Japan and his colleagues, indicates that Maldacena's ideas could be true.
While neither of the model universes explored by the Japanese team resembles our own, the numerical proof that these two seemingly disparate worlds are actually identical could link our universe to a lower-dimensional universe

Impossible.  You are all just a dream of mine.  You do not exist except when I think about you.  I AM

well i know that when i'm tilted at different angles light reflects off my forehead in funny ways.

I was just watching something the other day about this theory.

 

It's weird how things run like that.

This is all just a grand experiment that failed

and it is almost ready for a reboot

But what about the mice?

They're demanding their money back in full....
