The Holographic Universe

I’m sorry I haven’t had time to post anything new this week.  The past two weeks, I’ve been totally immersed in my studies, preparing for exams.  I will share a little something though.

Since my last post dealt with how the laws of physics are embedded in the fabric of space-time, I wanted to also talk about the holographic principle.  Many physicists are coming to the conclusion that our universe is a projection from a two-dimensional surface found on the edges of a black hole.  This video describes it all, so you can just watch it if you’re interested.

We’re all “moving” through this eternal “loaf” of space-time which includes all of the past and all of the future.  It all exists.  It’s always existed and always will exist.  You and I are eternal.  This moment is eternal.  Our world is eternal.  Nothing is ever destroyed or gone.  It’s all pre-written on these eternal holograms which we as conscious beings somehow navigate through.  I’ve always wanted to help describe these aspects of general relativity to people, but couldn’t think of a way to do it.  Thankfully this TV program does it perfectly with all these awesome 3D graphics.  Check out this next video!

What puzzles me is how there’s so many “extra” frames written into this hologram of space-time which I don’t experience.  I talked about this is in a recent post, so I won’t go into it again.  Consciousness comes in and out, in and out, as it makes it way through this eternal loaf which has so much information, I can’t seem to experience it all.  Not at once anyway.

I feel quite certain I’ll spend the rest of my life thinking about these things.  If “life” will just leave me alone, I can get back to my research into general relativity and quantum field theory, learning more about all of this stuff.

  1. Remembering about all these grants and publish or perish thing makes me doubt this very much. That’s the main reason I don’t even consider majoring in physics without being financially secure.
