Are we living in a HOLOGRAM?
Physicists believe our universe
could just be a projection of another cosmos

Daily Mail [UK], by Ellie Zolfagharifard

Original Article

The universe is a hologram and everything you can see - including this article and the device you are reading it on - is a mere projection. This is according to a controversial model proposed in 1997 by theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena. Until now the bizarre theory had never been tested, but recent mathematical models suggest that the mind-boggling principle could be true. According to the theory, gravity in the universe comes from thin, vibrating strings. These strings are holograms of events that take place in a simpler, flatter cosmos. Professor Maldacena´s model suggests that the universe exists in nine

My favorite physicist Dr. Michio Kaku posted this on FB. If you watch History, NatGeo or Science channels - you´ve no doubt seen/heard him. He´s fun to watch and to a certain extent makes physics accessible to the layman.

There´s a full description of the Holographic principle on the page in the orange box.

"Hey, that looks like the reflection of a flatter universe!´ To which I always reply, ´Well Duh!´

Read the book, "The Physics of Christianity" for a look into the world of what we can´t even pretend to be able to know. It is written by Dr, Frank Tipler, Professor of Mathematical Physics at Tulane University. It does have a little Catholic leaning, so be advised, but it does contain some interesting revelations about our existence.

The Heisenburg Uncertainity Principle (you can´t know the speed AND location of a particle at the same time), which adds "fuzziness" to our world, is perfectly explained with a "Multiverse" theory. A theory, I might add, that a majority of Physicists bandy about without giving it a second thought. I can´t even pretend to understand WHY such things exist, however, in the Omnipresence and especially the Foreknowledge of God, He knew in eternity past every decision you would ever make in life, or not make, and all its ramificatons throughout all of human time. This could explain the infinity of universes. Today, however, we are alive in the universe in which decision we made at this moment. It still does not alter the fact that salvation is through faith alone, in Christ alone, and that that remains eternal. Crazy stuff that Physics.

Everything we ever experience as a conscious being has come through the interaction of virtual quantum particles that are fluctuations within an empty vacuum of space. The fluctuations produce forces, fields, and particles that emerge over time based on trial-and-error strategies of self organization that our mind subjectively experiences as "The World". What Maldecena was able to show was that what we experience as a three spatial dimensional universe of forces and particles can be modeled as a set of simpler processes in only two dimensions on the boundary of the three dimensional space that it encloses. This was suggested by the discovery by Bekenstein and Hawking that the information that is preserved by black holes as they accumulate mass is not lost to the universe but stored in the area of their event horizon and not their volume.

Holograms are images that look 3d but materially do not exist at all. They are made in your mind by processing light that bounces off or through a film that was affected by light that bounced off of a 3d object previously. We can not create an image like that without the real object to begin with. Sorry, no holographic GCI yet. Maybe the hologram analogy is flawed.

I have always thought of it as fields of energy interacting on a consciousness that learns to interpret them into a world. Your mind is what is getting projected onto. How big is your screen?

Once in a dream (and it wasn´t like a normal dream) I saw an event that happened 3 weeks later. Fortunately I told someone the next day about my "dream" because otherwise I would have thought I´d lost my marbles.

3 weeks later it happened and although I never saw it in person,the way the death happened was exactly as I had seen it down to the exact location of the body and on the exact day of the exact event.

Other than being afraid to go to sleep for a while I always wondered how anyone can see what we don´t think has happened yet.

Brian Greene explains all this stuff in The Hidden Reality. Superstring theory does NOT say that strings are holograms. It says that the mathematics describing strings and all else exists on a distant, impenetrable, two-dimensional bounding surface of our universe, without gravity, where quantum mechanics describes all of reality.

If you´ve ever seen a hologram, the device that makes it has markings on it that bear no resemblance to what we see as the hologram. Hence whatever exists on that bounding surface wouldn´t look anything like what we know here in the so-called "bulk." So it is with the Maldacena holographic universe.

It´s worth pointing out that what Maldacena came up with as a holographic universe wasn´t the universe we live in, but still a mathematically possible universe. Our own universe is obviously mathematically possible, but too complex for us to grasp mathematically right now.

Brian Greene doesn´t say so, but it seems to me that Maldacena´s math, together with our experience of holograms, establishes the long-sought connection of string theory with reality.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said. Obama

Two months ago, a petition bearing more than 110,000 signatures was delivered to The Post, demanding a ban on any article questioning global warming. The petition arrived the day before publication of my column, which consisted of precisely that heresy. The column ran as usual. But I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition. The proper word for that attitude is totalitarian. It
