The report published Monday, January 30, 2017, proposes that our universe could be a hologram, a holographic illusion, encoded in a projection of light. Looking at the cutting-edge data which supports the holographic view of the Universe, reality may not be all that it seems.

Hologram

Kostas Skenderis of the United Kingdom’s University of Southampton and investigators from the University of Waterloo in Canada, INFN, Lecce in Italy, and the University of Salento in Italy are redefining and reframing the way we look at the universe.

Just like the chips on our credit cards, a hologram is a three-dimensional image using light illumination to display the subject. The picture has a depth to it, yet it is on the flat two-dimensional surface of the credit card.

Science

By reframing what we have thought to know, all the loose pieces begin to connect and reconcile. Einstein’s equations and principles of gravity and quantum theory have long been a stumbling block. General relativity works on the large scale and falls apart when approaching the very small quantum subatomic world of particles, like electrons and smaller.

Likewise, the theory of the very small, quantum mechanics, does not work on the very big scale. Academics and astrophysicists have been trying to unlock, unite, and resolve the differences for decades.

Universe

Opening our minds and shifting perspectives takes us closer to understanding. Using the image of a holographic universe it is possible to connect all the dots. Like watching a three-dimensional movie on a flat two-dimensional screen the images pop out. Those popped out images are real projection to us.

Big Bang

With high powered, sophisticated telescopes and sensing devices, researchers discovered evidence by examining the afterglow signals of the Big Bang. The data is hidden within the white noise microwaves. This information is the crucial piece in formulating assessments concerning quantum field theory. The outcome is the explanation of almost all patterned observations.

Scholars cite the foundational importance of understating the early beginnings of our universe.

Uniting the knowledge of how space and time came to be will be the focus of the work in future studies already underway.
