The Holographic Universe Explained

    It seems that the holographic principle has the potential to be a theory of everything but its still a work in progress. That two of the hints came from black holes (Hawking radiation and bh entropy) leaves me to wonder where the next clues might appear. And yeah there is a lot in this video but my neurons are getting mad swole from the workout.

    so i had an idea, but i wouldnt know who to ask or where to ask. but here it is: what if dark matter is actually the area within space-time where actual matter will exist or has existed throughout the entirety of all space-time? it would somewhat explain why dark matter seems to have gravitational effects on current matter. its not a separate matter acting on "current" matter..its just matter that will be there, or has been there at some point. made sense to me, but i dont really have physicists around to tell me im wrong :)

    Here's something Matt O' Dowd, can ponder when he has a coffee chat with fellow astronomers. Tuesday morning, April 23. Fourteen minutes after sunrise, looking-down at the Barge Canal, in New York, from a bridge, A mirror reflection of the sky. A patch of sky became brilliant blue. Hazy white surrounding it. Then. In a heartbeat, it closed-up. From the inside-out. Like getting suck-in by a vacuum. No. Not my imagination, as others saw the same. Straight-up. An arms length from the Sun's position. A cosmic phenomena? Weather related? A worm hole? Just when science claims to have the answer, the Universe changes the question. The Universe must be Liberal.

    Matt something about black holes and the big bang bothers me.

    Spacetime, I have a question about energy and entropy. We all know there is no perpetual motion, I mean if there were, the more it happened, the more it would tend to happen. It would mean a source of energy that would just keep growing and growing unchecked. But lets do a thought experiment a second. The amount of energy in a system doesn't necessarily correlate to how much potential energy there is, or how much work can be extracted from that energy. For instance an automobile engine wouldn't produce very much work if the temperature and density of the air outside the engine, was the same as the combusted gases inside of it. It's the difference in heat and pressure that makes the engine do work. So lets say there was perpetual motion, and it just kept pumping energy into a closed system; at a certain point, in spite of there being lots of energy, the density of it would start to become uniform, IE things get hot and expand, and so at a certain point, it wouldn't matter how energetic it was, if everything was energetic right? If the universe were having infinite amounts of energy pumped into it forever, would we even notice it? I mean from the perspective of doing more or less work. Things would get hot for awhile but it's a closed system, temperatures would equalize, and probably matter might get hotter and hotter, and molecules would be unstable, but would it produce any more usable work? I hope you understand what I'm asking because I find it hard to express it with words. I'm trying to say that I don't think perpetual energy in a closed system affects entropy in the long run unless you also have perpetual non-energy. The opposite of energy, sucking it back out unequal to what is going in.

    Question: I was thinking about determinism. If you hypothetically could go back to the beginning of the universe and measure the mass, velocity and every single property of every single particle and all things that existed in that tiny space, you could then predict every single thing that was ever going to happen afterwards, right? I see no flaw, except, I do not know to which degree the quantum world is immeasurable. Of course not with our technology, but to prove determinism, we only hypothetically have to be able to measure it. Do we simply not know, or is it measurable? Thanks in advance, Any input greatly appreciated.

    When you do local transformations : scale (Weyl symmetry ) , local rotation (gauge transformation of dirac field).. etc Sometimes you visualize those transformations as active transformations (changing the function itself) and sometimes as passive transformations (rotation of the coordinates without touching the function) ..

    JFC, this is craziness. Basically every bit of terminology you used is based on science unproven in any laboratory experiment, built off other terminology unproven in laboratory experiment. Stop just adding new unproven terms to fill in the gaps of bad science; it's high time science figures out how the basics work before building all sorts of new forces and particles to substitute for our ignorance. "The weird thing is that when you write the quantum wave equation for the gluon strand with length as a separate dimension, you get the wave equation of a graviton, the quantum particle of gravity, which is ridiculous given the puny energy of a meson!" Wtf is this nonsense. Have we suddenly figured out all this "quantum" stuff? Are we Facebook messaging different dimensions now? You're just looking at results, making calculations for those results, and then when the calculations fail in any case, creating new terminology to explain away the failures. 'Oh, it must be an entirely new force we can't test in the lab and have no evidence of; it cannot possibly be that we're wrong!'

    The way I understand it is the ads-cft model uses 4-D space in the bulk (where we are) with a 3-D, infinitely far surface. As you said, obviously that looks like "problem" because our world is, at least as far as we know, 3+1 in the potential bulk (with 2+1 on the potential surface). Can the problem be solved by compactifying the 4-D space into a 3+1, and doing the same on the surface (compact 3-D into 2+1).

    So. What I got out of that is we've been asking the wrong questions, its what we don't see or understand that reconciles the apparent paradoxes we've backed ourselves into by making assumptions. The questions become meaningless.. the paradoxes resolve themselves if you add a higher dimension to perception. But the questions arise because we are not taking into account the reality of the situation. Reality is more complex than we assume. Sort of the same thing Einstein did to Newtonian physics. Newtons Laws work well enough as long as you ignore the details. Einstein brought up a few more details of observation and then explained them away as Special Relativity.. resolving the paradoxes he originally brought up. I sense a recurring pattern here.. sort of like a TV Series Arc.

Surprise! It equals -1/12! So, what's my point, you ask? My point is that science, especially Physics and Cosmology, has been hijacked by mathematicians. These charlatans are driving scientific inquiry into the absurd, where stating 2 + 2 = 5 is no longer insanity.

On this 2d event horizon of the black hole, in combination with a strong 1d force on earth, like an iron core crystal, enough 2d forces can emerge on this earth to create a vertical colom right from the black hole to this 1d source, consiousness is the vertical axis between these dimensions.

    If the universe exhibits ADS/CFT correspondence, could that be an alternative explanation for the measured flatness of the universe instead of dark energy? Matter + dark matter, being below the critical energy density for flat/positive curvature, would give rise to the 3+1D ADS, and yet our measurements of flatness would reflect the flatness of its 2+1D boundary.

    Wait a second ... I've been following these videos for quite a while now, and my mind just thought of a hypothetical scenario. If our universe, is a holographic projection of the 2D surface of a black hole, then maybe the expansion of the universe and the shrinking cosmic event horizon of our observable universe is the same as the black hole evaporating and "losing information" as it radiates it back out into space. (I know this might be wrong, but I thought it was cool enough to share.)

  101. Earthling Solarian

    Earthling SolarianIl y a 5 jours

    Could consciousness be dark energy or a factor driving the expansion of the universe? Although the theories we currently have are incomplete, it appears to me that the universe essentially follows physical laws, either on the macro or quantum scale, and thus the universe as it is, is a result of the natural progression of physics. However, consciousness and awareness seems to not fit into this picture. e.g. I pick up a stone on earth, take a rocket to Mars and deposit it there. It is hard to imagine that piece of rock could otherwise be on Mars if it were not intervened by a conscious decision and acted upon. Is it possible that the conscious intervention of the natural progression of nature be at least partially responsible? Is information created when humans/aliens act? And the information created is driving the expansion like adding information into a blackhole resulting in an increase of the surface area of the event horizon? A fluctuation of entropy?
