Is The Universe A Giant Hologram?


Scientists have found the "clearest evidence yet" that the universe we inhabit is a giant hologram, paving the way towards reconciling one of physics' most pressing issues: the relationship between Einstein's theory of relativity and quantum physics.

In other words, we could be living inside a giant 3D projection of what is actually a two-dimensional space, similar to an IMAX movie theater screen or a painting. Or one could simply imagine the experience of looking at a three-dimensional object from various angles and seeing it change shape according to the point of observation.

The new experimental simulations proposed by Japanese scientist, Yoshifumi Hyakutake, and his team at the Ibaraki University of Japan tackle the varying energies of black holes discovered in parallel universes. But it also goes a long way towards marrying Einstein's theory of general relativity and the theory of quantum mechanics as the two main theories describing our universe.

The findings were published in the journal, Nature, on December 10.

Einstein, in his collective theorizing, posited that space and time are related and should be considered and calculated in relation to each other, and that the measurements of objects will be relative to the velocity of the person observing them. It is very empirical and observable.

Quantum mechanics, on the other hand, deals with particle behavior on an infinitely small scale and therefore cannot belong in Einstein's empirically testable worldview for the simple reason that it is too abstract and theoretical.

Though both suffer from certain inconsistencies: Einstein's theory, for instance, breaks down when one imagines the middle of a black hole -- an object in which time and space both collapse -- the theories have been competing each other and generally hardly viewed as parallel. Scientists have been looking for a linking theory.

Hyakutake's model explains some inconsistencies between the two big models, furthering the research first carried out in 1997. Then, theoretical physicist, Juan Maldacena, catapulted 'string theory' into the spotlight providing a reliable realization of the holographic principle.

That theory -- which is widely said to explain the nature of everything -- believes that the universe is made of tiny, immeasurable 'strings', or one-dimensional objects that vibrate and fluctuate, and in so doing account for the activity of all matter and time.

The theory goes that the strings exist in nine dimensions of space and one of time. But because their scale is so difficult to measure -- and yet they are believed to control everything -- they are said to 'project' their activity onto a much simpler, flat space with no gravity whatsoever.

This produced a world without gravity laws. However, it did not yet prove the universe is a hologram.

Furthering the string theory, Hyakutake wrote two papers.

In one, he measures the internal energy of a black hole -- specifically, the place where the hole meets the universe, otherwise known as the 'event horizon'. He measures the activity of its visible properties (made up of visible particles) based on string theory and the effects of virtual particles, which at times appear and then disappear -- many scientists even consider them a purely mathematical tool.

In the second paper, Hyakutake and his team calculated the same activity at lower dimensions (without gravity involved) and the results matched the measurements of the first paper.

The two new papers take Maldacena's findings further by proposing an extra dimension. That tenth lower dimension has no gravity and its particles neatly line up in a set of strings oscillating in harmony, attached to one another -- and not in chaos, which is what we had until now.

And now, the scientists finally seem to have laid hands on mathematical proof that the universe can be measured according to both approaches -- one that involves gravity and one that does not. If they are as identical as they seem, Maldacena himself predicts that we could one day use just quantum theory alone to explain the nature of everything in the universe.

Maldacena has already voiced his excitement at Hyakutake's calculations, saying that they appear to be correct. He told Nature that "the whole sequence of papers is very nice because it tests the dual [nature of the universes] in regimes where there are no analytic tests."

"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," said Leonard Susskind, a theoretical physicist at Stanford University, California, who was one of the first proponents of the theory of the universe as a hologram.

Wittner Shoes Holographic Retail Installation 2013 - Activate Media + Events

Wittner Shoes is utilising a life-size 3D holographic model in its Melbourne flagship store to better engage its customers and provide a “behind the mirror” experience.

The holographic window display at Wittner Shoes’ Melbourne Block Arcade store launched last week as part of the footwear brands involvement with Melbourne Spring Fashion Week.

Tony Paladino, ecommerce and marketing manager for Wittner, told B&T the activation, which runs only at night, is designed to entice the customer to visit the following day.

“It’s really about getting people to stop and think about Wittner Shoes. In the end the girl is left standing there in her underwear and it’s all about the shoes.

“It comes back to it doesn’t matter what you are wearing, if you have the right shoes on then everything looks great.”

The model in the display, created by Active Media and Events, is shown trying on multiple outfits before stripping down to her underwear. She then disappears in a burst of stars to do it all again.

The holographic window uses Black Magic Cinema Camera and Projectors to create a 3D experience that doesn’t require 3D glasses.

Jolon Cooke, managing director of Activate, said: "Interactive services including holographic displays, augmented reality and interactive projection will gradually become major trends for Australian retailers.”

"More and more retail brands are realising they need to focus on the consumer experience as well as creating engaging interactive promotions to inspire to them to physically visit stores as they fight against their nemesis online purchasing platforms."

Paladino told B&T the Wittner brand is always looking at different ways to entice and engage with customers both in-store and online.

The click and collect service co-CEO Michael Wittner spoke of at MSFW will launch either later this year or very early next year, according to Paladino who said the brand is also looking at establishing a same day dispatch for online orders.

Within three to four months stores may carry portable tablets as a “seeling tool and a promotional device”.

“Then long term we are looking at having interactive screens in store rather than just LED screens that show pictures and campaign imagery.”

Paladino said the screens could potentially allow customers to try on shoes and project images of clothing to allow them to imagine how the product would go with a particular dress or outfit.

The holograph is part of Wittner’s ‘Everything White’ campaign. The display will be in Melbourne until September 13 before moving to Sydney from September 25 to October 16.

So, where is Holograms or Holographic Technology heading? With constant technology improvements we could possible see tele-surgeons, gene therapy and special glasses to beam holograms back into blind peoples eyes and allow them to see, or even Holograms like Iron Man, where objects/information appears in front of us and we can actually move it around or impact it by touch.
