Has anyone watched the Series "Fabric of the Cosmos" hosted by Brian Greene? It was on PBS the other day and a portion of it talked about what is called the Holographic Principle or HologrpahicTheory.

Now this all sounds very far-fetched, unreal, or like a sci-fi movie but apparently it is based on the study black holes.

It goes something like this:

If you were to throw an object at a black hole (for example, an apple) that apple would head toward the black hole at an accelerating rate. Now, the common thought is that the apple would be consumed by the black hole and spit back out at the other end. However, this new theory suggests that all the information that is contained in that apple would be distributed over the surface of the black hole. So the apple would exist simply as information on the surface of the 2 dimensional perimeter of the black hole. However, inside the black hole (or, in some other dimension), the apple would exist as a 3 dimensional representation of the 2 dimensional information. So, this is to say, that the 3D apple does not exist, but its the 2D information is the only physical existence of the apple. The 3D apple is simply a hologram projected by the 2D information.

Now the crazy part is that this theory suggests that everything is actually 3 Dimensional representations of 2 Dimensional information that exists on the surface of a blackhole that we all live within. So, basically, everything we can see is actually just a hologram. It's like we all live in the Matrix.. well, sort of.

Just a strange concept that I felt like sharing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I.....ra%27s_net

Far away in the heavenly abode of the great god Indra, there is a wonderful net which has been hung by some cunning artificer in such a manner that it stretches out infinitely in all directions. In accordance with the extravagant tastes of deities, the artificer has hung a single glittering jewel in each "eye" of the net, and since the net itself is infinite in dimension, the jewels are infinite in number. There hang the jewels, glittering like stars in the first magnitude, a wonderful sight to behold. If we now arbitrarily select one of these jewels for inspection and look closely at it, we will discover that in its polished surface there are reflected all the other jewels in the net, infinite in number. Not only that, but each of the jewels reflected in this one jewel is also reflecting all the other jewels, so that there is an infinite reflecting process occurring.

interesting. So are black holes analogous to dew drops, and in theory each one reflecting the entirety of the whole universe?
This Fabric of the Cosmos episode did a quick segment on a spider web with dew drops much similar to the article you provided. However, at the time my mind was flooded with so many other proposed concepts that I didn't grasp what he was saying at the time.

sounds about right to me
