The World as Hologram
From S E B A S T I E N G O Y
The second and third pages of a scientific paper are reproduced from their original PDF, in its computer screen resolution. The text thus appears as made of elementary colored squares. This paper justifies in simple terms the holographic principle, according to which our universe can be described as a structure on the surface of an infinitely remote screen. The author, an eminent specialist of string theory, postulates that "in a certain sense the world is two dimensional and not three dimensional as previously supposed".
