The universe as an illusion: We live in a hologram and black holes are the key to this mystery

Recent research by physicists suggests that black holes are a type of hologram. This hypothesis arose in the 1980s from the work of scientists such as Jacob Beckenstein, who was able to precisely calculate how much a single piece of information would grow when a single piece of information was added to a black hole. . It turns out that the surface area of ​​a black hole increases by exactly one Planck unit. The Planck length is the smallest measurable distance, approximately 10^-35 meters.

This is important because at this scale our understanding of physics completely collapses. It is believed that a quantum theory of gravity is needed to understand processes at this level. Research has shown that when information is added to a black hole, unique reactions related to quantum gravity occur. This information appears to be related to the black hole’s surface area rather than its volume. All his 3D information about what fell into the black hole seems to be encoded onto its 2D surface.

This discovery suggests that black holes are like holograms, and that the universe itself may be a hologram. This insight into the holographic nature of quantum gravity could revolutionize our understanding of space, time, matter, and energy. Therefore, the next gravitational revolution may be imminent. It begins with the observation that black holes are the regions of greatest entropy in the universe, and that by consuming information, black holes increase in surface area rather than volume. This research could lead to a completely new understanding of gravity.
