I Am a Hologram. Damn Proud, Too!


I've been called many things in my life ... but never a hologram. A good friend of mine implied that I may be a hologram ... and that we all may be mere holograms. He sent me a link to a physics paper called: The Holographic Principle and M-theory.

Back in the 60's or 70's being called a hologram is what we thought an insult would sound like in the 21st century. But now that it IS the 21st century, it turns out to be a compliment.

What I found particularly interesting was this quote:
The Yang-Mills theory has gauge group SU(N), where N is very large, and it is said to be `supersymmetric' because it has a symmetry which allows you to exchange bosons and fermions.
Those physicists are an absolute laugh riot! I mean, really! Exchanging bosons and fermions! The next thing you know they will be telling us that the physics behind rocket propulsion are just the farts of God.

Physics can be really big fun. A very creative bunch. The coolest theory I ever heard was called Oogenesis. Oogenesis states that the entire universe, all the matter seen and unseen, was created in an instant ... out of nothing. In the minutes and hours before the Big Bang there was such an abundance of sheer nothing, that there suddenly had to be something.

Think about that for a while.
