A recent scientific research findings suggest that the universe is a hologram, new theory proposing to rectify the apparent contradictions between Einstein’s theory of relativity and the behavior of particles on a sub-atomic level.
Pool of international scientists from England, Italy, and Canada has come to a step closer to suggesting that this controversial hypothesis may be true.
According to Professor Kostas Skenderis of the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom, the concept of the holographic universe using a simple analogy.
In ordinary holograms “a three-dimensional image is encoded in a two-dimensional surface, such as in the hologram on a credit card.” He goes on to say that the theory assumes that the entire universe is encoded in a very similar manner.
Skenderis and his team added that irregularities in the cosmic microwave background utilized top of the range telescopes and sensor equipment to detect and attempt to interpret the vast amount of data hidden away in ‘white noise’ and microwaves which are remnants of the supreme blast of energy that was responsible for the creation of this universe.
The group was able to discover some connections in this data with the theoretical assumptions that underpin quantum field theory.
Effectively, their data found that the simplest of these theories was supported by the information they were able to discern about the nature of atomic activity in the era of the early universe.
Meanwhile, the concept of the holographic universe was first suggested back in the 1990s.
Professor Skenderis said that the concept of the “holographic universe” was now perhaps the most probable explanation for the gulf between Einstein’s theory of relativity and major concepts underpinning quantum physics.
Skenderis is positive that the research of his team would take physics another step closer to discovering the facts about the nature of this universe, to offer new avenue of discovery in science.
