The universe, according to Stephen Hawking’s final theory revealed after his death, is a hologram.
Our contemporary cosmos is a hologram, according to STEPHEN HAWKING’s ultimate scientific theory.
The English theoretical physicist devised a hypothesis that revolutionized the way we think about the universe before his death on March 14, 2018. Hawking theorized that our three-dimensional reality is an illusion in collaboration with Belgian academic Thomas Hertog of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven).
Simply put, Professors Hawking and Hertog theorized that all information in the universe is stored on a flat 2D surface, from which our so-called “solid” world is projected.
“It’s a very exact mathematical notion of holography that has evolved out of string theory in the last few years, which is not fully understood but is mind-boggling and changes the scene completely,” Professor Hertog remarked back in 2018.
“The important thing to remember is that we’re not extending a spatial dimension outward. From ‘before’ the Big Bang, we are projecting out the dimension of time.”
The hypothesis, which was published in the Journal of High Energy Physics a month after his death, is compatible with everlasting inflation and Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity.
Professor Hertog defined a hologram as a type of dimensional transformation when explaining what it is.
“It’s a hypothesis that envisions a beginning to the cosmos when time isn’t existing but our understanding of time crystallizes,” Professor Hertog stated.
“It’s also implying that time is basically emerging from a state for which we have no terms.
“The most we can do is some really abstract timeless state.”
Professor Hawking was a major specialist on string theory and quantum physics who contributed to the development of the ‘multiverse theory,’ which states that several worlds exist in parallel but each with its own dynamics.
Despite his contributions, Hawking remained skeptical, stating in 2017 that he had “never been a fan of the multiverse.”
Professor Hertog stated that, prior to his friend’s death, Professor Hawking believed that holography could help people understand the multiverse hypothesis better.
“We are not down to a single, unique universe,” Professor Hawking remarked, “but our findings imply a considerable reduction of the multiverse, to a far smaller spectrum of conceivable universes.”
His final published hypothesis is not the first to envisage the cosmos as a type of pseudo-existence, since hypotheses showing that humanity is alive have arose in recent decades. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
