“Holographic noise” may herald new era in physics
by Kate Melville
A British-German team of physicists searching the depths of space for gravitational waves may have stumbled on one of the most important discoveries in physics, according to American physicist Craig Hogan. Hogan, from the Fermilab Centre for Particle Astrophysics in Illinois, is convinced that data from a gravitational wave detector at the Centre for Gravitational Physics in Germany contains the tell-tale signature of a holographic universe. The signature, Hogan says, manifests itself as a mysterious background noise in the detector data that has so far not been explained.
The researchers operating the gravitational wave detector (known as GEO 600) will now carry out further experiments that may yield more evidence in support of Hogan’s theory. If proved correct, the new findings could play a pivotal role in the quest to bring together quantum mechanics and Einstein’s theory of relativity.
The holographic universe and super string ‘theories’ are mystifying.
This computer monitor your are viewing right now is not really a solid object. It is solid in the sense that the vibrations of the matter are ‘encoded’ to make it seem that way to us.
