We point out that aspects of quantum mechanics can be derived from the holographic principle, using only a perturbative limit of classical general relativity. In flat space, the covariant entropy bound reduces to the Bekenstein bound. The latter does not contain Newton’s constant and cannot operate via gravitational backreaction. Instead, it is protected by—and in this sense, predicts—the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.
