A naive view of physics—classical or quantum—would have us believe that an infinite amount of information can be contained in a finite 3-D space. After all, matter can have an infinity of classical configurations there, and quantum fields have an infinity of modes in that region. ’t Hooft and Susskind’s holographic principle [1, 2] has shattered this popular view: it holds that insofar as the information required to describe them is concerned, physical systems are inherently two–dimensional in… CONTINUE READING
