*****The Holographic Principle---A rational justification for idealism*****.
The holographic principle seems to be an epplication similar to discretization of continuous signals. In that case, there is no loss in information in converting a continuous time signal into an indexed set of point values, as long as the sampling rate is twice the highest frequency in a continuous signal. This might be a physical vbasis for Leibniz's discrete samplings of images giving the "whole" picture. Continuing that line of thought, and under the proper cicumstances, (from 3 to 2 dimensions) >> infomation in a volume = information in the volume's surface. (from 2 to 1 dimensions) >> infomation in a surface= information in the moving line describing the surface ( from 1 to 0 dimensions) >> >> infomation in the smoving line = information in an indexed set of signal >> values Monadization of a 3d physical violume would then be successively 3d to 0d mental point ----- Have received the following content ----- Sender: Roger Clough Receiver: 4dworldx Time: 2013-06-28, 11:04:56 Subject: Smolin, the Holographic Principle and Modern Physics > > >It appears that Smolin is using the Holographic principle HP (below) >to find an alternate representation for Einstein's equations. >This also pops up in theories of the black hole, which has a vortex-shaped >surface. >Also (not shown below) the relationship between a membrane and some related >volume.
