Testing the Holographic Principle in Earth Orbit

Testing the Holographic Principle in Earth Orbit

A space-based quantum entanglement experiment

Abstract: The Holographic Principle posits that all information contained within a volume of space can be encoded on its boundary. This principle, if validated, could profoundly alter our understanding of the universe, suggesting that our three-dimensional reality is a projection of information encoded in a lower-dimensional space. This experiment aims to test this hypothesis by investigating the behavior of entangled photons in Earth orbit, analyzing whether their correlations align with predictions of the Holographic Principle.


  1. To test the hypothesis that the informational content of a spatial volume aligns with its boundary.

  2. To measure quantum entanglement correlations of photons in Earth orbit.

  3. To validate theoretical predictions of the Holographic Principle through empirical data.

  4. To explore the implications of the Holographic Principle for the informational universe theory.


The Holographic Principle suggests that the fundamental description of the universe can be encoded on a lower-dimensional boundary surface. This groundbreaking concept aims to bridge the gap between quantum mechanics and general relativity, potentially leading to a unified theory of quantum gravity. The informational universe theory furthers this idea by proposing that the universe operates as a vast and complex computation, where information plays a central role.
