    The Holographic Principle
    Image Credit & Copyright: E. Winfree, K. Fleischer, A. Barr et al. (Caltech)

    Is this image worth a thousand words? According to the Holographic Principle, the most amount of information you can get from this image is about 3 x 1065 bits for a normal sized computer monitor. The Holographic Principle, yet unproven, states that there is there is a maximum amount of information content held by regions adjacent to any surface. Therefore, counter-intuitively, the information content inside a room depends not on the volume of the room but on the area of the bounding walls. The principle derives from the idea that the Planck length, the length scale where quantum mechanics begins to dominate classical gravity, is one side of an area that can hold only about one bit of information. The limit was first postulated by physicist Gerard 't Hooft in 1993. It can arise from generalizations from seemingly distant speculation that the information held by a black hole is determined not by its enclosed volume but by the surface area of its event horizon. The term "holographic" arises from a hologram analogy where three-dimension images are created by projecting light though a flat screen. Beware, other people looking at the above image may not claim to see 3 x 1065 bits -- they might claim to see a teapot.

    Hmmm.. I don't see a teapot. I see a picnic scene on the French Riviera with half-naked women bathing in the water.

    I have some great roschach pics here if you want to trade.....

    If you want to see something more 'normal' than naked woman, like a teapot:

    (am i really writing this ?guh

    )

    Just focus deeply on the center of your screen, after some seconds you will naturally focus as if you were wathing something far beyon you screen (sorry, dunno the word in english

    ) and then image will somewhat double and adjacent part will form a teapot on a edge(i really prefer the french riviera thing). It is the same mecanisn that makes you think you have 2 fingers, semi-transparent (just put them on the edge of your nose, and focus on the screen)


    wet1:Maybe i just didn't understand a thing but i really dont see how sterograms add information in a pic. I mean the pic has to be so altered that it just looses all its information (as it is compeletely constrained by the stereogram)

    Strange coincidence. I also see naked women everywhere...

    To see a one-dimensional object you need less data than to see a 3-d (which needs enough data to interpret all 3 dimensions). Admittedly, this is an optical illusion, which fools the eye into thinking there is a 3d object where there isn't one. It is the idea that is being shown here, not the actual picture, for a demonstration.

    Old stuff. I've seen similar pics about 15 years ago.

    Now it looks like Bebelina in her red bliss top and shiva skirt topped off with a pink hug headwear.

    Nice stereogram, wet1. Very easy to see.

    Yes, it's a teapot. No naked women, as far as I can see. Although, with a bit of imagination...
