Abstract
Serious popular scientific magazines in recent years are featuring headlines such as “Why we all live in a hologram”(1) and “Are you a hologram?”(2) Are they serious? I have found that because a hologram appeals to the most far reaching of our physical perceptions, a study of it can lead typical students to grasp the concepts in advanced physics such as quantum tunneling, entanglement, and the existence of higher dimensions. Furthermore, young students without prior training in higher mathematics can be induced to appreciate the symmetry between the spatial and temporal domains of information theory in particular, and the elegance and creative power of formal ideas in general. A series of specific physical demonstrations will be presented.
