If the holographic principle says that the the observable universe could be represented as a two dimensional surface, and we accept the idea that the universe is itself a mathematical object, and cantor showed that we could in some cases represent higher dimensional sets within lower dimensional sets, then could we say that the universe is a one dimensional string, and could we also say that if it were a finite random string of arbitrarily large size then within it there would be apparently nonrandom strings of arbitrary length?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
