Holographic Universe

    This theory was accepted? Is it more to be correct or more to be wrong?

    String theory has been accepted?

    The theory is not accepted. Its most well-understood form AdS/CFT remains a conjecture, and it is unclear whether our universe, in which the expansion of space is accelerating, can be described by the theory.

    I didnt say string theory is accepted only that the holographic principle is accepted as a part of string theory meaning some string folks have embraced it but not all.

    The AdS/CFT correspondence has been mathematically proven in some cases, though none of these cases match our universe.

    I think that it is accepted that the quantity of bits that can be stored in a region is proportional to its area.

    This isn't correct. You're referring to the Bekenstein Bound and it's an upper limit, not a proportionality relation.

    I apologise for misinterpreting your post.

    I have Susskind and Lindsay's book on the subject. I'll get some references for you, when I get chance.
