Holographic universes, information, and dark matter

  1. Sep 6, 2011 #1
    I am a physician not a physicist, but I read Brian Green, Susskind, Thorne, Gamow, etc. I recently learned of the Blue Brain project as well. It has occurred to me that dark matter may represent a two dimensional sphere surrounding each galaxy which holds the information for that galaxy. The altered dimensionality of that dark matter makes it impossible to detect and prevents it from interacting with anything but closed strings such as the hypothetical graviton or inflaton.

    So if each galaxy is surrounded by the information that describes it (a holographic view), the galaxy itself may be the interior of a black hole with the physical embodiment of the "blueprint" expressed at the Shwartzfield radius. As a black hole, we should be able to see the outside universe, and we may mistake redshift for the Hawking radiation.

    Subsequently, a black hole at the center of a galaxy may represent another universe with all the information to describe that universe on the surface. The blue brain project posits that among other things, the brain may actually project a sphere of reality around itself. This reminds me of the holographic view. If the brain has very little entropy might it have a kind of sphere of information surrounding it? And might our own conscious reality be an expression of that? Are our brains funtioning from an informational level like a black hole? Is consciousness mysterious because it fundamentally exists on a two dimensional spherical shell which surrounds us encoding as much information as the number of Plank squares contained within that surface? And therefore the rules of that information (consciousness) may be described by describable but dissimilar rules.

    This point of view might allow for falling into a supermassive black hole and entering another very much time dilated universe not accessible by this universe. But rather than colliding with a "singularity" you enter a new universe which may evolve over billions or trillions of years. Such a multiverse would be very interesting. The distant viewer's impression that the victim falling into the black hole is incinerated with all information being scrambled on the event horizon is consistent. Perhaps the thermodynamic end of the universe (heat death) which must lie in our future represents the final dissipation of information (maximum entropy) and thus the dissolution of our universe. When all the black holes re-emit their information with Hawking radiation, space and time cease.

    Would these vast lower dimensional spheres of dark matter not contain enough information (low entropy, energy and hence mass) have enormous mass?

    My question, has anyone ever looked at this blending of dark matter, black holes and the concept that the brain itself generates a kind of reality confined to three dimensional space been considered? What obvious flaws have I missed?
