Hi. I've always been fascinated by black holes. I have recently leared something new about them. It is regards to whether or not information that enters a black hole is lost or somehow preserverd? This is an important question because if it is the former case, then black holes would violate the law of the conservation of information, a super basic law. What I cam to find out is that the information that falls into a black hole becomes stored, or smeard, around the suface (horizon) of the black hole itself. And that this ended a really long debate ragarding the matter. I think I understand the concept well enough. A black hole acts like a stopwactch in a sense. Anwyway, something about this idea seems to suggest that the universe works like a hologram. In that the information it contains (or is), can be stored on a low dimensional sruface, and then projected outward. I was wondering if anyone could clarify some of the finer points of this idea. Specifcly, how does the fact that information becomes stored on the surface of the black hole seem to imply a (hologromiphic?) universe? And what would something like that mean?
