I have been thinking about Verlinde's entropic gravity in relation to AdS/CFT. In Verlinde's gravity, gravity is

**caused**by changes in entropy on holographic screens. Now if we look at the dimensionality of this picture, we have gravity in 3+1 dimensions (regular space, like where Newtons law og gravitation works) and then we have the holographic screens, embedded in the 3+1 dimensions, as 2+1-dimensional objects. Now this looks to me, as we have:

- Gravity in 3+1-dimensions
- Information on holographic-screens (2+1-dimensions)

This looks to me, like we have situation, which is described in the AdS/CFT-conjecture. In AdS/CFT we have the following

- Gravity in n+1-dimensions
- A conformal field theory in (n-1)+1-dimensions

Here, can the duality then be seen as a relation between gravity and a CFT, where one causes the other? If so, then it looks viable with Verlinde's gravity.

Also, this thought leads to two questions from my side. 1) Is it possible to describe the information on the holographics screens (in Verlinde's gravity) as a conformal field? And 2) Can Verlinde's gravity (in this relation) be seen as a proof of the AdS/CFT-conjecture in the low-energy/infrared regime?
