Notes on Holographic Reality
A system can be considered holographic if each unit within that system contains a compressed representation of the entire system. For example, organisms are holographic because they contain DNA compressed within each cell. The universe is metaphorically holographic because the atom is isomorphic of a solar system or a galaxy, but this is not a true holographic construction because you cannot reproduce an entire universe from the information in a single atom. In contrast, fractals are systems that repeat instructions over and over to form recurring embedded patterns from microscopic to macroscopic scales. Just as an organism is a holographic representation of its DNA, a fractal is a holographic representation of its algorithm recurring through time and space.
