### Living in a Holographic World

#### Abstract

The nature of a holographic world is described in terms of the holographic principle of quantum gravity. This description requires a radical transformation of our understanding of quantum theory. Instead of unitary time evolution as the defining principle of quantum theory, this reformulation of quantum theory is inherently observer-centric and observer-dependent. The only valid definition of time is the observer's own proper-time as the observer follows an accelerating world-line through its dynamically curved space-time geometry, which is a holographic aspect of the observer's own holographic world. The observer's holographic world only appears to come into existence when the observer's event horizon, which arises in the observer's accelerated frame of reference, encodes qubits of information and acts as the observer's holographic screen. Instead of unitary time evolution as the defining principle of quantum theory, the only foundational principles of this reformulation of quantum theory are the nature of entropic information and the observer's own accelerated motion that gives rise to its event horizon. The observer itself can only be understood as the perceiving consciousness present at the central point of view of its own holographic world. This reformulation of quantum theory tells us that the observer must come first. First the observer comes into existence and then its holographic world appears to come into existence as the observer enters into an accelerated frame of reference. This reformulation of quantum theory tells us that there must be a source of the information, energy and consciousness that characterizes the observer and its holographic world. That source can only be described in terms of negation as absolute nothingness or a void of undifferentiated consciousness.
