Editing, for me, is problem solving. The Holographic Principle is such a heady idea that it demands visual content that’s easy to follow and comprehend. Hopefully I was able to achieve that here. One of the things that always helps me to understand complex ideas is the language of popular culture. It’s something we all share, and in that way it can serve to ground abstractions in common mental anchors. Hence the use of McConnaughey. Who is more of a mental anchor these days than McConnaughey?!

If you want to learn more about the holographic principle, I highly recommend watching this lecture by Leonard Susskind:
