Hologram revolution: The theory changing all physics: Leonard Susskind of Stanford University in California, one of the original architects of the holographic principle, describes the duality as the "new orthodoxy". Skenderis is convinced that we are only just beginning to see its potential. "If we look forward to 50 years from now, we will see this period as a precursor to a time when physics is totally reformulated in the language of holography," he says. "Once the theory is properly fleshed out, we will be able to apply it to almost any problem."
