kanji is what the japanese call hanzi. the japanese call the english alphabet romaji and the japanese have two specific written languages called katakana and hiragana

Kanji is an updated version of Hanzi that the Japanese took into using.

Actually, The holographic principle claims gravity in the universe comes from thin, vibrating strings. These strings are holograms of events that take place in a simpler, flatter cosmos.
The principle suggests that, like the security chip on your credit card, there is a two-dimensional surface that contains all the information needed to describe a three-dimensional object - which in this case is our universe.
In essence, the theory claims that data containing a description of a volume of space - such as a human or a comet - could be hidden in a region of this flattened, 'real' version of the universe.
In a black hole, for instance, all the objects that ever fall into it would be entirely contained in surface fluctuations, almost like a piece of computer memory on contained in a chip.
In a larger sense, the theory suggests that the entire universe can be seen as a 'two-dimensional structure projected onto a cosmological horizon' - or in simpler terms, a projection.
If we could understand the laws that govern physics on that distant surface, the principle suggests we would grasp all there is to know about reality.

Oh, I've just always heard of that explained as the string theory. I don't believe it to be two-dimensional, more like one-dimensional or something like that, but I thought it was generally thought to be one of the only possible ways for the universe to exist.

I was referring to a hypothesis I had heard that basically regarded the universe to be a computer simulation.
