Open peer commentary on the article “Eigenforms, Interfaces and Holographic Encoding: Toward an Evolutionary Account of Objects and Spacetime” by Chris Fields, Donald D. Hoffman, Chetan Prakash & Robert Prentner. Upshot: I emphasize possible analogies and links between the content of Fields et al.’s target article and some consolidated recent studies in the literature of quantum gravity and the information loss paradox for black holes. This follows from the attempt by the authors to account for spacetime as an error-correcting code. The paradigm the authors focus on can be naturally cast in the language of some models of quantum gravity based on graph theory, and suggests a generalization of the perceptual systems so as to account for quantum holographic encoding as described in quantum gravity.
