The holographic idea was subsequently discussed by Susskind in and the basic motivation comes from the Bekenstein bound , which asserts that the black hole entropy proportional to the area in Planck units is the maximum physically possible entropy for any system that can be placed in the same region.
Large N field theories from superstrings
Holography not only requires that the bulk spacetime can be described by degrees of freedom on the boundary, but it also prescribes that there should be a single degree of freedom for each Planck unit area.
