Holonomic brain theory and Capsule Network

Hinton's CapsNet explains about entity's pose, lighting and deformation, instead of shape feature and pattern. While I reading Hinton's idea, I thought about Holonomic brain theory.

"If a holographic image, containing the image of an apple, is cut in half and then illuminated by a laser, each half will contain the overall image of the apple! Even if the halves are sliced again and again, from each little piece of the film can be restored the image of a whole apple (although the image will become less clear with the reduction of the parts)."

Our brain is also very similar. We don't store images in brain, we store some transformed code. We don't lose our memory, it just fade out.
