This presentation will explore the evolution of the concept of PT symmetry in physics, from its origins in quantum mechanics to its recent applications in holography. We will start by introducing PT symmetry and its implications for the study of non-Hermitian systems in quantum mechanics. We will then discuss the recent developments in PT holography, including its applications to the study of quantum entanglement and the holographic principle. Finally, we will consider the future prospects for PT symmetry in physics, including its potential for furthering our understanding of quantum gravity and the nature of space and time.
