Abstract: We will describe work in progress in which we argue that a generalization of the procedure developed by Gao-Jafferis-Wall can allow one to see the entirety of the entanglement wedge. Gao-Jafferis-Wall demonstrated that one can see excitations behind the horizon by deforming the boundary Hamiltonian using a non-local operator. We will argue in a simple class of examples that deforming the boundary Hamiltonian by a specific modular Hamiltonian can allow one to see (almost) everything in the entanglement wedge. Time permitting, we may comment on connections to previous proposals for bulk reconstruction and possible future directions.
