Calling kavips and other science junkies: we live inside a credit-card hologram
Or, it may well be that the universe is a giant hologram and that we're inside it.
Did I mention that it is blurry?
I have read the hologram theory of the universe on several occasions, and never understood it.
This article finally makes it comprehensible (if you concentrate a lot and read it twice), and ... even provides hope that theory can be tested, because the basic "pixel" unit turns out to be significantly larger than Planck length.
If you read this and try to understand it, the amount of brainpower in use will then be averaged out against the brain cells dying as you watch the Eagles' game tomorrow.
