New Evidence: The Universe Could Be A Huge Projection – A Hologram

Last Updated on – Scientists are now presenting new evidence that the Universe could be a huge projection, a hologram!

If the Universe is a hologram then you are not real and what you are reading right now is text that doesn’t exist.

Are you willing to accept such an incredible scenario? Would it matter if you learned that you are just a character in a computer simulation?

Would you take life less seriously and stop worrying about your problems? The idea that we are living in the Matrix is seriously considered by several scientists.
Ideas are good and theories are even better, but we need more evidence to back up your claims.

Are your thoughts really your own?
Are your thoughts really your own?

Let’s take a look at the earlier research results.

We have previously discussed the subject that our Universe is a gigantic and wonderfully detailed holographic illusion.

The idea is astonishing and even disturbing but was pioneered quite a long time ago by two of the world’s most prominent scientists: American-born British physicist David Bohm (1917 – 1992), widely considered one of the best quantum physicists of all time and protégé of Albert Einstein and the quantum physicist and a neurophysiologist at Stanford University, Austrian-born, Karl Pribram, who, in fact predicted the holographic nature of perception and memory.
If the Universe is a hologram we could be able to observe a number of unexpected mysterious glitches in our simulation reality.
After all, we can assume that not even the most sophisticated computer program is free from errors.

If we suspect that we are programmed beings living inside a simulation is there any way for us to find out if this is true?

Is it possible to change the outcome of this virtual game?

Who could have created this matrix and for what reason?

Before we begin speculation about the creators of this extremely advanced computer game, we should try and determine if our world is real or not? Juan Maldacena, professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, has played a vital role in the development of this idea, which is known as the holographic principle. In the 1990s Maldacena came up with the very first model of a universe which realizes the holographic principle.

According to Maldacena’s theory, the mathematically intricate world of strings, which exist in nine dimensions of space plus one of time, would be merely a hologram: the real action would play out in a simpler, flatter cosmos where there is no gravity.
Physicists were fascinated with Maldacena’s idea because it offered a way to put the popular, but still unproven theory of strings on solid footing and because it solved apparent inconsistencies between quantum physics and Einstein’s theory of gravity. Yet, this was just a theory and scientists want solid evidence.

Nature reports, a team of physicists has provided some of the clearest evidence yet that our Universe could be just one big projection. Although their research is not an actual proof our Universe is holographic, it is considered at least compelling evidence that Maldacena’s conjecture is true.

In one of their science papers Yoshifumi Hyakutake of Ibaraki University in Japan and his colleagues “computes the internal energy of a black hole, the position of its event horizon (the boundary between the black hole and the rest of the Universe), its entropy and other properties based on the predictions of string theory as well as the effects of so-called virtual particles that continuously pop into and out of existence.”
In their second science paper “Holographic description of quantum black hole on a computer” Hyakutake and his team “calculate the internal energy of the corresponding lower-dimensional cosmos with no gravity. The two computer calculations match.

“It seems to be a correct computation,” says Maldacena, who is now at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey and who did not contribute to the team’s work.”

“The findings “are an interesting way to test many ideas in quantum gravity and string theory”, Maldacena adds. The two papers, he notes, are the culmination of a series of articles contributed by the Japanese team over the past few years. “The whole sequence of papers is very nice because it tests the dual [nature of the universes] in regimes where there are no analytic tests.”

More About The Holographic Universe

“They have numerically confirmed, perhaps for the first time, something we were fairly sure had to be true, but was still a conjecture – namely that the thermodynamics of certain black holes can be reproduced from a lower-dimensional universe,” says Leonard Susskind, a theoretical physicist at Stanford University in California who was among the first theoreticians to explore the idea of holographic universes.

Neither of the model universes explored by the Japanese team resembles our own, Maldacena notes. The cosmos with a black hole has ten dimensions, with eight of them forming an eight-dimensional sphere. The lower-dimensional, gravity-free one has but a single dimension, and its menagerie of quantum particles resembles a group of idealized springs, or harmonic oscillators, attached to one another.

Nevertheless, says Maldacena, the numerical proof that these two seemingly disparate worlds are actually identical gives hope that the gravitational properties of our Universe can one day be explained by a simpler cosmos purely in terms of quantum theory.”

Are we living in the Matrix?
Are we living in the Matrix?

Scientists would like to know if we really live in matrix and so, they try to test this quite bizarre concept practically. We can say that theoretically this bizarre scenario is possible. An unknown but highly advanced civilization living “somewhere” among the stars recognizes our “technologically advanced computer systems” as very primitive achievement.

These beings – having all possible technological achievements we can only imagine – want to have some fun and decide to play God.

For exemple, Rich Terrell, from the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology has suggested that God is in fact a cosmic computer programmer.

Such advanced aliens can bring to life the universe as a simulation on a cosmic scale, with galaxies, planets and billions of stars.

Inside this so-called universe they place us, humans and give us simulated life we consider as reality.

How can we know if we really exist?
