Are We Actually Living in a Hologram?

The Bible says that the things we see aren't real and that only the things we can't see are real.

Of course this makes sense in that our human flesh will only survive in the realm for 70-100 years if we are fortunate....but yet angel Gabriel could be thousands of years old!  So HE is actually real....and we are just a mist....here in the morning and gone in the afternoon.

So what if it is even more strange than that?  What if we are actually characters in a video game?  The Bible tells us that God KNEW US before we were born....much like a video game programmer would KNOW his characters before he introduced them into HIS PROGRAM.

Now scientists are kind of wondering the same thing.

The universe might just be one "vast and complex hologram". And our vision of life as being in 3D may just be an illusion.

That's according to astrophysicists who have studied the cosmic microwave background, or the afterglow that is left over from the Big Bang. After doing so, they have found substantial evidence that our universe is holographic, they said.

There is at least as much evidence for the strange theory as there is for the traditional idea of the structure of our universe, according to the astrophysicists from the University of Southampton, who worked with colleagues in Canada and Italy.

What we see of the universe might be compared with what it's like to watch a 3D film at a cinema, even though those are not made with holograms. Just like those films, we experience the depth of the image – even though we know that it really all comes from a flat screen.

Our universe may just be a more convincing version of the same thing – meaning that we can touch the objects and they look and behave as if they are real.

The idea that our universe is a hologram was first proposed in the 90s. It suggests that all of the information – what we think is our 3D reality, and time – is actually just contained on a flat surface on its boundaries.

"Imagine that everything you see, feel and hear in three dimensions (and your perception of time) in fact emanates from a flat two-dimensional field," said Kostas Skenderis, a professor of mathematical sciences at the University of Southampton. "The idea is similar to that of ordinary holograms where a three-dimensional image is encoded in a two-dimensional surface, such as in the hologram on a credit card.

The research could unify two of the most central parts of our understanding of physics – general relativity, which explains it at the biggest scale, and quantum theory, which explains it at its very smallest.

"Holography is a huge leap forward in the way we think about the structure and creation of the universe," said Professor Skenderis. "Einstein's theory of general relativity explains almost everything large scale in the universe very well, but starts to unravel when examining its origins and mechanisms at quantum level.

"Scientists have been working for decades to combine Einstein's theory of gravity and quantum theory. Some believe the concept of a holographic universe has the potential to reconcile the two. I hope our research takes us another step towards this."


You may read this and think it is so bizarre that you don't even want to ponder it.....but if you do decide to ponder it while you read your Bible, you may discover that the idea actually makes a lot of sense.
