    Quantum physics has proven that this world is a holographic illusion, what do you think?

    Everything is made out of atoms. If you look closely at an atom using a microscope, you will see gaseous energy. This is ver profound!

    I have 2 physicists in my family and have had the opportunity to discuss this with them. It is extremely interesting point of view. Reality is never absolute. There is always scope for 'alternate realities' different from our own. The basic premise behind this 'holographic illusion' concept is that  3 - D space is just an illusion. The information about everything in our universe could actually be encoded in tiny packets in two dimensions.

      I agree. Thanks so much for your input and comment. Extremely interesting!

    The problem with your statement is that if this world is a holographic illusion, then quantum physics is just a figment of the imagination of scientists who are themselves illusions. And figments of the imagination of illusions can't prove anything.

      Yes. That is the irony of it all. Very interesting. Quantum physics says the outcome of an experiment will be influenced by the observers expectations. Actually, people in general dont realize it, but we are all connected. All is one and one is all.

    “Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.” It seems philosophers of our ancient past were right, our senses really do deceive us. Quantum physicists discovered that physical atoms are made up of vortices of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating, each one radiating its own unique energy signature. Therefore, if we really want to observe ourselves and find out what we are, we are really beings of energy and vibration, radiating our own unique energy signature -this is fact and is what quantum physics has shown us time and time again. We are much more than what we perceive ourselves to be, and it’s time we begin to see ourselves in that light. If you observed the composition of an atom with a microscope, you would see a small, invisible tornado like vortex, with a number of infinitely small energy vortices called quarks and photons. These are what make up the structure of the atom. As you focused in closer and closer on the structure of the atom, you would see nothing, you would observe a physical void.(0) The atom has no physical structure, we have no physical structure, physical things really don’t have any physical structure! Atoms are made out of invisible energy, not tangible matter.

    Yes, I somehow trust these scientists who work with incredible cutting edge technology and super complex formulae to help fathom out the mysteries of matter. At sub atomic level, beyond even that, there is only the vacuum of the universal mind, pure energy in various packet and particle form. The latest work at the Cern collider has given us the 'God' particle, the Higgs-Boson, the magical dark matter behind all other matter.
    Scientists say that this discovery will eventually lead to other incredible breakthroughs in new technology which will take us into another realm of science fiction as everyday fact.
    But I think for the purposes of the 'real' - or imagined - world we exist in, language is needed to help us make sense of underlying theories. Manipulation of these atoms though is fascinating and a bit mind blowing - it's a wonder we don't all occasionally disappear in a puff of smoke! Thankfully we don't, and life in the flesh continues as before,just about. If a rock hits me on the head, I still bleed and feel pain, gasous atoms or not!

      You are absolutely right! Thanks so much for your input.

    Atoms being insubstantial doesn't necessarily make the world an illusion, though. Get enough disparate water molecules floating close together, and you'll see a cloud. Gather enough miniscule grains of powder, and you'll see a mound. And gather many, many trillions of see-through atoms together, and you'll see a corporeal human being.

    The only illusion at hand is the result of the eye lacking the resolution to see infinitesimally-small empty spaces between atoms.

      You make sense.The world appears to be some thing that it is not. Things and people look like they are seperate from each other, however everything is connected. That is the illusion. This is why the butterfly effect is real. Thanks for your comment.

    You are referring to the holographic principle, proposed by Leonard Susskind and Gerard t'Hooft as a solution to the black hole information paradox. Essentially they discovered that the amount of information contained in a black hole is directly proportional to the black hole's surface area. This was a shock, as a naive assumption would lead one to believe that it should be related to volume. Some physicists think that it is possible that this can be extrapolated to the entire universe. In this line of thinking, the universe can be thought of as a higher dimensional projection of quantum information stored on a 2 dimensional surface.

    Susskind goes into more detail in the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DIl3Hfh9tY

    I also highly recommend his book, "Black Hole Wars", where he describes, in popular language, his journey to arrive at the idea.
