Many have questioned how the universe and our planet came into existence, and physicists have struggled to find the answers. How is it that constants and physical laws came into a condition that allowed life to develop along with the sun, stars, and planets? Most religious individuals believe it was created by God or a higher power.
An alternate theory gaining traction is the holographic universe principle. This supposition purports that our universe is holographic—operated by other beings like aliens or a previous civilization. According to physics and computer VR technology experts, the chances are 50-50 that we live in some form of a simulated reality.
What Is the Holographic Universe Principle?
The holographic universe principle assumes that we live in a simulated reality. It claims that our physical, tangible world is no more than a detailed illusion. Scientists suggest that the brain projects the illusion of everything in our realm as our energy fields are being decoded into what is known as the three-dimensional world we live in.
According to the theory, what we perceive as three-dimensional reality is stored on a two-dimensional surface. Other researchers also include a fourth dimension of time in the equation. Remember, this differs from the better-known hypothesis that we live within a computer simulation.
Debating The Evidence Of A Holographic Universe
Prior theories purport that any matter that falls into a black hole is sucked in and crushed out of existence. Yet, how can something just disappear when scientific principles assert that matter can not be created or destroyed? The holographic principle solves this paradox, as in its existence, nothing is destroyed. Information stored in the matter is possibly smeared around the black hole’s boundaries rather than vanishing into nothingness. Such concepts could apply to the holographic principle as the universe’s originator.
Scientists have discovered that the holographic principle falls in alignment with mathematics. Mathematicians have shown that a universal computer can create an artificial universe to simulate its world. Their studies foster the idea that these simulations nest inside other simulations that are inside a simulation. This opens up the idea that there could indeed be a multiverse that spawns other virtual metaverses.
Even Elon Musk claims that the world could be a holographic simulation, but still has doubts. In 2016 he stated, “Forty years ago, we had Pong, two rectangles and a dot … That is what the games were. Now, 40 years later, we have photorealistic 3D simulations with millions of people playing simultaneously, and it’s getting better every year. And soon, we’ll have virtual reality, and augmented reality. If you assume any rate of improvement at all, the games will become indistinguishable from reality.” So perhaps we are living in a base reality after all. But the possibility of our world being virtual is also possible. What do you think?
