Are we living in a HOLOGRAM? Physicists believe our universe could just be a projection of another cosmos

    Holographic principle claims gravity comes from thin, vibrating strings
    These strings are holograms of events that take place in a flatter cosmos
    According to this theory, everything we experience can be described as events that take place in this flatter location
    This is the first time the validity of the model has been mathematically tested

--snip--the article is long but fascinating, worth clicking the link to read.

The following is a sidebar-not the article. c lick the link for the article.

THE HOLOGRAPHIC PRINCIPLE

The holographic principle claims gravity in the universe comes from thin, vibrating strings.

These strings are holograms of events that take place in a simpler, flatter cosmos.

The principle suggests that, like the security chip on your credit card, there is a two-dimensional surface that contains all the information needed to describe a three-dimensional object - which in this case is our universe.

In essence, the theory claims that data containing a description of a volume of space - such as a human or a comet - could be hidden in a region of this flattened, 'real' version of the universe.

In a black hole, for instance, all the objects that ever fall into it would be entirely contained in surface fluctuations, almost like a piece of computer memory on contained in a chip.

In a larger sense, the theory suggests that the entire universe can be seen as a 'two-dimensional structure projected onto a cosmological horizon' - or in simpler terms, a projection.

If we could understand the laws that govern physics on that distant surface, the principle suggests we would grasp all there is to know about reality.

Well that explains the DUmmies, now what about the rest?
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

"America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within."  Stalin

My theory, the universe is a mobius loop.

My theory is that the universe sits on the back of a turtle who is standing on the back of another turtle.
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

This would be a great thread for one of our moles to take over to the DUmp.  I'll bet Nads would have some interesting but unintelligible but, interesting thoughts on the subject.
