Do we live in a hologram?

I'm making you think deep for this one!

There was a great programme on the BBC last night, "What Is Reality?". One of the theories that a scientist had was that our reality is like a hologram. That would really be amazing if they can prove that. There was another scientist that had a theory that everything can be explained so well with mathematics, so perhaps the universe is built on mathematics? There were a few jaw dropping moments in this programme. I just love how hard scientists work unravelling the secrets of the universe and they are still finding new things every day.

There is not really a way to disprove that idea. I had a philosophy professor who liked the 'brain in a vat' idea - How do we know we are not a brain in a vat being fed information in a simulation - all the people we meet and their actions are just part of the simulation.

The answer seems to be that you can't tell for sure. Caused a lot of people to move from philosophy to sciences.

Many tribal people, Buddhists and others say that we are living in the Dream...that this IS dreamtime...that the reality that we are living in is illusion. Wouldn't that be a hologram? Yes, it is all real and yes it is a hologram all at the same time. Can someone explain this theory of mine with physics?

All the material things around me feel pretty solid. The virtual reality control software is pretty good, isn't it?

Wow I would say that it could be possible if you believe in a "matrix " type of world.
