‘The machine that could spot a missing dimension: US Government begins mind bending experiment to find out if our universe is a 2D HOLOGRAM
- Experiment probes the limits of the universe’s ability to store information
- Information about everything in our universe could be encoded in tiny packets in two dimensions
- Results could ‘completely change ideas about space’
A unique experiment at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory has started collecting data about whether we exist in a hologram.
Called the Holometer, the experiment will test a theory that everything in our universe is 3D.
Experts likely the theory to us being characters on a television show who do not know that their seemingly 3D world exists only on a 2D screen.
The information about everything in our universe could actually be encoded in tiny packets in two dimensions, the researchers say.
‘We want to find out whether space-time is a quantum system just like matter is,’ said Craig Hogan, director of Fermilab’s Center for Particle Astrophysics and the developer of the holographic noise theory.’
