Is everything that we see or seem but a dream within a dream?
– Edgar Allen Poe

Apparently so, Edgar. Or rather, a movie. At least according to an article in New Scientist which states that our entire world may be a giant hologram.

Now I’m not going to pretend to understand ALL of the science here, but what I do know from this is downright intriguing. It’s great fodder for science fiction writing, while at the same time doing my head in. I just don’t think men were meant to comprehend beyond four dimensions.

The big question is . . . does it really change anything in our day to day lives? Not really.

But it’s cool, innit?
