A unique experiment at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory called the Holometer has started collecting data that will answer some mind-bending questions about our universe – including whether we live in a hologram.

“If we see something, it will completely change ideas about space we’ve used for thousands of years.” If space comes in 2-D bits with limited information about the precise location of objects, then space itself would fall under the same theory of uncertainty.

The instrument testing these limits is Fermilab’s Holometer, or holographic interferometer, the most sensitive device ever created to measure the quantum jitter of space itself.

Researchers analyze these fluctuations in the returning light to see if the beam splitter is moving in a certain way – being carried along on a jitter of space itself.

“If we find a noise we can’t get rid of, we might be detecting something fundamental about nature – a noise that is intrinsic to space-time,” said Fermilab physicist Aaron Chou, lead scientist and project manager for the Holometer.

A U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science laboratory, Fermilab is located near Chicago, Illinois, and operated under contract by the Fermi Research Alliance, LLC. Visit Fermilab’s website at www.

    IDK guys, my intuition and knowledge tells me there’s more to actual quantum physics than meets the eye. 😉 Echos and residual energy, we can even take photos of DNA and it’s residual imprint on space/time, why would souls not have that either? and yes I think souls are real…maybe that’s radical but even my rational brain tells me they would be and I was not raised in a religious home.

    retaining some consciousness after symptoms of death has absolutely zero bearing on proving any kind of afterlife. What HAS been proven is that DMT, which floods the brain in the final moments of dying, produces things like perceptions of out of body experiences, meeting aliens and deities, and artificially extends perception of time a great deal.

    There is no life after death. Never has been.

    lol all these fedora comments. There is life after death, your cells breakdown into simple components and eventually become part of other lifeforms. there yah go.
