One of the most fundamental questions we as a species have had since the first flickers of consciousness and self-awareness sparked awake and fluttered within our minds is that of what our reality is. 
What is the nature of our world, our universe, our consciousness? What is our place in this universe and why we are here? What is the nature of our reality? Is it even real at all? 
These are things that have captivated us and driven us to explore our world, and which have captured the tireless pondering of scientists and philosophers throughout the ages. Yet there are no easy answers, and as we have reached out in our unrelenting journey to understand our world and universe, even with our increasing technology these are profound questions which continue to evade us. 
In our efforts to try and make sense of reality there have been various ideas, theories, and philosophies that have sprung up in our attempts to comprehend it, and some of these have turned out to be rather surreal indeed.  

The Simulation 

Professor Kostas Skenderis of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton explains: 
“Imagine that everything you see, feel and hear in three dimensions (and your perception of time) in fact emanates from a flat two-dimensional field. The idea is similar to that of ordinary holograms where a three-dimensional image is encoded in a two-dimensional surface, such as in the hologram on a credit card. However, this time, the entire universe is encoded!” 
Although not an example with holographic properties, it could be thought of as rather like watching a 3D film in a cinema. We see the pictures as having height, width and crucially, depth – when in fact it all originates from a flat 2D screen. The difference, in our 3D universe, is that we can touch objects and the ‘projection’ is ‘real’ from our perspective. 
In recent decades, advances in telescopes and sensing equipment have allowed scientists to detect a vast amount of data hidden in the ‘white noise’ or microwaves (partly responsible for the random black and white dots you see on an un-tuned TV) left over from the moment the universe was created.  
Using this information, the team were able to make complex comparisons between networks of features in the data and quantum field theory. They found that some of the simplest quantum field theories could explain nearly all cosmological observations of the early universe. 
Perhaps our human senses are deceiving us, maybe existence is an illusion, and reality isn't real. How do we really know that everything we see and touch is not just a construction of our mind? 
What is real?  
How can we be certain that the universe around us actually exists? And how can we know that the world we see matches what anyone else experiences? Imagine a virtual reality headset, everything you see is in the headset, however your reality originates from outside your headset. This is the same as your experiences of how you perceive reality, it comes from something outside of your known perception. 
The universe is a hologram. 
The amount of information that can be stored in a region of space is proportional to the region's surface area, rather than its volume, a property known as the holographic principle. One possible implication is that reality is actually two dimensional, and the three dimensional world is merely an illusion, which would explain the strangeness of quantum mechanics. 
Human senses are fallible. What people think they perceive is actually filtered and processed by the brain to construct a view of our outside world. Normally, this filtering is helpful, allowing people to sort important information from the barrage of data that comes in every minute from our environment. 
But this filtering ability can become a weakness, as it often does when we're watching a magician. A good magician will tap into deceptions that trick perception. 
Professor Skenderis comments: “Holography is a huge leap forward in the way we think about the structure and creation of the universe. Einstein’s theory of general relativity explains almost everything large scale in the universe very well, but starts to unravel when examining its origins and mechanisms at a quantum level. Scientists have been working for decades to combine Einstein’s theory of gravity and quantum theory. Some believe the concept of a holographic universe has the potential to reconcile the two. 
Scientists now hope their study will open the door to further our understanding of the early universe and explain how space and time emerged. 
Protoconsciousness, is a building block out of which consciousness is constructed. 
The theory posits “A primordial state of brain organization that is a building block for consciousness” (Hobson 2009). ...  
Hobson insists further that protoconsciousness then continues throughout life, especially during REM sleep dreaming, functioning in support of waking consciousness. 


The REAL Reality  
Properties of an affine 2D encoded space with information projecting everything we see and experience as reality. 
Beyond our universe 
Everything in the universe is information made up of bits of information and units of time. The universe had a beginning and will eventually end so in that instance this universe time is not infinite, however infinity has a boundary, the boundary expands infinitely and is connected to infinite universes. 
Theoretical physicists and astrophysicists, investigating irregularities in the cosmic microwave background (the ‘afterglow’ of the Big Bang), have found there is substantial evidence supporting a holographic explanation of the universe. 
The researchers, from the University of Southampton (UK), University of Waterloo (Canada), Perimeter Institute (Canada), INFN, Lecce (Italy) and the University of Salento (Italy), have published findings in the journal Physical Review Letters. A holographic universe, an idea first suggested in the 1990s, is one where all the information, which makes up our 3D ‘reality’ is contained in a 2D surface beyond our known universe within a boundary. The principles are the same as a 'Black Hole' scientific explination, where information is never lost. 
Reality is the sum or aggregate of all that is real or existent within a system, as opposed to that which is only imaginary. The term is also used to refer to the ontological status of things, indicating their existence. In physical terms, reality is the totality of a system, known and unknown. 
Reality is an illusion: Everything is energy and reality isn't real. A real matrix is a matrix whose elements consist entirely of real numbers. The set of real matrices is sometimes denoted. We're living in a simulation. Elon Musk, has argued that more likely than not, we're all living in a simulation. 
The future already exists and those three ways we separate time, past, present, and future, are nothing more than an illusion created by our minds. This is the picture of the universe that emerged from Einstein's theory of relativity. This is possible because of the relationship between space, time, and motion. 
Depending on our position and speed, time can appear to move faster or slower relative to others in a different part of space-time. And for astronauts on the International Space Station, they get to age just a tiny bit slower than people on Earth. That's because of time-dilation effects. 
The universe being one large black hole and everything as we know it is being projected from a 2D surface, information stored which has already been played out before and will be infinitely played out again and again. 
The universe exists one part in ten to the one hundred and twenty decimal places or one part in a trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, and if one part was altered the universe would not exist. 
The universe is one of an infinite number with finite hyper spheres with connected boundaries. Our universe is only one part of your real reality, everything here is predetermined, because there is no need for free will, in the grand scheme of things you will however experience everything that can possibly happen, because when you die from this universe your reality will be played out again and again in other points of reality.  
Particles act differently in the brain due to a higher temperature, so dreams can sometimes reflect not just a little of the past, present and future but images from alternate realities as these dimensions all coexist. It is quite right that anyone can experience hallucinations, this sometimes happens when one's sight becomes impaired. A partially sighted person could develop excited brain activity creating these visual images. It's the brain working overtime to compensate for the loss of sight. These hallucinations shouldn't be confused with quantum dreaming. 
The Real Reality 
Space-time is a fabric, the illusion of time, past present and future. The sea of endless universes connect like bubbles stretching into a limitless expanse of infinity. 
Every outcome exists within this interwoven fabric of space-time, it's continuous, smooth, and gets curved and deformed by the presence of matter and energy.  
The past, present and future, everything that can happen will happen woven into this fabric, it's something within from which something else originates.  
The dimensions outside the universe memory is a dimension which is not accessible, however it does exist, we can only access the dimensions within our internal universal system.  
Our real reality is programmed and stored within the fabric of space-time, our coded instructions for the automatic performance of what we call reality. 
Almost everyone has had what seems to be some form of psychic experience involving an element which cannot quite be explained. Perhaps you have thought of an old friend, when suddenly he or she phones you for the first time in months; or somehow you just ‘knew’ that something terrible was going to happen or had happened to someone very close to you. 
Predicting the future, while many people believe that such abilities are somehow linked with the supernatural, most modern practitioners claim that ESP powers lie dormant in almost all of us, and that training is all it takes to bring them out. Psychics argue that ESP is primary sense like touch or taste, and bears no relation to intelligence or education. Evidence in wild beasts which sense danger and changes in the weather, or in pets that travel long distances to find their owners, is a gift which mankind has somehow forsaken along the road of evolution. 
Controlled scientific experiments have shown that mind messages can be sent over vast distances. Such telepathy is thought to be easier between people who know each other very well, as shown by the many cases of brothers and sisters and twins. Try this experiment yourself, you can make your own ‘zener’ cards, they usually come in packs of 25, but you can make your own experiments with the five main cards – circle, star, wave, square and a cross. One person mentally pictures an image in their mind while the other person tries to guess the correct image. 
The Tarot cards is one of the most ancient and revered systems of divination, they have been used successfully for hundreds of years to reveal the secret self and predict the future with astonishing accuracy. They operate as a medium which attunes itself to the deep psychic reverberations of the participant. 
By showing respect, and by showing faith, the subject enables the cards to become aware of hidden feelings and preoccupations, and then to apply this knowledge to specific future events. When the results are interpreted, personal destiny unveiled. 
There are many psychics who claim to be on friendly terms with the spirit world and there are many more people who have seen or heard a ghost. Spirits come in all guises, kindly or terrifying, sad or angry, bringing comforting messages or warnings of disaster. The apparitions that haunt our stately homes, the battlefields of past centuries or the high seas are hard to investigate; they refuse to appear to order and seldom stay to answer questions. They may be ghosts of the dead, ’psychic photographs’ projected into the present or even tricks of the mind but whatever the explanation they continue to fascinate generation after generation. 
The ‘laying on of hands’ is the method the Christians use to heal the sick, some believe that health can be restored by the casting out unclean spirits, and the belief that a magnetic ‘fluid or force’ worked the miracle. 
For many years psychic healers mentioned seeing a field of light around people they were healing. The light appeared in various colours. Kirlian photography shows the different fields of electric light, passing a mild electrical current through a person’s hand, and then taking a photograph. The colour changes according to the amount of psychic energy, which alters according to the state of mind. 
This is a way many believe proves the existence of ‘auras’. In the light of recent research, experts now believe that our bodily functions are controlled by an electro magnetic energy, a sort of life force which exists in our body, and that when its flow of energy is out of balance, we feel run down and depleted of energy.
