The Holographic Nature of Reality

We could be living in a hologram according to some quantum physicists. Everything is a 3 dimensional projection of information that in reality lives on a 2 dimensional surface. Moreover, scientists have equations that seem to prove reality is a 2 dimensional structure projected onto a cosmic screen and the goal of researchers is to discover who controls or what laws control that screen...If they can control that information that gets projected, then they can control all information and all social reality.

Let us remind ourselves what the holographic principle is. The holographic principle is a property of string theories and a supposed property of quantum gravity that states that the description of a volume of space can be thought of as encoded on a boundary to the region—preferably a light-like boundary like a gravitational horizon. First proposed by Gerard t'Hooft, it was given a precise string-theory interpretation by theoretical physicist Leonard Susskind who combined his ideas with previous ones of t 'Hooft and Charles Thorn. 

As pointed out by Raphael Bousso, Thorn observed in 1978 that string theory admits a lower-dimensional description in which gravity emerges from it in what would now be called a holographic way. In a larger sense, the theory suggests that the entire universe can be seen as a two-dimensional information structure "painted" on the cosmological horizon.

Sounds like an abstract discussion with no foundation other than it being a good exercise for the social imagination. Precisely... The only one thing we can be sure of. The bigger question for a sociologist like me is why we seek to imagine this, design equations in our imagination to arrive at agreement with and among other social imaginations. You see, social reality is information and nothing more. Are we just discovering this? Are we and should we be curious as to who or what is the source of all information. Seems so... that is the latest pursuit.  

*God's social imagination was here before us... we are discovering it as it is a larger reality; we are discovering a larger portion of our imagination which is in His ever endless imagination.
