The Holographic Universe
Physicists are discovering more and more evidence suggesting that the universe is holographic in nature. Elon Musk is a renowned name that believes ‘we live in a simulation’ and the concept has been discussed on well known mediums such as TED Talks.
It’s based on a number of principles. These include the idea that everything you experience is how your brain (referred to as ‘your consciousness filter for to experience this reality’) is decoding waves and electrical signals. Your brain perceives information in ‘the field’ to make up this reality.
For example, if you touch the surface of something, the sensation of feeling the surface is your brain decoding those signals into the sensation of touch. If you hear something, it is your brain decoding those signals into sound. If you see something with your eyes, your brain decodes those signals to show imagery and so on for each sense.
One famous experiment that is often referred to regarding the Holographic Universe is the Double Slit Experiment. This experiment shows that seemingly solid particles act as waves until observed by consciousness. The act of observing particles directly effects their behaviour (more can be read on this here). Former NASA physicist Tom Campbell also favours the Holographic Universe. He refers to the Double Slit Experiment when explaining why he believes that consciousness is the primary source of reality and matter is dependant on consciousness. This is because the act of conscious observation effects the way particles behave.
Nikola Tesla was quoted in saying, “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” Albert Einstein was quoted, “Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.” These are two of the greatest minds implying that matter is secondary to vibration (or waves).
Check out the videos below discussing this, starting with the World Science Festival.
Note that further down in the article, there are videos where physicists discuss that consciousness precedes the Big Bang and that consciousness is the creator of our reality. Also, there is more content on the Fibonacci Code/Golden Ratio; the mathematical nature of the universe.

The Fibonacci Sequence/Golden Ratio
Physicists explain the mathematical nature of the Universe. The videos below go into this in more detail. They discuss the Fibonacci Sequence/Golden Ratio (‘nature’s formula’). The image below partly shows why the sequence has been called ‘nature’s formula’:
The Fibonacci Sequence is as follows: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144 and on to infinity. Each number is the sum of the previous two. ‘This series of numbers is known as the Fibonacci numbers or the Fibonacci sequence. The ratio between the numbers (1.618034) is frequently called the golden ratio or golden number.’
