Are we real or just an illusion of 2-dimensional data?

Dear and Respected Brilliant Friends,

Brian Greene has said in his book, 'The Fabric of the Cosmos' that the world is a Three-Dimensional hologram of the 2-D world, and all the 2-dimensional information is stored on the ridges of Black Hole, like heavenly bodies...Well if we send something, suppose an atom inside a Black Hole, the atom would be lost, stretched by forces of gravity, until it is diminished. But the 2-d data of the atom will be stored on the walls of the Black Hole in the form of digits and codes. How could this be possible?..If it is possible, what is the mechanism that powers it? Does this also mean that we, our earth and everything in the universe is just an illusion of the real 2-d data?

What is everything we think is reality is just a dream for the actual reality? Gabriella Herrera · 1 year, 10 months ago

This is so highly unlikely, I wouldn't even consider it a possibility. For one thing, the "edges" of a black hole are about as solid as the rest of of outer space. They are an illusion that is made like this: Nothing can escape a black hole, not even light. That is why a black hole looks completely black. The bright "edge" is literally the point of no return. The reason it looks white is because of the huge amount of light gathered there. Benji Blair · 2 years, 7 months ago

Actually it is more probable that we are just projection of X-dimensional data, where X>4 Nicolae Sapoval · 3 years, 4 months ago
