Our world may be a giant hologram – space – 15 January 2009 – New Scientist

that’s another good point. it’s the same as saying the universe is a computer. it may be some kind of self-generating organic thing which has computer-like qualities meshed with the organic ones. and then, the hologram thing, back to dimensions again. i am still not convinced that any dimensions actually exist. i think it is just a very convenient model. i say, if 3 dimensional means a space in which a minimum of 3 coordinates is necessary to define any point, but we live in an infinite volume of space, where is your starting reference point? and couldn’t you make a one dimensional model of the so-called three dimensional universe using a simple infinite string of integers? might not be very convenient for pilots, but it would indeed define all the points in the space.
