Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory: Live in a Matrix?

We live in one Matrix; The Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory gathers information to examine whether our universe is ultimately a hologram, with the logic that what we observe is a three dimensional illusion in a two-dimensional world. Like when we watch TV, we see the characters in 3 dimensions, but our screen is two-dimensional.

For two years there is an ongoing study by the University of Bonn, which examines whether our universe is a computer simulation, and now another research institute is preparing to launch an almost similar experiment.

The researchers have the theory that all of the Universe's information can be divided into "pixels" that are as large as the Planck length unit (1.616 252 (81) × 10-35m). According to quantum theory (Heisenberg's uncertainty principle), it is impossible to know at the same time the position and velocity of the elementary particles. If the universe consists of two-dimensional bits whose size specifies specific information then it would not be feasible to apply the above principle.

So, techgear.gr says, researchers are investigating whether there is a finite limit on the Universe's ability to store information based on the number of these pixels.
The experiment is done using the Holometer, a unique precision hologram interferometer, which can measure infinitesimal vibrations (very small wavelengths).

They place two such interferometers very close together and send from each 1KW laser beam that passes through a beam separator that cuts them into two separate, vertical beams. They then return to the divider and reunite, displaying fluctuations in brightness when they encounter such vibrations.

Researchers analyze these fluctuations to see if the beam splitter moves in a certain way, incited by the supposed fundamental motion of the two-dimensional "pixels" of the Universe.

As Craig Hogan, head of the Fermilab Center for Particle Astrophysics and the Inventor of Theory, says, and Aaron Chou, head of the Holometer

"We want to see if space-time can be considered a quantum system, such as mass. If we notice a noise (vibration) not attributed to other sources (eg radio waves of electronic devices) and can not be cut off, perhaps we are facing something really fundamental to nature. A noise that is inherent in spacetime. If we are confirmed, it will change once and for all the perception we have of the Universe for thousands of years. "
