BREAKING: The Universe is Not a Hologram

While looking to confirm the existence of Planck units--the smallest things in the universe--physicist Craig Hogan stumbled upon a 'fuzziness' at the quantum level that could suggest the universe might be "projected from a two-dimensional shell at its edge." In other words, we'd be living in a hologram emanating from the outermost reaches of the universe. Wired reports that researchers conducted tests with an advanced European satellite that debunked this theory. They did not detect the aforementioned fuzziness and instead only found contradictory evidence to Hogan's findings. Don't get too complacent; we could totally be, like, just in some guy's dream and when he wakes up--POOF--we'll all disappear. [Wired]
