IS THE UNIVERSE PRODUCT OF A GREAT ILLUSION?

SIMULATIONS BACK UP THEORY 
THAT UNIVERSE IS A HOLOGRAM
www.nature.com - A team of physicists has provided some of the clearest evidence yet that our Universe could be just one big projection. In 1997, theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena proposed 1 that an audacious model of the Universe in which gravity arises from infinitesimally thin, vibrating strings could be reinterpreted in terms of well-established physics. The mathematically intricate world of strings, which exist in nine dimensions of space plus one of time, would be merely a hologram: the real action would play out in a simpler, flatter cosmos where there is no gravity. 
Maldacena's idea thrilled physicists because it offered a way to put the popular but still unproven theory of strings on solid footing - and because it solved apparent inconsistencies between quantum physics and Einstein's theory of gravity.

It provided physicists with a mathematical Rosetta stone, a 'duality', that allowed them to translate back and forth between the two languages, and solve problems in one model that seemed intractable in the other and vice versa. But although the validity of Maldacena's ideas has pretty much been taken for granted ever since, a rigorous proof has been elusive. In two papers posted on the arXiv repository, Yoshifumi Hyakutake of Ibaraki University in Japan and his colleagues now provide, if not an actual proof, at least compelling evidence that Maldacena’s conjecture is true. 
The findings “are an interesting way to test many ideas in quantum gravity and string theory”, Maldacena adds. The two papers, he notes, are the culmination of a series of articles contributed by the Japanese team over the past few years.

Ron Cowen, author of the article, explains that a ten-dimensional theory of gravity makes the same predictions as standard quantum physics in fewer dimensions. Nevertheless, the numerical proof that these two seemingly disparate worlds are actually identical gives hope that the gravitational properties of our Universe can one day be explained by a simpler cosmos purely in terms of quantum theory, says theoretical physicist Maldacena. The Vedic tradition explains that consciousness shapes our material world, the whole cosmos is interconnected and we are essentially holographic energy beings existing in a state of resonance with the scalar field of the cosmos. Some Vedic scholars says that the fact that this field has consciousness explains the power of mantras, prayer and intention. This consciousness is amplified when a large number of conscious people are involved focused with great intention on a single emotional thought (for example, pilgrims during a Kumbha Mela) chanting in unison a mantra. It is said that our brain is a hologram that is a part of an even larger hologram - the universe itself. The field interactions link the body and consciousness. We all have roots in the universe and the conscious mental activity exerts measurable effects on the physical world. That is why for the benefit of our inner world as well as the external surrounding us, we must engage with determination in chanting the Vedic mantras. We suggest this one to you, it is called the Maha Mantra: “Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.” (Editor's note).

WHAT DO THE VEDIC TEACHINGS TELL US? 
According to achintya bhedabheda, the individual self is a minute particle of will or consciousness - a sentient being - endowed with a serving tendency. This self is transcendental to matter and qualitatively one with Godhead, while quantitatively different. The inherent defect of smallness in size in the minute self in contrast to the quantitative superiority of Godhead makes the individual minute particle of consciousness prone to the influence of illusion. ... Living in illusion, the atomic soul sees himself as separate from the Godhead. As a result of imperfect sense perception he is caused to make false distinctions such as good and bad, happiness and distress. The minute self can also live in an enlightened state in complete harmony with the Godhead by the latter's grace - which is attracted by sincere petition or devotion. ... In this communion the self becomes one in purpose with the one reality and eternally serves that reality with no sense of any separateness from Godhead.
