Reality – Holodeck or World of Light?

Taking the Mandela Effect to the next step, what if we’re not talking about realities, but about experiences in various holodecks?  And, what if reality is a holodeck?

This video is in English, despite the initial French banter. If you take quantum science seriously and you’re interested in the idea of this being a holodeck, the juicy discussion starts at about 6:15 in this video.

If you have access to past Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes, the two involving Moriarty are Elementary, Dear Data (Season 2, Episode 3) and  Ship in a Bottle (Season 6, Episode 12).

Be forewarned: These quantum/reality concepts may offend some people, especially those working with literal Creationist beliefs.

And, when you get to the negative energy concept, around the 15:00 point where he’s talking about Dr. Richard Feynman’s theory and retrocausality, it may twist your thinking into a pretzel.

The book he’s discussing is available at Amazon, in hardcover and in Kindle.
