    Yup, it is.

    The probability is very high.

    We live in a computer simulated 2 dimensional holographic universe

    :2 dimensional holographic universe: FACT!

    the other part will be tested and re-created over the next decade

    Still, anything metaphysical is unknowable.

    Next question, how many nested levels of simulations are we in?

    The good old cogito ergo sum is good enough for my existence.

    the first attempt to prove this will be to recreate an atom as a computer model and measure it's wave length or signature and measure it against our own universes atoms.

    the theory predicts it will be the same.

    Any possible simulation can possibly simulate any possible knowledge we have on the universe.

    It has been proven that metaphysics cannot be proven.

    And what if our understanding of the universe is valid only in this simulation?

    Science has limitations.

    This usually works to test whether you are in a dream:

    * Take a book from your back pocket.
    * Read page 1, read page 2, go back to page 1

    If the contents changed since you last read it, you may be in a lucid dream.

    USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    It never ceases to amaze me.
    Scientist will entertain that we are a spec of dust on an even greater spec of dust under someone's finger nail in another dimension.

    Or that Mankind was kick started by extra terrestrials.

    and now this is all just a computer simulation.

    But Jesus is a big NO NO!

    "Scientists plan test to see if the entire universe is..."

    and if according to their test, what if it comes back positive?

    Will someone pull the plug, or will we wait five to twenty years for someone to contradict his findings?

    You DO all realize the universe is just one massive reality show don't you?

    Keep it entertaining else we be canceled!
