Macroscopic Realism

  1. May 8, 2015 #1
    Is reality mind-dependent ? I saw a lot of videos on internet arguing that the 'holographic theory' proves that our world is an illusion created by our brains.. and every person has their own individual world in his brain...just like a movie, they use QM as a proof, and Tom Campbell as a reference..

    is true that QM proves something like that? (some experiment, or anything?)

    No, that is totally wrong.

    The holographic conjecture is conceptually not much different from saying that a localized function can also be described as a superposition of nonlocalizable sinusoids.
