In order to explain the "incongruities between Albert Einstein's theory of relativity and some of Max Planck's discoveries about the nature of matter," scientists are testing out the possibility that we might be living in a "Matrix-style holographic illusion" where everything in the universe is a two-dimensional hologram.

In other words, space, and the universe, might not be entirely definite—locations of things might not be completely definite and might be transmitted in quantum bits that vary ever so slightly. He likens it to the idea of "pixels" in a photo. From afar, you see one picture, but if you zoom in far enough, you see tiny points that make up the larger whole.

Space, and everything that exists, might be the same, he theorizes. In other words, if you zoom in far enough on matter, on space, to a far-beyond subatomic level, you might see that existence is similarly blurry, and always moving slightly.
