Some elite scientists are saying that we may be living in a hologram. The new theory emerges from advancements in string theory and quantum mechanics. The theory comes out of a debate between world-class physicists including Stephen Hawking, around the behavior of information entering a black hole.

During the debate physicists ended up stumbling on to a paradox that led to this amazing theory, in which they say we all may be living in a hologram!

This video shows the short and the skinny on this emerging and fascinating theory.

In this video a panel of some of the smartest physicists in the world discuss this new theory of theirs, in a hour and a half special at the World Science Festival.
