"Will there be Ramen noodles in Heaven? And since it is Heaven, would the Ramen noodles of necessity have to be healthy and not unhealthy? These are the questions that keep a Baron up nights." - Andrew

Whatever is here has to be there. It's a holographic universe thing.

Excerpt from an interview in National Geographic with Dr. Brian Greene, PhD physicist from Columbia University:

"In the final chapter of your book, you suggest that the world may be a hologram. That sounds very Matrix-like."

"It's a very speculative idea that seems to, strangely enough, naturally emerge from string theory. Basically, the fundamental laws of the universe don't really operate in the environment around us. They may operate on sort of a distant bounding surface and give rise to the familiar world that we experience in much the same way that a thin piece of plastic, when illuminated correctly—if it's a hologram—can yield a three-dimensional image.

It might be that the deep laws are more like the thin piece of plastic existing on a thin bounding surface. Everything we know might be akin to a holographic projection of those distant laws."
