I've always felt that what we perceive as "reality" is only a lower-dimensional shadow of a "higher reality".
Well, there is the theory of the holographic universe. However, in order for something to be a hologram, there has to be an original object. If this theory is/were true, then where the original object is is the real enigma.
"So in the computers memory they are real, but only as an algorithm. So there is structure off stage so to speak, but it is a fuzzy structure, not totally defined. Its depends upon your interaction in order to actualize its specifics. "
