ANY holographic or any display has a source running things. Where is the 'machinery' running the universe? Find that, and you have all your answers.

Not speaking for all those who follow Christ, but that is one of the premises of the Jesus figure. He was the son of man which is the representation of his higher self in the heavens. Think of yourself as a sock puppet and your real self is acting out its thoughts in this world which is a matrix.
The world itself is just the working end of the pantograph and the real world is the stylus.

The holograms you find on credit cards and banknotes are etched on two-dimensional plastic films. When light bounces off them, it recreates the appearance of a 3D image. In the 1990s physicists Leonard Susskind and Nobel prizewinner Gerard 't Hooft suggested that the same principle might apply to the universe as a whole. Our everyday experience might itself be a holographic projection of physical processes that take place on a distant, 2D surface.
The "holographic principle" challenges our sensibilities. It seems hard to believe that you woke up, brushed your teeth and are reading this article because of something happening on the boundary of the universe. No one knows what it would mean for us if we really do live in a hologram, yet theorists have good reasons to believe that many aspects of the holographic principle are true.
