According to the Daily Mail, the scientist spoke about an unusual theory of the origin of people, pointing out that each person can actually be a hologram.
53-year-old Cox noted that the universe may not be at all the way everyone is used to understanding it from textbooks.
“Answering the questions that Stephen Hawking asked more than 50 years ago, we came to the conclusion – and yes, I will say it out loud and stop – that we can be holograms,” said the physicist.
Presenter Ruth Langsford reacted to the scientist’s words.
“My mind was not ready for this. I was never good at science in school and I try very hard to understand your conclusions, but it blows my brain, ”she said.
Then Cox and the hosts changed the topic of communication, but at the end of the interview, Langsford returned to the topic.
“I am now wondering, am I really a hologram?” Hearing her, the physicist replied: “Yes, probably so.”
In the comments, many were amazed at this statement from the scientist. Some also started joking about this topic. “I’m a hologram Can someone come and turn me off? ” – the user wrote after watching the broadcast.
There were also those who thanked the physicist for prompting them to study new data about what the universe is.
