I'm not surprised..
To Clear things up...

Mueller has been one of the most respected individuals on the planet over the last 20 years.

Mueller is a Republican

Mueller was appointed by Republicans

Mueller doesn't determine if someone is guilty, The Judge and Jury do!

Get it!!!!

There might be an infinite number of stars and planets and suns and everything.

There might be an infinite number of replicas indentical to each of us.

If you envision the edge of the universe, what is outside it? For how far? What next?

.....it's a hologram.       :tongue2:

You do realize that that's not so tongue-in-cheek.  The theory is, loosely, the holographic universe, discussed in basic form under the wikipedia article about the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holographic_principleholographic principle[/url].  Put in very basic terms,
Quote
[I ]n a larger and more speculative sense, the theory suggests that the entire universe can be seen as a two-dimensional information structure "painted" on the cosmological horizon, such that the three dimensions we observe are only an effective description at macroscopic scales and at low energies.

If correct then, yes, this would all be, in essence, a hologram.
