Work the Planck

According to quantum physics, Planck’s Constant is the smallest unit of measure in the universe, beyond which nothing can be further divided.  Scientists at the Fermilab are building a Holographic Interferometer, or Holometer, with which they intend to test this theory.  If true, it could mean that our entire dimension is a hologram, projected into 3D space like a pixelized image on your computer screen.  Heavy stuff, but Jeff and Anthony wonder if it is cause for existential crisis or if it would even really matter.   Of course, that’s exactly what holograms would say.
