Teetered between Nerdvana and Tinderbox on this one, but settled on The Tinderbox since more discourse occurs here.

I can agree with that in a sense. In my view, all of this is essentially a hologram anyways haha.

That's probably the worst start to an article I've ever read

Wanted to stop reading there

The article just breaks down the findings. Read the paper for a very detailed analysis.
