I don't buy it, but then I'm not a theoretical physicist.
Linking an article about a scientific theory, and having a poll on the site that asks for opinions about that article, does nothing to the credibility of the source. That's not to say I believe everything I read on drudge or the articles he links to either. Nor does it have a ****ing thing to do with the topic of this thread.
The universe that you have created in your mind is a simulation based on your perceptions, as is the one I have created in mine. I am going to go out on limb and assume that there is a real universe that exists outside of our minds but I have no way to prove it. Both and neither.
