if it is then that means 'science' is researching an illusion, which makes 'sciemce' flawed by deafult.

I will endeavor to answer the question.

* The world is real.

* Science is only as flawed as the humans attempting to apply it (or interpret it) in the study or research of the world.

That said, humans have been known to view or perceive things in a manner that is not true (nor even remotely close to reality), so in a manner of speaking, for them the world is an illusion.

Examples:

a. A young fellow falls head-over-heels in love with a girl who he believes to be a wonderful, flawless, virtuous angel.
In reality, she is a liar, a deceiver, and a cruel manipulator.
In essence, the young man is building his world around an illusion of who she is, not around the reality of what she is.

b. Millions of voters live in an altered state of reality wherein they believe that their political Parties and associated politicians are virtuous, truthful, and concerned about the good of the nation and the taxpayers.
In reality, their elected representatives are power-hungry, tax-and-spend crooks who only care about themselves and their cronies and campaign contributors.
These millions of voters are not living in the real world, but are rather existing in a state of denial and delusion.

c. Many men and women believe that they themselves are attractive, charming, witty, and interesting.
In reality, they are boorish, arrogant, boring, and spectacularly-unfunny.
The people around them (friends and family) only contribute to their illusion by never telling them the truth. (Out of a fear of offending, or a fear of causing hurt or pain.)

Does this make sense?
:?

No, but I will be more specific.

If one does some research in this area it really seems this world is an illusion.

By that I mean that it is a hologram!

So, actually the question becomes, are we living in a hologram?

According to some scientists we do.

If we do then science is into some strange things,

Why would science be flawed? If the illusion has internally consistent rules, then science is simply the study of those rules.

Nope, the study of an illusion, hence not real.

Reality is perception. Illusion is deception.

There is that.

But to prolong the illusion you will find it helps to do nothing that science says will stop you.

Oh How do you know? scientist disagree with you!

Uh.....because, one, technology hasn't advanced to the point where that would be possible; two, you stole the idea from the Matrix; and three, it's just flat out dumb

And as I have said, science is on its way to see the world as hologram

Furthermore, in some experiment computercode was discovered in the fabric of the matter!

suggesting that this world is made by computercode, hence artificial.

And maybe we have no technology, but what about alien races far more advanced then us?

Why not?

A projection in a single location isn't not the same as the entire ****ing world. Do you have any idea how complex that would have to be?

This belongs in the philosophy section, Though I congradulate the OP on finally making a new thread that doesnt actually belong in the CT section.

Yes,

But if this is possible why not the whole world.

Lots of clues it is

Congratulating me about that is very stupid and you have no clue what you are talking about.

and the computercode found in the fabric of matter is also very revealing as well.

And NASA scientists ( not that I trust these idiots) say we are living in a hologram made by aliens!

No kidding!
