Holographic universe/simulation (Aspect and other article about quantum holography)

Hello everyone, my main question is, do these 2 studies/ articles provide substantial proof that we live in a hologram or simulation?

Here is the first article title "The Universe as a Hologram": Holographic Universe

The main gist of it says "In 1982 a remarkable event took place. At the University of Paris a research team led by physicist Alain Aspect performed what may turn out to be one of the most important experiments of the 20th century. You did not hear about it on the evening news. In fact, unless you are in the habit of reading scientific journals you probably have never even heard Aspect's name, though there are some who believe his discovery may change the face of science.Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. It doesn't matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart.Somehow each particle always seems to know what the other is doing. The problem with this feat is that it violates Einstein's long-held tenet that no communication can travel faster than the speed of light. Since traveling faster than the speed of light is tantamount to breaking the time barrier, this daunting prospect has caused some physicists to try to come up with elaborate ways to explain away Aspect's findings. But it has inspired others to offer even more radical explanations.University of London physicist David Bohm, for example, believes Aspect's findings imply that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram." (Holographic Universe)

The second article is titled "Journal of Theoretics, Empirical Evidence Supporting Macro-Scale, Quantum Holography in Non-Local Effects" and here is the link: Journal of Theoretics.

Does the second article suggest or is saying that we live in a simulation or a hologram?

-So my main questions are, does Alain Aspect's 1982 study I mentioned above really prove that we live in a hologram or a simulation and does Alain Aspect's 1982 study show enough evidence for us to say that we do live in a hologram or in a simulation?

Lastly, does the second article about Quantum Holography etc show proof that we live in a hologram or simulated reality? Many thanks.

My personal interpretation of the bits a and pieces I have come across on this is that the holographic ideas are principally a mathematical transformation which allows the dimensionality of the problem to be reduced (by one D).
The Transform is essentially the same as the transform relating a holographic image to the holographic plate.
It has been found that applying this transform to quantum problems can give rise to alternative routes to solving the maths.

The rest of the ideas of "simulation" or "holographic boundaries" etc. are all unfounded extrapolations on a mathematical observation.

Interesting, thank you. So is it safe to say that this Alain Aspect 1982 study I linked and talked to about doesn't prove that we live in a simulation or hologram? It proves quantum entanglement and non locality but Alain's experiment doesn't prove that we live in a hologram, correct?

Thanks again.

I am by no means an expert in this, all I know comes from ordinary publications such as new scientist etc.
However physicists have shown that quantum entanglement is an inescapable experimentally demonstrable feature of reality.
It appears this mathematical treatment using a holographic analogy has shown some promise that it might be able to model this behavior.

It is obvious that there are some fairly glaring gaps in our understanding of reality, and the holographic idea is one of several approaches that are being explored to see where they lead.

I personally feel that the headline grabbing speculations about "simulations" and "holographic universes" are at best premature and are most likely bunkum.

However, it is clear that reality is very different from what our everyday experience would suggest and it may be that this holographic idea could lead us to a better understanding, once the proper analysis (by better brains than mine) has been completed.
Or it may turn out to be (yet another) dead end...
