The Universe is a giant parabolic mirror: stars and planets are mirages!
The Moon and the stars are mirages/holograms due to the fact that the universe is a a giant dome, super reflective "gas/glass" dome which represents and acts like a holographic parabolic mirror. The celestial bodies are not where we see them. They are in reality holographic projections or reflections off the parabolic "mirror".



"Like a hall of mirrors, the apparently endless universe might be deluding us. The cosmos could, in fact, be finite. The illusion of infinity would come about as light wrapped all the way around space, perhaps more than once--creating multiple images of each galaxy. A mirror box evokes a finite cosmos that looks endless. The box contains only three balls, yet the mirrors that line its walls produce an infinite number of images. Of course, in the real universe there is no boundary from which light can reflect. Instead a multiplicity of images could arise as light rays wrap around the universe over and over again. From the pattern of repeated images, one could deduce the universe's true size and shape."

True. Empty space itself divides itself into concentric lenses which focus the wave in tandem with wave projection from the eyes

It is NOT utter bullshit. It is completely possible if you think about it with an open mind. The astronomers cannot disprove this theory either as all they do is just observing the reflections. You can observe as much as you want, you cannot prove it's not a hologram just by observing it. The dome is indeed quite big, but not infinite and not like it is believed now ~14 billion light years.

Here is where the conspiracy starts, as according to this hypothesis all the space probes to the Moon, planets etc are fake. They cannot be real as the celestial bodies are just reflections and not located where we're observing them.

Not entirely true, space time is curved. For example; when you look up at the stars, due to the time it takes for their light to reach your eyes & since they are in continuous motion, they are no longer in the position that you see them. This effect is magnified massively when it applies to very distant objects at apparent distances of millions or billions of light years. In some cases the object might no longer even exist. What's to say that the light from these objects isn't curved right back round on itself multiple times?

Our perceived Universe really isn't as it appears & hall of mirrors is a very good analogy. Maybe it's toroidal & rolls/rotates kind of like a giant smoke ring?

Thanks for the post. However, I am inclined to believe in a more extreme scenario in which the stars are not actual physical objects but holograms precisely due to the mirror nature of the universe. All the "celestial" bodies are perhaps objects located around the periphery of the system and the light is reflected to create the illusion of them being somewhere far away hanging in nothingness. Maybe the Earth, the planets and the stars are part of the same plane of objects which are indeed physically located and existent, but the light we see in the sky is not where they are and is quite similar to a hologram image. I know there have been probes sent in deep space and so on, but I don't buy it. The ordinary people cannot be sure of any of it, so to me the universe could really be as I already described. All the satellites and ISS are just above the plane, nothing can go much further as nothing exists much further, you would just glide along the dome on the inside creating the illusion of gravitating.

Interesting...reminds me of the Egyptian Sky Goddess Nut:

Nut was the goddess of the sky and all heavenly bodies, a symbol of protecting the dead when they enter the after life. According to the Egyptians, during the day, the heavenly bodies—such as the sun and moon—would make their way across her body. Then, at dusk, they would be swallowed, pass through her belly during the night, and be reborn at dawn.

Nut is also the barrier separating the forces of chaos from the ordered cosmos in the world. She was pictured as a woman arched on her toes and fingertips over the earth; her body portrayed as a star-filled sky. Nut’s fingers and toes were believed to touch the four cardinal points or directions of north, south, east, and west.

Kind of agree with the overall idea, believe that stars are mirrors. We're in a holographic school, a part of the screen. Its like an movie or roll of film we project into without memory, in order to purify flaws and progress. We're all infinite parts of infinity.
