The holographic universe is the idea that we live in what is just a projection from a hologram.

The idea is that what we are “experiencing” is just an interpretation of a 2D hologram projection. That’s why our “universe” has a “wall” of sorts (the cosmic microwave background or CMB).
There is still a physical universe that exists.
A Simulation Universe would mean that the universe as we know it isn’t real, it’s an invention of a sort. We are living inside some sort of creation and all of it’s parameters and laws are created by someone/thing/group and it can be altered. We can be turned off or reset or whatever. THIS is the Matrix.
In the news lately there’s been lots of talk about the Holographic principle and how we might be living in a holographic universe and there’s lots of math and evidence to back this as well as experiments. People are confusing this with a Simulation Universe and they think we live in the Matrix and that the food you eat isn’t real and you can bend the laws of nature.
Not saying that we don’t live in a Simulation universe, just that the proof of a Holographic Universe doesn’t mean we’re in a simulation (it also doesn’t mean that we’re not).
Pretty simple stuff.

The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.
For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (via nedhepburn)
