In the words of The Matrix: "there is no spoon". I know this is a radical belief system and impossible to prove in a scientific manner and I won't attempt to prove it. But there is no question about the fact that the world we know and experience must be created with our senses and we are not capable of experiencing physical reality as it truly is.
I think life here on earth is in one way or another a "virtual reality" much like lucid dreams and in a sense, is a simulation. We are all participating together to manifest our physical reality and agree on the rules that operate in it so it is very stable.
What you're referring to here is Tom Campbell's "My Big TOE".
He posits that this is a digital, virtual reality... and the statement "there is no spoon", reflects his known that what we experience in this reality is just "data", which our consciousness processes in order to experience this reality. Experiencing another "reality" (aka the dream reality or somewhere else) is a matter of switching data streams to that reality.
