I read a little about it and the concept is not that farfetched. They are trying to measure the "graininess" of time and space with the idea that if the universe is made of digital "pixels" the resolution must have some limit and so at some point they should be able to see one individual pixel.

The question is: What is our reality and could it be a "virtual" reality that has been created by some higher form of intelligence or by "God" with it's own set of rules that are more or less arbitrary, but fits together logically so it makes sense to us (accept at the quantum level).
Personally, I think the human perspective is just like looking through a pinhole and drawing conclusions from what we see. We have accepted our reality without question, reminds me of how we accept the dream reality, until we wake up of course. I think it's healthy for us to start questioning the nature of our reality, even if we don't understand it.
