So, the scientists have discovered that our Universe is a hologram.
We live in a Matrix.
The reality is projected to our mind, something like this:
Who is Enlightened?
Enlightenment is ever-present-never-changing and that is who you are. 'An enlightened person' is one who resides in this space that is ever-present-never-changing (that's all that is required). They observe their thoughts, people, environment, the world and are not affected by observing it.
Our mind is the "mechanism" that makes us "see" the illusion.
In meditation one can stop their mind and stop the illusion.
