"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players" - William Shakespeare.
From classical to relativity and from relativity to quantum physics, science has travelled a long distance to arrive at what once the great Shakespeare wrote or for that matter what hindu vedas had professed long ago.
Now the science too believes that matter can be created out of nothing, all it needs are vibes emanating from consciousness. In other words, the world is just an individual perception of conscious. It all is nothing but 'maya', an illusion or the Grand Design.
