We might live in a 2-D world - we just think it's 3D

That's one theory researcher Craig Hogan wants to test by using two of the world's most precise clocks being built now. Craig is a particle physicist at Fermilab in Illinois. The clocks he'll be looking at have 131-foot long arms. They scan back and forth to see where space and time separate? I'm not a physicist, here, but really? Two long clock arms can tell if we live in a 2-D material world?

We sat around this morning trying to wrap our heads around this one. Check out the article and see how you do with it.

I mean, if this really big clock can alter our sense of reality, then everything we thought we knew might be wrong. An innocent children's pizza party, for instance, could be something warped and disturbing. What would THAT be like?
