In this article, the contention ?Universe is a hologram? of the holographic paradigm, and the east mysticism and quantum mechanics which are alleged to support this contention are studied in terms of philosophy of mind and it is stated that this contention is incorrect. In addition, it is emphasized that the contention in question, reducing the physical reality to the mental images, presents an understanding of reality which is reductionistic, one-sided, incoherent, far away from being able to persuade common sense, lacking reality and something one can claim to be completely ?imaginary? and ?mental imaginations?. Lastly, beside the criticism and analysis on problems (philosophical, scientific, and logical etc.), giving a general evaluation of the nature and ?fabric of reality?, the necessity of a ?new? understanding of reality is pointed out.
