1. A method for displaying a holographic object to accommodate a mixed reality environment including a physical environment, comprising:
providing a head-mounted display device configured to be worn by a user and operatively connected to a computing device, the head-mounted display device including a plurality of sensors and a display system;
receiving physical environment data from the physical environment via one or more of the sensors;
receiving the holographic object from a source, the holographic object associated with a content provider ID that identifies the source;
assigning a trust level to the holographic object based on the content provider ID that identifies the source;
if the trust level is less than a trust level threshold, then:
selecting a first set of safety rules based on the physical environment data, the safety rules providing different levels of display restrictions for the holographic object, and applying the first set of safety rules that provide a protective level of display restrictions for the holographic object; and
displaying the holographic object with a first level of realism via the display system according to the first set of safety rules;
if the trust level is greater than or equal to the trust level threshold, then:
selecting a second set of safety rules based on the physical environment data and applying the second set of safety rules that provide a permissive level of display restrictions for the holographic object; and
displaying the holographic object with a second level of realism greater than the first level of realism via the display system according to the second set of safety rules, wherein the first level of realism is a first blur amount of the object and the second level of realism is a second blur amount of the object.
