Ever since the Loki series premiered, it has been Settling many questions that were left unanswered for a very long time. Loki episode 2 also answered this question in an amusing scene where Professor Loki is seen teaching agent Mobius and the TVA about his powers. 

Loki dealt with Mobius’ confusion between illusion projection and duplication casting. He disclosed that a replica is not just an illusion And that he acquires the power to project an identical look-alike. It’s safe to say that this is exactly what he did to fake his death in Thor The Dark World, creating a carbon copy of himself.

It’s persuading to ignore this skill of the God of mischief, deducing any differences between illusion casting and duplication projection are found by someone unimaginative. After all, Loki is the one which defined a body duplicate as a hologram. 

However, some previous trials have indicated there is a phenomenon of solid light with photons. These photos are particles of the electromagnetic spectrum, and when they are brought together tightly, they attain mass. This is a very common science fiction cliché, originated in everything from Doctor Who to Halo.

So Loki’s magical abilities may enable him to produce solid light holograms, and that would explain it was a solid duplicate of Loki who died at the hands of Kurse in Thor 2. Loki aims to impale Kurse through his chest, but he fails, and Kurse grabs him and stabs him with his blade.

This proves that the TVA is still not completely aware of Loki’s capabilities. Looks like they don’t understand Loki as well as they think they do. They didn’t know about Loki’s illusion casting and duplication Projection powers until he told them. Loki may use this ignorance of TVA for his good in the future.
