i’m still trying to understand what “simulation” means – that it’s all in our heads somehow?
every computer we know of is built of parts, maybe the parts of our simulation are just the quarks, and atoms of our world. that would mean the word simulation here is really just computation.
rudy rucker wrote a great book about that idea:
i guess - writing this down – a simulation maybe implies you could stop it at any time ( our universe seems self-powered, and without a plug ), and perhaps that there exist a someone or someones to observe results. ( multi-dimensional beings disguised as lab mice? )
