Yeah but a computer is always limited by space. The only relation would be the Universe is also limited by space. But the results are much different.
Within a computer, the random mountains in the background are just pictures. Unless they are programmed in they will never exist for anything other
than a cosmetic purpose.
Where as the Universe is Endless. As far as we can tell there is no end to the depth of intricate nature of existance itself.
Computers will always be limited by what is programmed inside. A.I might beable to decide its own choices But will always be limited by its hardware.
If we want to relate to reality. Then yes molecules are simulations of the matter and energy being prepelled.
When objects spin very fast they create surface area along their path. Even if the objects are tiny as long as the speed is equal to the surface area
expansion the object will appear much larger than its actual size.
That is why atoms are made of mostly empty space. There is no solid *Shell* that makes up an atom. Rather the objects that orbit a neucleus creates an
atom. Or rather any bonding pairs of sub-atomic particles form *atoms* which chain into molecules. Some particles will remain in their magnetically
synch pairs such as light which is an electron travelling with a photon.
We can't exactly see pure electrons unless they are rapidly combining with something. Like electricty that seeks a ground.
With computers we can simulate a mind. But this mind will always have boundaries unless we feed it ideas where it can draw up conclusions. However the
human mind is not limited by this boundary the same way machines are. A machine can learn much faster but as for imagining completely forign ideas
would be very unlikely.
Where as humans can draw ideas up from dreams of psychotic attacks of hallucinations. Many inventions that have changed society into what it is now
today were brough about in such a way. Nicola Tesla is not exempt from this but is a pretty good example.
Now i brought up some good points but im going to mention the paradox crushers.
Paradox crusher number 1.
If we live in a simulated universe where our universe exists within a computer. Then that means that such computer outside our universe is probably
running on another computer.
Since this would be the nature of the universe, then all universes would be spawned from an infinite creation of universes all spawning to one
universe or computer.
Should any of these computers fail, with a probability of infinity since the chain of universes above and below us would thus be infinity as well then
that means that it's impossible to go back to the very first computer because the nature of any and all universes come from computers. So since
universes do expand and destroy. Even if we want to think about the first universe. It is irrelivant. As all it takes is one of the simulated
universes simulating our own to destroy itself and break this chain of simulated universes among the infinite ammount of simulations.
Paradox crusher number 2 Why would it matter if this is a simulated universe or not? we can already estimate that the probability of advanced life
existing in the universe is garenteed. So are humans just a program or the original programers? What grants us authority over everything in space and
time over say, another alien that may actually be the ones simulating it? In that case what does it mean for us the programs? If we have no chance of
existing as a real living entity? What about the aliens that are being simulated here from the universe beyond ours? Are they also programs? and not
the original creators of their universe within a computer matrix?
And the chain goes on and on.
Infinitly actually. And since each computer exists within technology of each universe. The probability is definite that our universe would be cut off
by say even an *In game* occurance* since all computer simulations branch off of other simulations infinitely.
However our universe can't just be one matrix. If it is that's just messed up.
Maybe computers put us in this matrix? That would be the only explaination. And they are feeding off our memories and energy by hording us within
energy harvesting towers.
Of course, To get that far ahead would be like.... Well Matrix the movie.
Have you seen any Mr. Andersons guarding this place? Does the universe run on windowsXP?
BTW thinking of a simulated universe will only drive you insain. Unless you think you are Neo. In that case if you break out of the matrix to fight
the robots from harvesting our energy and life sustainance let me know.
We will need to reclaim our planet back somehow. Of course i'm being serious if you are even considering a simulated universe where we exist outside
of this one Then yeah. TOTALLY.
The entire universe HAS to revolve around us right? There's no way the universe can't revolve around us? That would be insain if it it didn't
