It has been said for a long time, that we are the creators of our Gods.

If we do live in a type of simulation: perhaps we have also created the creator?

This could be conceivable, in a few different ways. Here is one possibility:
Perhaps our reality is created by Humans, far in the future. Without exception, they will be the descendant children of somebody alive today. Therefore: we have created them.

Perhaps ancestry simulations could be sold like video games. So say a person loved and adored their grandmother, but they knew that she had a miserable life, and suffered very much. So the person buys an ancestry simulation, where all of the people are random NPC's, but their own ancestor's lives are modified, to be wonderful and peaceful.

Ever meet someone who lives a seemingly charmed life? They become very self-confident, because everything they do works-out great!
So maybe we're stuck in their simulation, and if we are miserable: our descendants hate us, or can't afford to buy an ancestry simulation.

Anyways: just fun stuff to contemplate.

Wow, nice thread.

This still begs the question of who made (created) our creator's creator.

A game this bad could only have one creator...

If we ever were to stumble across the correct answer to those questions, here's what happens....

Blinding flash of light.
Big puff of smoke.
Total darkness.

As the smoke starts to clear and your eyes adjust to the gloom, you'll see a light approaching.
Its pink neon, and as it comes closer you start to make out words.....and it gets closer and closer and stops just as it fills your entire field of vision.
And the sign says.....

Level Two.

Thanks.
Indeed: who created the creator, has yet to be solved.
Turtles all the way down?

The Great Programmer coded the universe in the time before analog.
and it was good.

Hmmm. Do you think we should rewrite our wills, and leave more to our children?

Perhaps, in the wisdom of the Creator: they gave us tacos.

Did you just create The Great Programmer?

I find a great connect from the subject of your title to what you discuss. I'll not venture to the body of thread but siimply give you the most reasonable answer to your title: If we live in a simulation, who or what is our Ceator?

The obvious answer to that question is our Programmer is the who or what.

The Great Programmer In The Sky!

There's another theory that if the answer is ever actually, entirely understood, the whole universe will collapse in on itself until its a single tiny dot.
Following that there is a Big Bang and the whole process starts all over again.

Keep a towel close and never be cruel to a Gin and tonic.

If so: then we shall never know.

Has The Great Programmer In The Sky mad a gin and tonic constellation?

Once you find out who creator is you ask....who created creator? Who created creators creator and so on.

take an ice pick and drive it into your hand. If this life is a simulation you wont feel a thing. If it is real you will feel a lot of pain and will need to go to a doctor when you are done pulling the pick out of your hand.

If those are the rules of your simulation: why do you think those are the only possible rules, for any type of simulation?

Sorry to disappoint you: but not all of us have an ice-pick laying around these days.

Hey!! Maybe my descendants knew someone would suggest this to me, and so removed all ice-picks from my surroundings!!

Maybe they're trying to get you to leave them some goodies, then your experience could change?
