Is it a simulation if you are personally and operationally responsible for co-creating your physical reality?

Why would we live in a simulation , if a species or civilisation was advanced enough to create a simulated universe with everyone being conscious free agents , then what would they possibly need to simulate to get an answer ?

when you have the power to simulate an entire universe , then you should already know the answer to the reason you need to make a simulation in the first place !

Seems a bit daft to me !

its not a simulation its just a #in mystery !

That would be much like people in our world building a sports video game when we have people who actually play the sport.

Wouldn't happen.

Im sorry Im not sure I understand your point, as we have plenty of that here !

lots of sports have video games simulations of the real thing , and lots of people who play the sports play the games too !

My point was, if you can simulate an entire universe with consciousness , then why would you need to simulate anything to get results when you could just obtain the results from the original universe . Unless somehow they lost the data when they switched to GDPR , they #ed up and deleted the original hard drive data !

Maybe to understand different universes or how change affects a universe. Watching a simulated universe could be a past time, much like TV or music. Lots of possibilities.

but a simulated universe implies that there was a real universe or real universes at one point, or currently , before the necessity for it to be modeled arose !

So why simulate an entire universe, when if you have the power to create simulated consciousness, surely you would have the power to time travel , determine the future , past present , future
if you can create a simualted consciousness , then surely you have the power to determine future events
therefore negating the requirement for a simulation for answers to a question!

Although you did cite entertainment , not sure how that is entertainment , suffering in general isnt entertaining , so if this is a simulation then someone or something has a really sick sense of entertainment

That may not be true in a real universe.

My thought is, just because a civilization has power to simulate a universe with sentient beings, DOES NOT MEAN that they have figured out where they themselves came from, or who or what made THEM.

They are simply simulating what they know to be true, they are simulating things that they see around them.

We here on Earth have something called the Large Hadron Collider that is able to simulate the big bang, black holes, etc.. yet we still have no idea about how humans came to be, and how this entire world came to be for that matter...we only have theories...which we test out by making....wait for it....Simulations!

Actually no. That is not what the LHC does. It does not simulate the big bang, black holes, etc. It crashes real particles into each other.

Actually Yes. They are replicating the conditions that are beleived to have existed immediatly after the big bang:


Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider have created a ‘mini Big Bang’ in an experiment that mimicked conditions a millionth of a second after the birth of the universe.

Link



Researchers used the world's largest particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to collide atoms with extremely high energy to reproduce this primordial soup, following their recent move to replicate the first moments of the universe with the upgraded LHC. CERN explained that powerful accelerators collided massive ions such as nuclei of gold and lead to recreate the conditions of the very early universe.

While they may not create actual black holes or big bangs, they sure are making progress in Simulating them by crashing "real" particles into eachother, which is what I am trying to convey.

They aren't simulating the big bang, black holes, or etc.

They are slamming particles together. Real particles which create real events and conditions.


Is your freezer a simulation of Antarctica?

Yes. Yes it is. and my oven simulates the Gobi desert.

interesting post. I think of the sim-people as shadowish. When a 'real person' decides to go to the beach, hundreds of others go to the same place. I've always thought that I'm just part of the background that makes the world as we know it keep working. I've never done anything heroic or noteworthy. I'm just useful to those around me. That makes me happy.

thats what I dont get, why create a simulation then provide those in the simulation with the tools to discover the simulation and then break the code , causing an infinite loop!

oh wait , thats because it is an infinite loop

Here is an idea. Make a simulated universe in order to study different laws of physics governing those universes, and how they affect life/civilization expansion. Maybe due to a long term science project to study the multiverse theory, without actually having a way (yet ?) to get to the other (confirmed ?) universes


Just food for thought.

I think it defeats the purpose of a simulation if the simulants inside being studied are aware they are simulated , then they wont carry on as normal , they will want to break the simulation . Apparently conscious beings dont like the idea of having pre determined fate
