Who says simulated universes aren't "real"? Of course they are. Which begins the question, if there is an "original" universe or if it's even
possible. Perhaps simulations are an infinite cycle of sorts.
When we begin creating simulations, an endless number of them can be treated as a ladder/hierarchy for drawing out information on anything that can
possibly be created, invented, or essentially exist.
For an example; by 2050 we're running quantum computers that can simulate a universe, & the progression of natural events (evolution) over the course
of X amount of years. Let's just say 14 billion years for this example. So inside the simulation the time is relative to itself, i.e 'true', but to
the simulators posting by their quantum machine, the simulation passes by in a matter of seconds, minutes, etc. By the end of the simulation, the data
is collected; let's assume there were trillions of sentient beings that lived on different worlds (planets). From there we can take & use ALL that
information on their thoughts, experiences, & creations for our own purpose. For whatever possible purpose it is, even if just for the sake of
knowledge. Multiply that times millions of machines running simulations all day every day.
So basically, if simulations become a real possibility to us -- at whatever point that is -- it will literally create a singularity of
information/data, where we're collecting the experiences/progression of COUNTLESS universes. At which point, there will be no limits to our knowledge,
no bounds to what we can do or know.
The first, and pretty much only step towards this singularity, is the ability to create simulations. That may require an insane amount of computing
power, but with the evolution of our processing technology I think it's closer than we think. I just posted a thread recently on the new Princeton
discovery for manufacturing quantum processors with millions of qbits. That may be the key to a reality we can't even begin to comprehend.
