I would be interested for the team to expound how "limitation in the energy of cosmic rays" correlates to a simulated environment and why they would
expect to find such limitations in this distinctive phenomena.
Perhaps this would explain that constant itching feeling that many people have in the back of their consciousness that gives rise to such questions of
life, consciousness, and the origins of the universe.
I think perhaps, much like a multidimensional hypercube (as portrayed in this youtube link- www.youtube.com...
), we are
forever constrained within the limitations of the cube that represents our consciousness (no matter how many cubes can be constructed within the cube
the end result will always be the exact replica of a cube).
For example; If we were able to document every bit of information that would allow us to simulate our universe in a computer, and then actually
conduct the simulation, we would never be able to gain any more information than what is capable of occurring in our natural universe- in other words
we can be so smart as to know everything in the universe but we would never know anything outside of it.
And if that is the case then what is intelligence really? Because at this moment all we can say is that we lack it. And then if we know everything in
the universe then we would have gained nothing because we only know what already is.
It seems as if it would be an endless cycle, much like the possibility that is proposed by Bostrom in the article. And what is an endless cycle? It
is the equivalent of zero. This is the exact equivalence that Hawking concluded for the universe. The evidence it seems, is that something (the
universe) is nothing unless that something can be more than the sum what it already is.
Confused yet? I know I am. Well I am off to slip away into nothingness as I sleep and dream about something...
