I think what's implied is that if it's computable then it's finite. HOwever, you can't say for sure that because something is finite then it must be
existing on a computer.
Notice that the article said MAYBE.
If it turns that something is infinite and not computable then they'll argue our universe isn't a simulation. However, even this I find questionable.
HOw can we know it's infinite if we're finite? You may be able to imply infinity through math and theory, but it's still questionable to me.
Just seems like a question that's unanswerable to me.
If aliens visit us and tell us wer'e inside a simulation, maybe then. Or perhaps they won't call it a simulation. Maybe they'll call it a stuck world.
They'll unstick us and wish us luck.
I think ti's just as possible that the whole universe is a lifeform or part of a lifeform.
Simulation or not, I don't think it matters. When we die, we either find ourselves existing in an after-life or we don't. Existing in a similation
doesn't mean we will have an after-life. And existing in a real universe does not mean there's no after-life. It's all just a lot of horse play in my
