Show me this computer. Or it's all 'heaven' and 'god' as the programmer and as such, utter bollocks.

30 years if nobody nuke each other.
The way it is now. I'm not sure if it will happen.

We're programs. Right. The matrx is real, there is a Wizard of Oz. Right.
That is exactly what the scientists at the University of Bonn are proposing. They have found limits (they think) on which a simulation could not be extended further into deeper complexity. So by creating this simulated universe and testing those limits, they hope to discover if said limits also exist in our universe. They don't know if they are correct. That is why they will run the experiment.
i am having a difficult time discerning your tone….and not sure it's on topic.
nevertheless, it should be noted that there is not only physical/external in and out, but also conceptual/internal in and out. and that those directions are different from up/down, left/right, and front/back.
perhaps THIS is what you refer to as 'dimension'?
The depth dimension is physically real and extends from the bottom micro-level to the ultimate macro-level of the Universe. The depth dimension, or the scales axis, complements the standard three spatial dimensions.
....if anyone knows where some might be found, I'd be quite interested!
Since the physical processes we witness, as well as those by which we’re governed, seemingly take place within the region, it’s natural to expect that the information those processes carry is also found within the region. But for black holes, we’ve found that the link between information and surface area goes beyond mere numerical accounting; there’s a concrete sense in which information is stored on their surfaces.
Physicists Leonard Susskind and Gerard ’t Hooft stressed that the lesson should be general: Since the information required to describe physical phenomena within any given region of space can be fully encoded by data on a surface that surrounds the region, then there’s reason to think that the surface is where the fundamental physical processes actually happen. Our familiar three-dimensional reality, these bold thinkers suggest, would then be likened to a holographic projection of those distant two-dimensional physical processes.
