Yeah, I have read about the ... http://www.simulation-argument.com/ before.

Guess where I have a problem with that is the amount of data that is needed to simulate a whole universe and how much data the simulation would have to store somehow. Will it actually ever be possible to simulate several universes like the one we can observe (and, more importantly, interact with)?

Might be interesting to approach that as a Fermi Estimation problem and guesstimate how many planets we need to turn into computers and storage in order to simulate what we see.

 

Stainless, that link is seriously cool. Guess I need to start creating some gameplans with sketches now.

 

Nice one samoth, yes that is ... unintuitive huh.png.

 

Guess I am not pragmatical enough, emotionally speaking, to give up on raising my level of understanding to a point where I feel a little more comfortable (in an unexplainable way, I guess).

Found new input ... guess I'm still in the processing the new information stage, though.

I also have not read and thought through all posts, yet.
