This question assumes the following is true:
- Our universe is simulated
- We will eventually have the capacity and ability to easily simulate our own universe
- Every point in time at every place will be generated and observable from outside the simulation
Question It has always been a great source of existential dread to think about the very real possibility of our universe being a simulation, but it also got me thinking that perhaps eventually we will be able to simulate a universe ourselves. Essentially a simulation within a simulation, so feasibly if we are discussing in terms of data and physical size, when (if at all) would there be an end to the simulations? A simulation rock-bottom, if you will.
