I am not particularly interested in the simulation theory, because it does not change what we should be doing. If the simulation is reality for us then we are still effected by its outcomes.

I do not see anything that we are doing effecting those outside the simulation.

If there are layers to reality then there needs to be some testable means to verify such a situation and some reason for us to alter our behavior, otherwise we should be continuing to go about our business of doing the best we can here.


Brian, what is your take on Nick Bostrom's theory about our universe as a simulation? I gave my reasons for why I don't think it is correct on the crnano blog.
