So that means that most of the consciousnesses that will ever exist, will exist inside of those simulations. Right off the bat, you can’t do a full-resolution, real-time simulation of an entire universe inside of a similar universe. As far as anyone will ever be able to tell, there’s no difference between a “universe simulation” and a “perception of the universe simulation”. And as long as RAM is a problem, there’s no point fulling rendering everyone else’s mind, so maybe you don’t live in a huge universe simulation, you live in a tiny “you simulation”. This does not mean that populations are related to circles.”“Do we live in a computer simulation?” is a great question to ask and a terrible question to answer.
