Worst Simulation World Hypothesis

Sunday, June 5th, 2016

There is a lot of talks nowadays about our world as a computational simulation based on hints from recent advances in computation and virtualization. However, we know that computations are involved in all sorts of abnormal computational behaviour including such as crashes, hangs, resource leaks and spikes. So our experience should suggest that the simulated world is probably not the best and most likely one of the worst of all possible worlds. For example, we may live in a universe undergoing memory dump formation after a runaway computation (from Memory Dump Analysis Anthology, Volume 4, page 271).
