As a Simulation Designer what DATA would you need to Accurately Simulate COPIES of your own Population?

"Earth as a Simulation Series 2: Are we simulated copies of people? How, slowing down technological development in your simulation will get around the potential recursive building sims in a sim glitch problems. However, an accurately simulated population will STILL present specific experiences, despite that the technologies these experiences depend on DON'T YET exist (immersive VR experiences for example). This series presents evidence of anomalous 'missing technology' experiences & evidence of obscuration of these & evidence that the simulation we are in was built in the last few decades."

On previous pages I described how academics have outright dismissed the possibility that ‘IF’ we are in a simulation we’d be simulating the original population through the phase when the original population BUILT THE SIMULATION WE ARE IN . . .

In dismissing this possibility as being IMPOSSIBLE then it is also very obvious that they haven’t even thought about the possibility of there being ‘obvious’ visible evidence ‘IF’ a population was being TAKEN THROUGH THE PHASE WHEN THE SIMULATION WAS BUILT. ‘IF’ they had considered this possibility then they would have eventually realized that there WILL be visible evidence AND being visible then it’s likely that you can physically OBSERVE this potential evidence to see if it’s visibly present . . .

As a Simulation Designer what would you desperately need to very Accurately Simulate your own Population?

However, they have obviously NOT even thought about this possibility AT ALL because ‘IF’ then they had they would have figured out they’d be OBVIOUS visible clues AND then they’d have used their advanced observational abilities to actually OBSERVE if any of these clues are actually VISIBLY present here.

This is not only inexcusably, incompetent it’s also going to be highly embarrassing.

A very good and rational question to consider ‘IF’ there is a possibility that we might be in a simulation would be this one . . .

“‘IF’ simulated people were being simulated through the ‘building the simulation we are in phase’ then would there be any observable visible evidence to the simulated population that they were living through this phase?”

What evidence would there be ‘IF’ we are in a simulation AND we where also ‘unbelievably’ being simulated through the phase were the population we are simulating designed and built the very simulation we are in?

Obviously this requires one to exercise something that seems impossible here . . . which is the ability to THINK and ponder about earth as a simulation possibilities.

Now if you consistently attempt to do this then after about a year of effort your feeble minded head might just manage to figure out that for a simulation to be useful it has to be accurate AND that this accuracy ‘unbelievably’ doesn’t just happen magically.

For our meteorological weather simulations here we have sensors all feeding in data from all round the world as well as data from satellites. Without accurate data your simulation simply won’t return accurate results.

So, what accurate data would be required to simulate an entire world of purported to be conscious and aware people seriously accurately?

Well, ‘IF’ we are in a simulation then we are each accurately simulating someone else AND we are living every detail of that persons life, we are doing their job, we are married to the same person they are, we will have the same shopping habits, we will have learnt to speak the same language, we will have studied the same things, we will go to the same tennis club, we will even have the same likes and preferences, the same thinking capacities . . . and so on and so on . . .

So, are we supposed to believe that the simulation managers employed a magician to magically manifest this data out of a magicians hat? I say this because this is obviously what academics here must think OR perhaps they just haven’t been allowed to THINK about this PERIOD?

How would you Disguise the Global Collection of Personal Data from your Simulated Population?

‘IF’ we are simulating people though the phase they designed and built the simulation then for the earth simulation to be useful then they’d have to collect unbelievably minute personal details about each and every person and their life.

Seriously, is this too complicated to figure out?

‘IF’ we are in a simulation project accurately emulating all the people from somewhere else then just were did they get the personal data from to generate each person here?

For ANYONE that has spent time seriously THINKING about ‘earth as a simulation’ possibilities then it eventually becomes stupidly obvious that an impossible to hide, very invasive PEOPLE data collection would be one of the ABSOLUTE things that would be VISIBLE ‘IF’ we are in a simulation AND that this data collection would ONLY be visible when we are being simulated through the phase the simulation we are in was being built and TESTED.

The simulation designers couldn’t even start to test basic and realistic ‘people interaction rendering’ software components without this data.

To collect this detail of personal information on a global scale then they would have had to invade EVERYONE’S PRIVACY to an unbelievable degree. In other words, this invasion of privacy would have happened on an astonishing scale within the population that built a simulation of this detail.

To put this VERY simply . . .

‘IF’ this data collection took place in the original population then in an accurate simulation of that population pretty much the same personal data collection effort would ALSO happen in the simulated copied population too . . . in other words ‘IF’ we are in a simulation then a personal data collection effort WILL ALSO BE VISIBLE HERE . . .

So, ‘IF’ you are one of those here that have spent time THINKING about ‘earth as a simulation’ possibilities then why have you OBVIOUSLY NOT THOUGHT about this very obvious possibility?

Isn’t this one of the very obvious clues that will be highly, HIGHLY visible to your simulated population ‘IF’ you are in a simulation AND that you are also being simulated through the simulation project’s data collection and TESTING phase?

The next question for you to THINK about before reading the next page is quite obvious . . .

“If you were a simulation designer than how would you prevent your simulated population from becoming suspicious about any massive, global, very personal data collection particularly as the designer of our simulation would be aware that just a few years before this started to happen there’d be an official academic ‘simulation argument’ published which worryingly might encourage someone (ANYONE) to START THINKING about what a MASSIVE, global, personal data collection might ‘REALLY’ signify . . . “
