Excised from Real Life:
  • It should be noted that, returning to a Quantum Mechanical train of thought, the universe being finite may not make it able to be perfectly simulated. In fact, even if we had knowledge as perfect as QM allows, it would be a mere fraction of a second before the universe would become unable to be predicted again.
...because I'm pretty sure this is wrong. The information available to us within the universe doesn't give any particular indication of how much information about our universe is available to the simulators. All of quantum mechanics could be a quirk of our reality designed into the system and powered by their computers, for all we can tell from this perspective.
