This strikes me as a ludicrous assertion - am I missing the point completely?

Imagine I could simulate, in real time, a system of 100 atoms using 50
atoms. I can then have two groups of 50 running in real time with perfect
fidelity. Why can't I then harness each of these groups and construct
2 simulated 50 atom computers? There's an infinite regress here.
