No need at all. No need to simulate a quark in your brain until you stick your
head inside a particle accelerator. For that matter, no need to simulate a neuron
until somebody cuts your scull open and looks at the tissue inside with a microscope.
On the other hand, if infinite (not just very large) computation is possible in some
other universe then there is no reason to economize and you might as well
simulate everything just for the hell of it. After all, 10^27 is no closer to being
infinite than the number 1 is.
