Simulations should be identifiable as being described as software running on
hardware. I wonder what kind of hardware would it take to generate an Earth
simulation, with all its population, histories, biology and geology? What
kind of hardware are we looking at? Similarly, what kind of software is being
run, electrons, photons, photinos?

Can a simulation that is run within a simulation effectively, be more
complicated and capable, then the prior simulation?
