What's your interpretation?

That argument is predicated on the assumption that the entity running the simulation utilises the same technology as we do in this world is it not?

Because he is not the architect of the simulation?

This abstract is probably the most succinct summary I have seen of the world as a potential simulation based around the double-slit experiment:

I was discussing objects out of view but you could apply the same logic to occluded objects. Does your blanket statement apply to all video game engines? In wave-particle duality the electrons do still exist (just change properties) in any event so could be analogous?

Phlogiston theory was widely accepted in the 18th century by scientists until more advanced quant. methods disproved it. New developments might arise in regard to quantum effects. Can't the observer effect still be a platform for philosophical discourse without pedantry?

Yes I think science and philosophy in modern times are complementary, however, science relies on empirical data. The philosophy of antiquity did provide the foundation for modern science, however. Is that your position?

Can you outline what specifically is stupid and wrong with this line of reasoning? Do you think existential debate is stupid and wrong? Would you not agree that the philosophers of antiquity built the foundations of modern science?

Does the observer effect then not state that we can't know a particles state without observing it, because it exists in a probabilistic superposition of states? Why is this then not analogous to a video game in your view?

Is it pseudoscience or is it philosophy which is predicated upon questions arising from quantum mechanics? What specific elements within quantum mechanics did you feel were interpreted incorrectly?

Would it not be more accurate to say quantum mechanics is the specific library of compression algorithms within physics. With physics being the overall framework dealing with matter and energy?

If you've ever run an N64 game emulated across three monitors you will note many polygons disappear when not in view of the main camera boundary. You can also view videos from boundary break on YouTube to observe this.

Do you think simply being cynical and ridiculing ideas is a demonstration of intellect? Did Socrates not say something regarding this, and Descartes?

Philosophy for the masses perhaps?

The double split experiment could be more in line with what you're saying and still support Musk's argument could it not? I.e. wave-particle duality.

Yes, that would seem reasonable wouldn't it? Does the resolution or fidelity of our world then increase as their technology improves? Assuming their technology does improve incrementally in the same way as ours.

Can you outline what you perceive the flaws in what he is saying to be and why you believe them to be flaws?

Is your statement not predicated on the assumption that the world or entity running the simulation is using technology which is the same as ours?
