Nick (and List):
just a short remark to the very first words of your post below (mostly
> If we are living in a simulation .....<
I think this is the usual pretension (not only on this list).
I think "we simulate what we are living in" according to the little we know.
Such 'simulation' - 'simplification' - 'modeling' - 'metaphorizing' - or
'harrypotterizing' things we think does not change the "unknown/unknowable"
we live in. We just think "and therefore we think we are.

Most ignorantly and commonsensically yours
