But does it make any difference whether the observer is simulated or  
not? I've been assuming all along that my "reality" might be a  
"simulated" one from your POV. You could (without me knowing for sure  
but perhaps suspecting it) be projecting my entire reality for my (and  
almost certainly, your) benefit. Without you fiddling the knobs and  
faders behind the scenes I don't even exist.

Time exists where the conscious mind attributes or senses "meaning".  
Because everything can ultimately be derived from everything else, it  
makes sense that time is like a kind of "white noise of meaning" of  
all perceived OMs.
