There would be no notion of consumption or destruction as we use those terms
in the simulated reality.  You could push a button and have an apple pie
appear before you ready to eat, with no need to harvest the wheat, collect
the apples, etc.  Worlds can be created, suspended, duplicated, restored at
will, just as when you load a game on your computer it instantiates a
virtual environment, you can save it, pause it, resume it, copy it or delete
it as you wish.
