Said that, I still see a computer in front of me (or a

Yes so what ? you're not at the same level so you can't
expect

?? No it will make your simulated self in the simulated computer
wet... but your simulated self in front of a simulated computer
simulating you in front of a typhoon will not... same thing you
(the 1st level simulated you) are *not* at the same level (as
the simulated simulated you).

```This I do not quite understand. What does it mean simulated levels
in simulation? After all my computer is simulated and I is
simulated. Then what is difference between my computer that is
simulated and myself that is simulated? Where the difference comes
from?
```

You were talking about a 'you' being simulated inside a simulated
computer (so that you is one level down from a simulated you in front
of that simulated computer).

So you have:

"real" computer running a simulation.

In that simulation a universal computer is "built" and on it (the
simulated computer) a simulated being (part of the simulation at the
level where the computer has been built) run another simulation, what
is running on the simulated computer cannot affect the simulated
being (which is in front of it, if the computer is a real simulation
of a computer) but can affect simulated being running on the
simulated world of that simulated computer.
```
```
No, I have meant

a) simulated computer

b) simulated myself (but not in a)

```
Now I consider a) and b). This is after all some instructions executed by some Turing machine. It seems that there is no difference. How would you define the difference then in this case?
