I wouldn't call it a simulation as much as a perspective-defined access. We
actually see things directly, but what we can see is defined by what we are
and in our case, what we are is very complex with many opportunities for
contention between levels and self-other symmetries.
I think it is relativity. Just as proximity of a black hole changes actual
temporal participation rather than simulates a change, our experience of
our life actually changes through direct participation with it. Instead of
simulation I would call it local identity or local realism, since there is
no non-local identity or global realism.
