Theory? I am betting neither Clarke the writer, nor Shermer, the

aiming at human perspective. Shermer was trying to shoot down the
the religious, by re-phrasing Clarke's Law. Could God be Drelb, the
hyper-intelligence from the Sombrero Galaxy. If this is so, what can we
If Drelb is hyper-intelligent, it can simulate all of Earth and learn
about us and everything we do.
That seems inconsistent with the idea that "we" are infinitely many threads
computation in multiverses. FPI would make us random to Drelb too.
There are also infinite numbers of Drelb though too.
Drelb, by constructing a "physical replica" of Earth, is in a sense is running a quantum
emulation of all possibilities of Earth, and Drelb, by observing it, is split into as
many copies as there are possibilities for the simulation to diverge.
So he suffers FPI too.
