Does this argument hold up? If not, why?
Assuming we’re the first and real universe..
If [we] created a simulation of the universe and someone on earth and someone on the moon observed it, they wouldn’t experience the same “reality” due to the speed of light causing latency between their experiences. Therefore, a simulated universe is a localized experience for the parent universe.
Therefore, the simulated universe must contain less information than the parent universe.
Therefore, there is a limit to the number of simulated universes that can exist because each must contain less information than its parent.
Therefore, the odds of our universe being a simulation are much lower than proposed by the simulation hypothesis, which implies each simulation is capable of creating an informationally equivalent simulation in a recursive fashion, ad infinitum.
