    It's easy to get so 'into' computers one loses touch and thinks they're real.

    My opinion - Computers make nothing but chaos and frustration .

    "Watson" however was entertaining.

    I might be completely off base here, but I'm wondering... is this essentially saying that if our universe is a computer simulation, the reason we experience reality in four dimensions and only to the resolution of the quantum scale is limited "simulation" technology in some other universe?

    that's not what the researchers were looking for but I guess you could interpret it in that manner

    Sorry, but this is too overly speculative.
