I am making a big assumption but if we live in a simulation

    I am making a big assumption but if we live in a simulation....

    .......Would the real world affect are world the virtual world because of the double slit experiment? Would an outside observer of the simulation or a object outside the simulation or even the computer that the simulation built on have an affect on the double slit experiment? Or is this like that like saying the heat in the machine affect the simulated fire?

    If you propose something magical, you can't ask for physical results or answers.

    Does the temperature of my PC affect the way it computes? I don't believe so. (Until it gets so hot it fries or so cold the semiconductors don't work)
