If a simulated universe works on einstein relativity would the real world have

    If a simulated universe works on einstein relativity would the real world have ....

    ...To work on relativity?

    I think the maximum speed of the universe between real and simulated universe could vary but would time dialation still exist in both?

    And just for myself time dialation is when objects age faster and slower because gravity affect on spacetime. Correct?

    I don't get the question. What is the supposed connection between a simulated world and the real world?

    The connection is that the real world creates the simulation.

    How could you create a simulated universe that runs on time dialation if the real world doesn't run on time dialation?

    This is assuming that it is possible the real world would not contain time dialation.

    Simply program it into the computer?

    So: what would a computer program be like if it were programmed in a different universe than the one we exist in?

    For example the matrix. We are the programed universe created by the real world.
