no, not only a simulation as the ones that exists actually, but a simulation that would allow the virtual ppl to live, create things, use these things and all.
exactly like if us on Earth, we would be that ppl in the computer. and the ones that created us would have do so to see how we would evolve. but this time, WE would create a simulation to see how THEY evolve. to learn from their errors or successes. with it said, does this still seem +/- useless?
