That's another reasonable hypothesis. I think that, if that were
true, and we assume the simulation focuses on Earth (hence no ET), we
would expect that the universal simulation is being computed at a
lower resolution everywhere other than earth, which would lead to
Planck's constant increasing the further you go from Earth. Could
that be detected?
