If X simulates Y, then X must know Y's state. That knowledge is part of X's state. Likewise, if Y simulates X, then knowledge of X's state must be part of Y's state. The only way this can happen is if X = Y.
Perhaps you could write a simple program of two agents simulating each other and prove me wrong.
