yes, I said infinite with the implication that our nested simulated
researchers would possibly create nested simulated researchers of their own
ad infinitum. well actually ad until our nested researchers spread computing
resources so thinly that we run out of RAM or something. We still might not
get our FAI though. Its not clear to me actually how creating a series of
nested reality simulations actually "solves" anything other than having too
much computing resources...
