If quantum computer r treqired to create a simulated universe or a limited simulation made to look like a universe but QM is the result of a simulation, doesn't this produce infinite regress?

If you accept that view, then yes, it would lead to infinite regression.

I am soon to present my ideas and thoughts. Stay tuned.

Does this not nix the simulation hypothesis?

I was just listening to jim on the 2010 C2C interview n it occcured to me that what simulationists seem to be saying is that the real universe is mental, which doesn't work out because a simulation is supposed to be a copy of the real world so it would be physical, n maybe that's why they don't want to touch the topic of what the real universe would be like.

Also, it could be that in developing computers we are really imitating nature without knowing it, in contrast to inventing things, like airplanes, that imitate birds, with nature in mind.
