The issue of whether we are in fact simply entries in a computer simulation may be becoming moot:
"The goal of the DEUS project (Dark Energy Universe Simulation) is to investigate the imprints of dark energy
on cosmic structure formation through high-performance numerical
simulations. In order to do so, the project has conducted a simulation
of the structuring of the entire observable universe, from the Big Bang
to the present day. Thanks to the Curie super-computer,
the simulation has made it possible to follow the evolution of 550
billion particles. Two other complementary runs are scheduled by the end
of May. More details in the press release."
