I thought the same thing at first. However, assuming that the simulation implements only the very fundamental building blocks of physics at it's core, it is interesting to see that they translate to match our observations on a macro scale. Given that, it's just a matter of what else we can glean from the simulation runs that we have yet to observe IRL. These new insights don't have to be taken as truth, but rather lead us to new observations.

No problem is insoluble in all conceivable circumstances.

Working...
