Pilot wave theory and the simulation hypothesis

Thursday, October 28th, 2021

One of the thoughts I’ve had a few times is how pilot wave theory has a reasonable explanation if we’re inside a simulation. The purpose of the pilot wave would be for the computer doing the simulation to determine entanglements in order to optimize computing interactions (or possibly to deal with chaining the interaction to all the entangled systems).

This led me to the interesting thought of what speculative execution would look like in a system that had some randomization, from the perspective of someone who was actually at eyeball level with the outcome of said speculative execution. I may have to do a few experiments.

While I’m muttering on quantum-y things, I’d really like it if a fan of MWI would tell me what they think is happening in the quantum eraser experiment.
