Its equivalent to solipsism. An interesting thought experiment, but nothing more than that.

"Simulation" is a concept we, humans, have crafted and conceived of. It seems very VERY unlikely that some higher beings have created this universe in such a way that it resembles exactly the concept we ourselves have created. I.e how likely is it that those beings "simulate" the universe, with ourselves inside of it, and we figure out how to "simulate" other things, in the exact way those higher beings simulated our universe in the first place?

Further explanation

the whole point, as far as I know, is probability. If a race could simulate different realities then eventually they could simulate any number of realities, where ours is simply one of those out of a large collection of other simulations. It's not that they chose one and simulated us. It's that if they continually simulated more realities then our could be one of those.

"Universe as a simulation" or "universe as a hologram" are the most boring pothead discussions of all time

It's the worst "science"

If the universe was a simulation why would we feel anything

We'd just be numbers

Not sentient beings
