Maybe try to make it as close to reality as possible so the sims correspond to known people and are constantly updated. Or would that not be a game?

       You are already in that particular sims game, as are we all....

       Well, in all fairness then, the sims game was made in a sims game.   

       ....[[[[I]]]]....

       I am now looking up at the sky, fearful of seeing a giant cursor, and hearing a loud clicking sound.

       Funny idea and i agree with ling. The only thing is that google earth doesn't represent homes in 3D so there would be no way to know what they looked like.

       Well, [Ian], I'm glad you asked.   

       In a book I read a long time ago, the author used set theory to describe consciousness...   

       If I think about something, I put it in brackets. For a conscious bieng, they must have the capacity to reflect upon themselves, thusly represented by [I]. But, sense the 'I' I am thinking about is capable of reflection, a more accurate representation would be [[I]]. The author representes the infinitly nested idea as what I wrote.   

       I was reminded of this when pondering sims games within sims games.
