[extropy-chat] Is simulation recursion a problem?

Sorry if this is has been discussed in the past, but....
What is the latest thinking in regards to the problem of simulation
stacking (i.e. the prospect of endless simulations emerging within
simulations). Is there merit to the suggestion that this is a problem
and that historical simulations are thus set to be terminated at the
time that advanced simulation technologies emerge?
Or, are there computational options that could conceivably result in a
virtually endless array of simulations (e.g. agonizingly slow
clockspeeds, quantum computation, etc.)
