[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.)
