Ja, Samantha after reading your post I realized I didn't make it clear enough what I was envisioning would be going on in that M-Brain.  Feeling is thinking.  The simulated existence would be a superset of everything we experience here and now, more and better, in every way.  We could simulate all the joys of playing with a child for instance, and I for one would spend plenty of my existence doing exactly that (if the term "I" has any meaning in this context.)  Nearby orbiting nodes could simulate the child, the flower, the unexpected bug, the gentle breeze, the sunshine.  The simulated joy would be as real as that which we now feel, if not moreso.  
If we do it right, plenty of the simulated beings would seldom (if ever) need to trouble themselves, or even be aware that they are sims, and not flesh and blood carbon beings (if the term "themselves" has any meaning in this context.)
