Quoting Giulio Prisco:

I just left the following comment on Ben's blog and I am reposting
here for discussion:
Ok then, Ben. What do think of the "it from bit" notion that our
reality is fundamentally information theoretic? Do we live in a
universe that is "virtualized" by quantum violations of Bell's
Inequality? Might we not live in a virtual reality that is not a
simulation of something else? Might not different divergent Everett
branches be "simulations" of one another?
I do agree with your sentiment that the universe is likely far
stranger than we imagine it to be.
