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.
