The full Simulation Hypothesis is the premise that the entire universe, inclusive of all life-forms, is an artificial reality that resembles a computer simulation and that ours would therefore be a perceived reality. The concept was popularized in the 1999 sci-fi film ‘The Matrix’. In this commentary we look at techniques for programming a Planck unit Matrix style simulation that operates at the Planck level, based on a mathematical electron model in which mass, length, time and charge are dimensionless geometrical objects. The objective of a realistic simulation is to design mathematical objects that would be indistinguishable from their respective physical structures, the mathematical universe hypothesis approach. Also massive computational resources will be required and this must be taken into consideration, especially when operating at the Planck level.
