Infinite Computing Story? FOUND

3 years, 9 months ago

Hey everyone, I need your help here. I’m making a list of cool short stories for my friend to read, all about philosophy and the creation of the universe and such (like Asimov’s "Last Question"). Don’t worry, I’ll post it here when it’s finished.

The problem is, I’m stuck on one. I have no idea what the title is, I’m hoping you guys can help me out.

So basically the story is about:

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

There are these computer scientists who finally discover infinite computing. One scientist has a program to simulate the universe, perfectly following the same laws of our universe. She starts the simulation, and starts fast forewarding through time. She passes the birth of our sun, the formation of our solar system, everything, until she arrives at Earth. She notices how everything is exactly the same as how it was in "real life". She slows down, and finds her house on earth. She goes to that morning, and sees herself leave the house in the exact same way she did. She follows herself through the day, until she reaches the point where she is looking at herself, staring into the computer. She calls over her partner to look at this, and then on the computer her partner comes over as well. She waves, the computer waves. Everything is identical.

!!SPOILER END!!

I think thats enough information for someone who knows what it is to recognize it. I may be off on some bits, I haven’t read it in awhile, but that’s the main gist of it. I tried to leave out the ending, and not to spoil too much.

Anyone?
