Time and space probably donít have real valued states, but until we have
a quantum theory of gravity we canít be certain of that.

It would seem to me that is evidence (but not proof) that we do not live
in a simulation because if we did the simulators could make c, G, and h
have any value they wanted them to have. Physics is what the simulators
say it is.
