(rolf's gambit is a method for cooperation between powers in different
worldlines via mutual simulation, gone over in detail in this earlier sl4
(if you haven't read that thread, you really should, it's probably the most
interesting thing to ever come out of this list)
I was thinking today about a puzzle. Let's say you're a friendly AI, and
you're going to enact rolf's gambit. But before you do that, you take over a
few solar systems, and you discover obvious proof that your world is a
simulation. For the sake of argument, let's say it's an indestructible tuba
on the third moon of saturn.
The question is this: assuming you continue with rolf's gambit, do you
include the tuba in your subsimulations? Why or why not?
