Sort of Library of Babel(https://libraryofbabel.info/About.html) comes in mind when debates about simulations arise. But instead of 3200 characters limit, there is no limit. What You(We, I , every "sentient" being) search(see,hear.....add senses by will and capability) is already there and it's just presented (calculated) in an instant. The Great Imaginarium if You will.....

Wolphram Alpha (http://www.wolframalpha.com/) does more or less what You have described, so I suppose that Stephen has devised/engineered some kind of "table". But still, can You give some more technical insights in Your idea, since sounds interesting (for me at least).

I have found this reddit discussion:

https://www.reddit.com/r/askscience/comments/1q16hw/im_32_is_there_a_single_cell_or_even_molecule/

and there are some pro and contra comments in there about atoms and molecules of the nerve cells. Probably I need a lot more reading on this subject , txs for the guidance.

Everybody knows that atoms in the brain are constantly replaced.

I don't know if this is true.

http://askanaturalist.com/do-we-replace-our-cells-every-7-or-10-years/ http://rebrn.com/re/theseus-body-is-there-any-part-of-a-human-that-is-cellularly-or-873979/ http://www.theguardian.com/science/neurophilosophy/2012/feb/23/brain-new-cells-adult-neurogenesis All 3 links suggest the opposite.

Can You provide a source for this claim?

Since I don't have much academic knowledge on this subject, I appreciate Your feedback a lot. Can I just ask what is Your level of competence in this field?

As I am interpreting this, the whole idea about the rewarding system(s) goes down the drain. The agent ,as humans always do, will find a way to cheat, because in (almost) every problem there is/are a loophole(s), which for sure can't be detected 100% upfront. As i see We can't use the same tools as evolution (the carrot and the stick) and expect to get something different then a creature as Us, with capacity In order of magnitudes bigger, of course.
