Relativity in a Virtual Universe, a Simulation Hypothesis

The Simulation Hypothesis proposes that all of reality is in fact an artificial simulation, analogous to a computer simulation, and as such our reality is an illusion. It is predicated upon the assumption that enormous amounts of computing power are available. In this paper I outline a geometrical approach to relativistic motion at the Planck level that maps virtual particles within a non-relativistic expanding 4-axis hyper-sphere (time and motion are constants) and then projects the particles onto the 3-axis hyper-sphere surface. As such it is not necessary to compute the relative position and motion of each particle with respect to each other. By using Lorentz formulas to translate between the hyper-sphere co-ordinates and the particle 3-axis surface, relativity resembles the mathematics of perspective.
