What would be the purpose for a simulation without suffering?

Not only would it serve no use to anyone, it'd (at risk of sounding borderline sadist) be boring.

I don't mean zero suffering, I mean zero excessive suffering such as a child born with a disease that causes extreme pain all its life and dies by age 3 after a torturous existence.

Ah, that kind of suffering.

Well, perhaps the way the superiors see it is, what happens to humans, is less likely to happen to them.

Perhaps they could have coded out pain and anguish, but that drives us on to find solutions that the superiors have failed to do so themselves.

It explains why, for example, an athlete could suddenly die of cancer while someone who smokes, drinks and does drugs can live on.

Sick, but if we are just programmes then it is, I suppose, justified in the minds of the superiors.

See what you've dun did Fred? Now I'm thinking deeply about this crap xD

The ability to run a simulation as detailed as this world would require a bare minimum of exquisite knowledge of incredibly advanced nanotech. Technology likely to render alterations of a human body at a sub cellular level in real time possible. The only way I could see such a civilisation learning from us is culturally or sociologically and that kind of suffering is limited in affect to either as the majority of people can't conceive of such an existence.

You do indeed have a point there. Problem is, it does exist and sadly it's going to take a while to eradicate. And that's even when areshole governments stop wallowing in pride and prioritise.

What if the advanced civilization closely mirrors ours? Then we're trying to replicate history rather than just make up worlds because we can. If it's our history, humanity's pain is an integral part of; I don't think that it could be excluded.

You don't have any contriving ideas about the Holy FSM's relationship with its followers?
