Seems a bit esoteric, more along the lines of a grand conspiracy or grand operation that can't be logically concluded with objective analysis but can be concluded with subjective analysis. I do enjoy the pioneering into seeing the universe as a computer, but I don't truly see the aspect of the universe being a hyper-dimensional being's laptop or desktop. I've concluded that perhaps one day we will find that the universe is not a computer in the sense of a peripheral on another dimension plane but as an algorithm or equation desperately trying to solve itself by performing these calculations that happen to involve conscious beings (which ultimately are the universe). The universe would be a mathematical formula trying to reach equilibrium, which due to its expansion, the immense variables provided by various laws that we have discovered, would prove to be ultimately unsolvable. In fact, rather beautifully, God, the universe, existence, and an algorithm, has indeed made us (or him) from his own image, for we are merely biological computers and formulas constantly solving ourselves mentally and physically, and even more intriguingly we have created computers in our own image, as ways to understand ourselves if we were to strip away the emotions and unnecessary conscious thought. (Holy shit did I really just use 9 commas in a sentence)
How surprised, shocked, or even scared would you be if there was no controller? No master, no ulterior plot, no higher entity other than one's own self. An existence made not at the hands of some far-away manipulators but at the hands of the utter chaos, despair, and agony of an unified entity that has existed indefinitely one may infer. What if there is no purpose to existence, but to simply be, do, and fade back into the primordial abyss of nonexistence.
