Simulation models provide virtually unlimited power; or rather, they provide unlimited virtual power. If you can think of something, you can simulate it. Experimenting in a simulated world, you can change anything, in any way, at any time - even change time itself. Simulators are gods, ruling in time and space over parallel universes of their own creation. Purdue is at the center of these simulated universes, the Big Bang(s) happened here. The first steps to using the powers of simulation is to be aware of them and their origins.
