There are several theories and hypotheses that state that our universe may be simulated on some alien computers. It would be a Virtual Universe without physical existence. It is also discussed whether Robots (or Computers) might ever have a conscience. In both cases, there would be feelings and emotions being produced on these machines, as the feelings of beings in a virtual universe would be produced on these computers. The paradox comes when we know that every computer can be replaced by a Universal Turing Machine. Since this machine essentially writes and reads symbols on a tape, so the simple “back and forth” of the tape being read and written by Turing’s machine should produce the same feelings as the electronic computer produce in its simulation! Or does it just prove that these feelings could not be generated on a computer?
