Wow, that's like saying building world trade center is simple because the parts that make it up are simple. Next you'll prove it by building it with just you and a friend then. Roll eyes | :rolleyes:
I'd use that as an argument to explain how building a simulated house is rather simple.

--edit
Also a long shot, going from "simulating a universe" to "creating a universe".

Yeah, you can simulate such a building "simply", but it'll look like a cartoon and won't look, feel or respond anything like reality.
The 6 rules to model a beehive do not predict exactly how a beeswarm will react, but it is perfectly valid to model a normal swarm and simulate it.

Sure you'll be able to tell some stuff and it may be good enough for some purposes, but it won't reflect reality.
It is not meant to be a perfect reflection, but a model to help understanding. The flapping of a butterfly may have effect on a beeswarm, but it is not a required part in the simulation. Been a screensaver since good ol' Win3.0.

Same with your idea of "simply" simulating the brain.
I didn't say that, but have fun Smile | :)
