Yes it matters if we know.
The Bannister Effect. Once the 4 minute mile was achieved, breaking a belief that it could not be, MANY people did it.

So, we have people leading people for years (Carnegie, etc). Tony Robbins. Teaching you to walk on hot coals without getting burned.

It would have a transformative power on those that master it. Ala the Matrix.
Now here is the sick part...

What happens if our simulation is controlled from a simulation, and we discover the technique that those who wrote us use to detect their simulation? (ie, can the machine out think their Gods?)...

And what happens if that cascades to destroy the whole thing to start again? BOOM!
