Time (and space) are quantized. The unit is the so called Planck's time, it 
is the time taken by light to travel one unit of Planck's length, that is 
something as: 1.6 x 10^-33 cm (near 10^-33 inch). This unit is defined as the 
square root of hG/c^3
Where: h is the reduced Planck's constant, G the Newton's constant of 
gravitation and c the velocity of ligth in space. The planck's time is near 
10^-43 second, so you can think of the world as a motion picture with 10^43 
pictures per second.

To simulate the Universe (ten billion light years in radius for ten billion 
years) you need 10^244 Planck's cubes ( One Planck's unit for each dimension 
in space and time). This could be run by a quantum computer with a 813 bits 
word in a single computation cycle, something as a billionth of a second. 
This illustrates the potential power of quantum computers and the effect of 
state superposition in quantum mechanics.

Well, a classical question at that level is: How a computer in our universe 
can simulate that universe? The answer is that our universe (and the 
simulated one) are Four dimensional *and* monolinear. The computing space 
inside the computer is two dimensional *and* 813 times multilinear.

If there was some quantum computers in the simulated universe, each would add 
813 multi-linearities to the computational space, not a problem as the 
multi-linearity may expands up to the infinite.
