Simulated world is quite another matter, it may be possible or not with 

quantum computers. A brain simulation on "ordinary" elctronics devices will not

"live" in a simulated world, its input and output will be in the real world. It
will act with a robot body, even if the "brain" is not in the robot. To be 

sure, there will be some copies on different system in different places. if the
running computer is destroyed, another will take the work.
