the thing that fundamentally feels absent to me in simulationist worldviews is that putting your box in a box does not answer the question "what are boxes in" without infinite recursion.
in the case of nondigital substrates, it may be possible for substrates to contain one another nonhierarchically, or hierarchically but in loops.

but with digital substrates there is inherently a loss of fidelity with each nested container.
