I'm looking for a sci-fi story I read about 20 years ago. It includes the following elements:

  • A lab, and a computer simulation of the universe or earth. Evolution (possibly).
  • A simulation created with the first simulation by scientists within the first simulation.
  • A real world lab technician/scientist entering the simulation(s).

I would appreciate some help finding this story, thanks.

    For example, this novel fits your description almost perfectly; en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simulacron-3 – Valorum Jan 30 '15 at 15:32

    Can you remember anything about the events of the story, the hero, any villains, the names of the simulation, anything remarkable that happened inside the sim? – Valorum Jan 30 '15 at 15:34

    Was there some sort of deus ex machina plot twist? What does the title of this question have anything to do with the story/question? – phantom42 Jan 30 '15 at 15:34

    There is a movie en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Thirteenth_Floor with this story from 1999. It is base on the book en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simulacron-3 – Hothie Jan 30 '15 at 15:37

    If it wasn't published, where did you read it? – phantom42 Jan 30 '15 at 17:15
