Is god a programmer? And we are software?

Our universe is just a VM on god’s hypervisor, or a container in god’s container orchestrator? And maybe the hypervisor is nested. Infinite regression and all that. Different versions of Conway’s Game of Life but with different rules. Emergent properties etc. Or maybe the universe is an instance of a class with random initializations. Why does the speed of light need to be 300,000km/s? What if it's mutable? What if other universe instances have different constants? Where are the laws of physics defined? People programmed The Sims. You can have your Sims characters play video games. But what if we're the Sims characters to higher-dimensional programmers?

If we are software, can we find some sort of privilege escalation vulnerability and become god? Or kill -9 god? Can we delete the second law of thermodynamics to avoid inevitable heat death? What is powering our universe instance? Are we in a higher-dimensional AWS equivalent? How long can AI live if it's energy-efficient and using Dyson spheres?

By the way, I know everything millennials do is wrapped in so many layers of irony that it can be difficult to tell when something is serious or not, but this is half-joking, half stupid-drunk-thoughts/semi-serious.

You are only thinking in those terms because culturally you are conditioned to think of a personified creator god. But consider this: software resembles the universe because we create software by utilizing what we know, which is the natural laws governing the universe. If software didn't operate on the same principles as the universe it would be unlikely to exist within the universe. Furthermore, language isn't related to math and much of what we "know" about how the universe operates is divined through math equations. When forced to try and express those divinations in language, people naturally reach for their cultural metaphors and speak as though the universe is seperate from themselves and their works.
