in the conclusion of the article:

"The probability that you or your descendants will ever run an ancestor-simulation is negligible, unless you are now living in such a simulation"

which pretty much means that such a simulation is impossible. Because if we were living in a simulation, this study would have been done using imformation from a simulation. I don't believe that the mathematics and probabilities generated in a simulation can be a basis for testing the validity of that reality.

According to the article, the simulation would only be accurate enough to maintain the illusion of reality because it would be impossible to recreate every event in the entire universe. Would the simulation create a scenario where its inhabitants become aware of their true nature? What would be the purpose?

I don't think a simulation, which is trying to disguise itself as reality, will create characters who constantly question reality. Unless that is the very thing that it is trying to study.
