Question for the science minded - but about science fantasy

Anybody is welcome to chime in, however.

We have a situation in which a man has written a work of fiction. Being also a scientist, he creates the world, as described in the book, in a dimension of its own. The world has physical reality, but he can terminate the whole project if he so decides. He monitors the world through a computer screen, but there is also a chamber by which one can be transported into this world. I am looking for words that will describe such a setup, not advice on the feasibility, since I have already labeled it 'fantasy.'

@edgarblythe,
How about calling it a virtual entanglement generator.

Cool. Will I get royalties when you publish? Can I plan on retiring on my new found royalty wealth? Wink

@rosborne979,
If I sell one copy, I will be lucky. However, I don't mind giving you credit.

Thanks Edgar. I don't need any credit. I'll be satisfied if it helps you sell even one copy Smile Good luck.

Thanks. It was my NaNoWriMo project, but I like what I've got well enough to complete it.

Concerning this same world. It has taken on its own reality, in this dimension, and is following, a bit wobbly, in Earth's orbit. For plot concerns, it is necessary that it be hollow. Of course, such a planet could not survive indefinitely before it flies to pieces. The planet is just somewhat larger than Mars. Any ideas how thick the crust would need to be, just to hold it together, perhaps six months to a year? (There are psychological reasons how the planet ended up so screwed. Actually, the inner part mirrors on a giant scale the game he played so obsessively on a PC, some years in his past).

@edgarblythe,
Maybe it’s still partially connected to the virtual world through quantum filament decay and is somewhat stabilized by the filaments (which are slowly decaying). That will also give you a plot mechanism to provide urgency to the story.

@rosborne979,
It is my plan to wrap this world on Mars, like the candy coating on an M&M, because there is no room for the population to move to Earth.

Not that snug. I want the original surface of Mars to be available to these citizens and for any micro life below the surface to survive.
