Simulation can be thought of as the start of all meta-theorising.  When one parameterises a model it is only approximately right which leaves one with the problem of fixing it.  In this task it can be an extremely useful heuristic if one first undergoes a long and thorough ontological self-analysis. The Lewscogski auto-epistemic self measure enables one to determine the closest model trajectory that will enable hindsighted self-validation, but only in a technical sense.  Unfortunately this still leaves the most difficult part - writing the thing and getting it to work.  Despite these difficulties we propose such a framework, albeit from a recumbant and abstract position.  Further work is indicated.
