Computer Models of the Universe and Special Relativity

If you were to write a computer simulation of the universe based on special relativity, you would only be simulating the universe according to one observer.

In order to reproduce the reality of another observer a whole other simulation would have to be run in addition to original.

That could be seen as a weakness of special relativity. In other words, an open problem for scientists is how to write a single computer simulation of a universe that accounts for the relativistic measurements of all observers.
