What I had heard was, while investigating string theory they noticed the same "code" that is used in simulations/simulators. It's a very unique code specific to simulations.

*Damn, my head hurts now
That's just tautology. If we define us as anything then the statement "we are ____" is true in any case. The only thing we know is that we are thinking, what is doing the thinking is not certain. We can label that thinking as "We" or "I" but we do not know if it is corporeal or just a computer simulation.

this really should not be a debate about what the word "real" means and more of a debate about weather or not we are created/simulated by some other intelligent life of some sort...

What the hell does that mean? You're saying that like it's factual

And time is a real tangible thing.

time is on a plane, speed varies according to where you are near it, etc

it has been shown that black holes are strong enough to suck in time correct? or maybe that is a theory, idk

in that sense it is tangible

Well, it is science. It is all about proving something even it sounds totally ridiculous.
