David Brin IIRC wrote a disturbing little story about a scientist who had created a virtually simulated world, inhabited by sapient electronic consciousnesses, who experienced an existence exactly like our own. The scientist's sense of his own reality was profoundly shaken when one of those artificial consciousnesses did exactly the same thing in its own world.

"Stones of Significance" probably, but Brin has written a lot about simulations and the singularity.  Also look for "Reality Check" which is a quick read.
