We present schemes for quantum simulation of geometry. In particular, we discuss how to implement a synthetic background curved space-time, as well as how  to construct synthetic boundary conditions, that is, artificial topology. A relevant ingredient in our approach is the possibility to mimic an extra artificial dimension by the careful control of internal degrees of freedom. We finally present further long term avenues for quantum computation as applications for Number Theory.
