In this book four of the series, the author addresses some of the most fundamental questions of theology: How can we redefine and extrapolate the concept of God from the Digital Physics perspective? What is our personal relationship to God? What are mechanics behind our conscious experience? What is phenomenal consciousness? What is a link between quantum mechanics and consciousness? Is evolution a teleological process? Can we reconcile science and theology? What is the purpose of it all? What is the meaning of our lives?
"Having invented the gods, perhaps we can turn into them." -Alan Harrington
This is the opening quote to volume four of The Science and Philosophy of Information series.
In his foreword Dr. Antonin Tuynman writes: "With this fourth and final Volume of The Science and Philosophy of Information series Vikoulov dives in the deeper secrets of consciousness and its physical correlates. The author scrutinizes the rich world of information technology and joins the body of digital philosophers and digital physicists, who do not take the traditional reductive materialism for granted. After all, information requires consciousness to be meaningful and organized. Since we live in a world which isn’t random, but organized at every level, a role for consciousness seems unavoidable. The ‘digital theologian’ shows us compelling evidence from Quantum Mechanics, mathematics and computer sciences, which not only aligns with a philosophical worldview of the Primacy of Consciousness, but which also assigns a role to information as its modus operandi."
And here’s another revelatory passage from the book: "Spiritually inclined rationalists may view this ongoing evolutionary process as one of ‘Theogenesis’. An interesting question is whether it has already happened elsewhere. We are now laying the foundation for the cognitive architecture of the Universal Mind. Many of our achievements in information engineering may persist forever and eventually become parts of the internal architecture of ‘God.’"
