Is God A Virus? | Echopraxia

Posted by in categories: alien life, mathematics, physics, supercomputing

Echopraxia is a book set in one of the most interesting sci-fi universes that I have covered on this channel. It is technically a sequel to Blindsight, but it is not necessary that you read Blindsight to understand Echopraxia is set in the late 21 century. About 14 years after man’s first contact with alien life.

This book brings up one of the most interesting concepts I’ve ever encountered in any sci-fi book ever. And that is the concept of the “Digital Universe” and God as a Virus. Now this is a concept that comes from the field of digital physics, which keep in mind is all theoretical. It is based on the premise that the universe is pure mathematics at its base, every event that occurs can be thought of as a kind of computation. This could mean that the universe is a simulation, but that is not necessary for the idea to work.

The universe could itself be a giant computer, physics would be its software and matter, its hardware. Every movement of an electron would be a calculation in that vast supercomputer. In some models of the Digital Universe, matter itself is merely an instantiation of numbers.
