Langan has developed his own "theory of the relationship between mind and reality" which he calls the "Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe (CTMU)"
He calls his proposal "a true 'Theory of Everything', a cross between John Archibald Wheeler's 'Participatory Universe' and Stephen Hawking's 'Imaginary Time' theory of cosmology." In conjunction with his ideas, Langan has claimed that "you can prove the existence of God, the soul and an afterlife, using mathematics."
I believe in the theory of evolution, but I believe as well in the allegorical truth of creation theory. In other words, I believe that evolution, including the principle of natural selection, is one of the tools used by God to create mankind. Mankind is then a participant in the creation of the universe itself, so that we have a closed loop. I believe that there is a level on which science and religious metaphor are mutually compatible.
In 1967 Zuse also suggested that the universe itself is running on a grid of computers (digital physics); in 1969 he published the book Rechnender Raum (translated into English as Calculating Space). This idea has attracted a lot of attention, since there is no physical evidence against Zuse's thesis. Edward Fredkin (1980s), Juergen Schmidhuber (1990s), Stephen Wolfram (A New Kind of Science) and others have expanded on it.
I see god as a "function/interface" and his "creative potential" as the "information" which the function/interface processes. God processes information.
"f(x)" and "x" cannot non-exist. Only an illusion can make them seem non-existent, but this is not truth.
We are gods and we exist infinitely (we cannot die).
Our creative potential is finite.
Oneness and fragmentation are states which we will always reach rotationally.
We are all assembled out of information, out of this creative potential and we are all a part of f(x) or god. Different physical attributes and different ways of thinking arise because the godparts are attached to different kinds of information. What we believe or not depends on the information we accept as truth or not. Therefore, we are all programmed. Our beliefs are information assembled into a structure/software/program/truth. Just like a software program is created out of assembled information and allows only commands which the software is programmed for and disallows commands the software is not programmed for. The "how" information is assembled is important. How information is assembled into a structure/software/program/truth in our brains largely determines what new information fits our brain's structure/software/program/truth. If the information we receive fits our truth, we are more likely to accept it as truth. If the information we receive does not fit our truth, we are more likely to not accept something as truth and mark the information invalid.

1).What books can i read on Black/Gray and White Magik?
2). Would you recommend learning about these things?
3). Would you recommend they be practiced?
