Dear Willard,

"Where causality stops, ecstasy begins".

I have just read this passage in chapter 7, "In His Own Image", of the book
"Computer Theology: Intelligent Design of the World Wide Web", by Bertrand
du Castel and Timothy M. Jurgensen (Midori Press, 2008).The text is
available on Google Books.

In the wake of Busa, who defined the computer as "il nipotino di Dio"
(God's grandson), it seems that God matters to informatics more than what
we think; there is even a new branch of theology dealing with computers!

I hope this may be of your interest.

Thank you!
Many regards.
