This open access book chronicles the rise of a new scientific paradigm offering novel insights into the age-old enigmas of
existence. Over 300 years ago, the human mind discovered the machine code of reality: mathematics. By utilizing abstract thought
systems, humans began to decode the workings of the cosmos. From this understanding, the current scientific paradigm emerged,
ultimately discovering the gift of technology. Today, however, our island of knowledge is surrounded by ever longer shores
of ignorance. Science appears to have hit a dead end when confronted with the nature of reality and consciousness. In this
fascinating and accessible volume, James Glattfelder explores a radical paradigm shift uncovering the ontology of reality.
It is found to be information-theoretic and participatory, yielding a computational and programmable universe.
