In His own image

If you describe reality in mathematical or logical terms, as for instance in the Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe, it’s natural to think of the cosmos as the output of a function in some extended metaphysical sense, which brings a whole new meaning to Genesis 1:27: “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”

Mind you, I don’t attribute any particular theological or philological significance to this textual association. It’s a striking coincidence which may incite further thought, nothing more.
