God as software engineer

In a piece titled “Geek Theologian,” KevinKelly talks with Christianity Today’s Katelyn Beaty
“When we make these virtual worlds in the future —worlds whose virtual beings will have autonomy to commit evil, murder, hurt, and destroy options— it’s not unthinkable that the game creator would go in to try to fix the world from the inside. That’s the story of Jesus’ redemption to me. We have an unbounded God who enters this world in the same way that you would go into virtual reality and bind yourself to a limited being and try to redeem the actions of the other beings since they are your creations. So I would begin there. For some technological people, that makes the faith a little more understandable.”
Difficult to noodle on such things and not recall the scene with The Architect in the later Matrix films.
