The main title is the name of Ben Affleck's firm in "The Accountant."
The subtitle was suggested by religious remarks in the previous post.

From "The Man Who Tried to Redeem the World with Logic" —

"The following June, 1945, von Neumann penned
what would become a historic document entitled
'First Draft of a Report on the EDVAC,' the first published
description of a stored-program binary computing machine—
the modern computer."

From "The Man Who Tried to Redeem the World with Logic" —

"To store the programs as data, the computer would need
something newa memory. That’s where Pitts’ loops 
came into play.  'An element which stimulates itself
will hold a stimulus indefinitely,' von Neumann wrote
in his report . . . ."
