I have been interested in the CTMU for many years though I don't think I've ever agreed with any of it.

Here are some "papers" about the CTMU:


His 2020 paper talks about the Simulation Hypothesis, which I am a fan of.

I can barely understand any of his formal writings.

The Wikipedia page about him has some claims that make me feel concerned....


".....Langan has claimed that the George W. Bush administration staged the 9/11 attacks in order to distract the public from learning about the CTMU...."

Chris winning $250,000 on a game show is impressive though (which called him "The Smartest Man in America")

The CTMU is linked to "Mega Foundation" -

"....created to implement programs that aid in the development of severely gifted individuals and their ideas..." - it is called an "ultra-high IQ community".

Their Facebook page sometimes has CTMU quotes for their cover image...

Wikipedia has removed the dedicated CTMU page and now there is only one paragraph on it as part of the Chris Langan page:


which says that Chris Langan claims the CTMU "can prove the existence of God, the soul and an afterlife, using mathematics".

Here's a wiki on lots of CTMU topics:
