ok so if computational processes are beings that inhabit computers, people create programs to conjure those spirits and you have no magical power ability whatsoever then is there any hope for becoming a wizard

Yes, just read the Holy Texts: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_C_Programming_Language

I can't believe I have to write spoilers to a textbook, but here it goes. Read at your own peril.

In the last two chapters the curtain is pulled back and you get to see how the wizard's magic works. It's part of the book's "story", they start with saying the computer science is not really a science but has more in common with magic. But this is not approving, they want it to mature into science and they gradually reveal what goes on behind the scene. Early science was also connected to magic and esotericism, hence the alchemist on the cover of the book. I think it is fitting because many people seem to be stuck in the "programming is reciting spells" phase for an embarrassing amount of time.

But yes, if you read SICP, it will teach you what you need to know to become a wizard and more.
