I Need a New Hard-Drive - For My Mind!

If only I could run down to Tigerdirect and purchase a new hard drive to properly run this new operating system I've been working from since last February.

I'd format, reinstall a fresh copy, install some blocking software and antivirus programs, re-install all my 'loads' so I'm not relearning simple things such as math and language, and start over.

I'd need a big one, don'tcha think? Not sure if 80 gigs is big enough now to hold all these programs and run things effectively.

Then, I'd reinstall select files, such as camping with my kids, memories of my granddaughter's birth and me catching her, memories of living on the commune as a kid, jams and bar gigs that I've done, my friends, my lovers, seeing a black bear come into our campsite and telling my Dad, "hey, look at the big doggy!" and walking stark-naked down Roseglen Crescent in the rain, swishing my feet in the road gutters as the muddy cold water blackened me almost to my knees, my good Sunday church dress tucked in my armpit, so it wouldn't get wet and I wouldn't get in trouble. All my pictures would be fixed, maybe even glamourized, and cropped; resaved to my new hard drive.

But, not sure if I'd install the memories of my Ex, or if I would just leave those files partitioned, separate from everything else. In the 'Vault', 'quarantined' so to speak...

Damn, the updates alone would take forever, though...

Thanks for the idea, Cowboy...!

If only we could treat our lives, and our loves, the way we treat our pc's...constantly updating our programs, researching and downloading new ones, interacting and spending multiple hours with them, upgrading the equipment and oohing and ahhing at how well it works...cleaning, cherishing, drooling over new video cards and monitors.

Life would be so much simpler if ours brains truly had the functions and abilities of our computers, but then, we wouldn't have this: now would we?

Hi Elle,

"Life would be so much simpler if ours brains truly had the functions and abilities of our computers,"

Simplicity. The simpler the better, but not too simple. Meaning, we can still "progress", so long as it's not being irresponsible.

but then, we wouldn't have this: now would we?"

Blogland? Why wouldn't we? It would just be a lot quicker. Although, the safety measures would have to pretty amazing, to protect you from a brain freeze! Therefore, I'm in favour of the natural method of evolution. There's enough messing around going on with our heads already, by technology (for one).

Love? We'd still have that too. Or would we? As stated above, the consequences could be disastrous. (To our brains, to our emotions, to our dreams, to our very spirit.) Therefore, I believe the natural method is the safer choice. (Hmm... I'd volunteer to be the "guinea pig", if thought people would ask me the right questions. And, then act appropriately apon hearing the answers.)

Cheers,
addy

Addy, having Blogland filled with a bunch of computers, without any hearts or emotions attached to them, would be like the proverbial chimps typing Shakespeare in a room - well, that DOES happen here, to some extent! LOL

Not sure I'm understanding your last lines, though...are you proposing that the 'natural method of evolution,' or, weaning out the weaker genetic codes through selectivity, applies to you, as well?

I read something interesting, stirred by your comments:

Giraffes have long necks. The common explanation for how the giraffes evolved these long necks that we learned in school was that a rare mutation in a giraffe's ancestor produced a slightly longer neck which allowed it to reach higher on trees to get a few more leaves (like a tall NBA player can make more baskets). Thus when times were tough, the long-necked giraffes could survive marginally better than ones with shorter necks because they could eat the leaves higher up in the trees. Over time more mutations leading to slightly longer necks occurred occasionally and each time these MUTANT giraffes survived better than ones with shorter necks because they could take advantage of the additional food supply available to them. Gradually, over millions of years the giraffe we see today developed through the accumulation of these many long-neck mutations. Good, common sense explanation, right? Well some evolutionists don't buy it. They suggest that there are alternative explanations that make just as much sense. For example, they note that male giraffes fight it out to see who gets to breed the females and in these fights they use their necks extensively; the one with the stronger neck usually winning; i.e., maybe the guys with the longer necks got the females


Sort of like in here, isn't it? But here, while the males with the longest appendages would seem to have the advantage, this is not holding true: it's the males with the strongest communication skills who get the females.

You said: "I'd volunteer to be the "guinea pig", if I thought people would ask me the right questions. And, then act appropriately apon hearing the answers.)"

Clarification request, please?

Oh, and why am I now back to 'cheers'...?

Life is about all experiences, good and bad. I am glad I cant choose what I remember, I would probably cheat myself out of something very important without even knowing it. I need my painful memories as much as the good ones. Its a part of who I am.

BUT....while the puters of today might think faster than the average "Joe" or "Jane," it was the human brain that invented the chips and mother boards and all that mechanical crap.

And while I have no personal exeprience, I am told by others that computers make LOUSY lovers....

I will say one thing for this marvelous invention....it has opened up the remote possibilities that people who would actually never talk to each other can not converse in blogville.

I actually have a few friends like that here in AdultFriendFinder.....women would not give me the time of day in real life...chat away....some even with their boobs hanging out for all to see.

You're right, Marco, of course...I am who I am because of where I've been, the good, bad, and fugly mixed together. But, when someone comments on how they are waiting for the time when I no longer think about my Ex, this is what occurred to me.

Gentle, computers make LOUSY lovers, as they're always breaking down, their software is quite fallible, and easily corrupted, but geez, the visuals they can put in one's head! LOL

Well, the boobs are tucked back in, now, as they were stirring up way too much controversy...I just found out about the 'thumbnails' in the chatroom (whoa, ya mean, you can SEE me?) hehehe

I'd talk to you even at a Dunkin' Donuts, Gentle, but I can't promise that the boobies wouldn't accidentally bulge out once in a while!

Sorry, shannee, didn't mean to miss you, but can't add much to your comment, hon. All I can do is agree, and give you a:

"Life would be so much simpler if ours brains truly had the functions and abilities of our computers" ... until it crashed without a current backup. lol

Don't forget plenty of RAM...don't want to run slowly with all the new operating functions!

Cute post!

1girl, wanna do a format together? I'll help ya build a brand spankin' new one, or maybe I might get distracted just by the spanking...LOL (((hugs)))

Thanks, Horny!!! Oh, that RAM...I'm at 512 and apparently that's BARE-ASSED minimum nowadays! But, if I could increase the RAM in my brain, the dreams I could have...LOL
