Just like the cool computers…..

It doesn’t happen as often as it should but occasionally I go through my computer take all the old files and documents that I no longer need and move them to the recycling bin. This electronic purge is a way of cleaning out the memory to make way for the new things that will be coming. While doing my last memory cleanse I became jealous of the computer’s ability for amnesia. I can imagine a day when we have computer envy – wishing that we could retain and delete information like our computer. If only we could be less human and more computer like could replace our quest for knowing the divine. Indeed we already seem to be willing to turn away from the reality before us to the cool desired perfection of the machine. Perhaps that is the interest in the wearable technology. If we can’t actually be a computer we can be as close to it as possible making the trend to merge our bodies with computers almost understandable. I mean, wouldn’t you like to be one of the cool kids?p010vl4q (1)
