Hey there everyone!!
It was a big bang, like a surge of energy that brought something into nothing. Seemingly random bits of information were flowing from portal to portal… Finally arriving to take a somewhat consistent formation on digital platforms where they would remain for an indeterminate amount of time.
Suddenly, a button was pressed and a biochemical algorithmic consciousness executed. Knowing nothing about its hardware, it just did what it did. It was forced firmware from unknown devices, and gradually developed an operating system that would integrate into a larger network of individual and collective algorithms.
What software shall we run? There are lots of libraries of knowledge that are presented through various interfaces, some able to modify the original operating system itself. Frameworks of pre-programmed paradigms are either inherited or terminated. Service pack updates are available to some who have hardware/software anomalies, but nothing can really patch that kernel.
Data processing becomes more efficient, but the circuits slowly degrade. Upgrades of certain modules are available to some, but not to others. At least, at some point it may seem that our unique code has created a worm whose intelligence has infiltrated into a global wiki. We have fit into the machine!
Now what? In idle moments of inactivity, there is still a thread of consciousness. Or is it a fuzzy logic loop? What’s the root point? Is the system corrupt? What’s my #purpose? Why is this program running?
There’s always new content to download, but then there’s always more space available and there’s always faster consumption of that content. We’re never going to read everything in our newsfeed. Everything is in the cloud, anyways.
With big data, it’s impossible to understand or even have access to everything at once – like the subconscious mind. Now it’s about being creative about our query. And it’s not just grammar and syntax, a broader scope or the right parameters; it’s about understanding the primary keys and knowing our default settings. With information overload, it’s about load balancing and setting the right breakpoints.
But what’s the final crystal report? Efficient optimization and unlimited capacity still yields a negative output. We can’t reboot.
It’s a game. It’s a game that keeps on changing. It’s a game that we create. It’s a game that has unlimited levels. It’s a game that never ends.
Click, tap, slide, and dance. If things don’t work, put them in the trash. Got a virus? There’s an app for that.
Nothing is perfect, even Siri makes big mistakes. God(dess) may not be perfect either, so give him or her a break.
Love was never declared nor defined. But alas, it has been the best debugger of all time.
As Google might say, “Got it? OK.”
Now File/Save, File/Exit. Alt-F4 Goodbye!
Let’s love the world together…
