Death, life, thoughts, and a quote, not necessarily in that order

Expounding on thoughts from a recent post.

There's a lot going on in the world. There always has been, even though it seems sometimes that our moment on this plane of existence is more tumultuous than any other; and maybe it is to us personally. There is a universal certainty, though, that we cushion in beliefs of religion or stoic acceptance of inevitability, or we avoid thinking about alltogether for whatever our fears or reasons. I do not care for dwelling on the fact that one day I will cease to be in this state as I am now; that daily entropy takes it's toll and eventually there will be no fuel left for my spark. However, thoughts creep in around the edges, let in ever more quickly with each aching muscle or popping joint or grey hair, if one is still rooted to hold any color. But I steadfastly try and remember that this dawning of thoughts and emotions each day is a meal comprised of the tastiest decadent treats imaginable, and to savor every bit before the plate has been depleted. You could certainly counter that your plate is filled with ill palatable substances or that you have no plate at all, or that someone has tainted what was originally set before you. I can not deny that it is different for every one of us. I can only choose for myself how to move forward, because move forward we all inexorably will. Part of my journey is to reconcile a journey, to be called such, inevitably has an end. Words such as those below by Mr. Dawkins, that sparked this essay, give me solace. For any who find interest in the flickering light from my path, I offer it up for your consumption also. Peace and love, friends.

"We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Arabia. Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively exceeds the set of actual people. In the teeth of these stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here. We privileged few, who won the lottery of birth against all odds, how dare we whine at our inevitable return to that prior state from which the vast majority have never stirred?"

    Here are several of the functions of a computer and
    its parts Memory is one of these. A computer can’t consider a option to
    a problem unless it recognizes what it wants. This short article will aid you recognize
    what goes into making a computer ( and also its memory.
    You might likewise wish to know what parts of a
    computer system compose a hard disk.

    Computer system components.
    Computer systems contain various parts, which together are
    called the computer’s “hardware.” While the parts each offer a
    details feature, they also serve to complement each other, so the whole system needs to work as a
    natural system to operate at its best. This overview will certainly offer you an review of hardware and assist you choose the ideal

    features are input, storage space, as well as output.
    It likewise has elements for input and also output, such as a disk drive.
    A computer system can do every one of these features, or any type
    of combination of them. Flash memory card, hard drives, and also
    other portable storage devices prevail examples. The computer system’s cpu carries out these features, in addition to other necessary features.

    An IC is a miniaturized collection of digital components made of silicon, which includes memory
    chips. A USB memory stick includes a memory chip that provides one
    gigabyte of NAND blink memory. Similar to human memory,
    computer systems learn and remember things in a different way than we do.

    However, semantic networks are utilized to program computers to find out and remember certain points.

    Elements that compose a computer system’s operating system
    The operating system is a large system that is split into
    different components that collaborate to execute a range of
    features. There are 8 parts in an os: memory,
    data system, input/output tool, procedure
    memory, and software. Each of these elements plays an essential
    function in computer operation. Along with managing computer system sources,
    the os likewise develops the user interface as well as implements applications software.
