So, you ever wonder...
Posted May 9, 2001 - 15:08:18

...whether your computer can hear what you're saying? I mean, take for example Orange yelling at his printer earlier today. It jammed a couple times, and he went on a tirade of foul language that could rival a sailor. But it seemed that the more he swore, and the angrier he got, the more the printer jammed. It didn't start working until after he calmed down.

Long after.

This makes me wonder. I mean, we - as human beings - think of ourselves as life. But what is life? I mean, all we really exist as are electrical impulses in the brain... and our technology is run by electricity... Complex symbols telling it what to do. Is it really that far fetched to think that our computers, TVs, printers, monitors, VCRs, Microwaves, etc. haven't developed an intelligence of their own? And I don't mean Artificial Intelligence, AI is structured, and would be outside created. I mean Real Intelligence. Because it didn't happen on purpose...

But does that make it bad? I don't know. But I'm going to keep being nice and polite to my computer in the meanwhile...
