the worst thing about programming, is people. look, the play on words involving ‘misanthropy’ is no joke folks, i can only handle so much of friggin’ humans before i go … oh, not mad or anything. but anyway. i have antisocial tendencies & i ended up, after a tangled mess of semi-careers, programming computers. go figure.
but the damn people always manage to creep into the equation somehow. and in my mind when i’m coding i see their quizzical expressions, their furrowed brows, their determination in matters involving ‘what happens if i press the red button’ even if everything they’ve ever been told involves not touching the goddamn red button. is it so hard to keep
your their grubby paws off the red button? (don’t worry. it’s not you. it’s them).
now you see, if all i had to do was write things to humor myself, i’d be so easy. i’d never make typos or trnaspose things or put the wrong bit of information in the wrong box. & if i did it would be easy to fix because there would be some logic to the errors. and i’d be done by now! instead of sitting here trying to think of what sorts of unthinkable things the end user might do. it’s like studying murphy’s unified quantum theory. for dummies. i didn’t say that outloud. oh, no, i didn’t.
[voiceover] . . . “questions regarding the fundamental structure of our universe, its origin, evolution and its age; the reconciliation of the mathematical concept of continuum and limitless continuity with the concept of space-time; the reductio ad absurdum; the concept of an acausal connection active in the spacetime continuum, where according to Carl Gustav Jung and Wolfgang Pauli, “our primary mathematical intuitions could be arranged before we become conscious of them” – with the number being primordial, pre-existent to our consciousness; the essence of the material body, that is extension itself and its universal non-local connections; the shortcoming of the Cartesian coordinate system with its patchwork of bounding surfaces and coordinates; the indeterminate notion of a point particle; the space composed of points; the relationship of space to matter and light to time; the res cogitans and the res extensa; the cosmological position of man and the inevitability of the weak anthropic principle, as demonstrated within a cycle-interval of 1-5-9-13 stem cells – an evolutionary cycle that is an integral, coherent, zusammenhangend part of the 27 stem cells of The Life Sequence.“
so i suppose i shall simply go mad. or blonde. hmm. decisions.
