Path of Technology

October 2, 2011

I am following a path in life, one which will not let me leave, or abandon it. That is the path of technology, the path of the cursed computer.

Without luck I have tried several times to leave and run desperately in the opposite direction that the electronic world is buried in. It is overwhelming to this feeble old mind of mine. I am unable to follow, and keep abreast of all the modern innovations, the new play toys that are flooding from it’s ever widening womb.

That would seem rather strange for one of my kind. I was a radio operator in the 1950s, flying all over the world as one who knew the intricacies of electronics. That was in the 1950s, this is almost twelve years after the turn of the century,  sixty some odd years in the future.

The world of this nature is beyond me. It replaced me as an Air Force radio operator, with a small black box. That was embarrassing to say the least. However, my moral has been boosted considerably due to the fact that now the whole air crew is being replaced by drones, that fly with out a crew. There is one on the ground that control the drones by some sort of remote control

Electronics, the computer etc., replaced me as a crew member. Now, I am learning that it is replacing the very career that followed my Air Force adventure. It is fast destroying the  Post Office, the agency that I spent twenty five years at, following the twenty in the Air Force.

Now that I can sort of sit back and laugh at the world, I took on the hobby of the computer. That was fine and dandy, till a nasty ole’ virus came and messed up my world. I had not prepared for the unseen enemy, and it snuck up on me, and totally smeared my world of computerizing.

Had the antique machine of mine purged. Wow, that did take care of the virus. However, it also cleared everything else. After that I was not able to re-establish any sort of contact with that mysterious-unseeable world filled to the brim with all sorts of interesting things.

Tried several times unsuccessfully to re-establish contact. When I used the phone to call, all I got were recordings, and endless menus. Not a good thing for a person of my age. Rage took over, and this old nightmare of a machine almost ended up in the alley. Anger at the recordings and menus, and anger at the machine itself, why did it have to be so doggoned complex?

I have found out that there are various methods to guard against this snake in the grass. Too many ways for me to number. I summarized that if there are so many ways that it can sneak up on you, that what ever I decided on would be ineffective, due to the many cracks in the wall, that it could slither through, it would find and flow through one that I had not guarded against.

So with a final outburst of silent anger, I decided to just give it all up as a bad, very bad thing. No, and again no, that was not to be. When I called and cancelled the avenues of the internet, and they responded by shutting it all down, I got a very frantic phone call.

“Dad, what have you done, my computer will not respond, and my college courses are in there, also our finances, what have you done?” This came from my daughter in another city. I was unaware that she was tied into this thing.

So, I went through all the worn paths to again engage into the internet world. This time seems, —so far— to have been successful, and here I am again, facing this screen which mirrors the complete world. Again I will let it engulf me, and swallow me as it did in the past.

Seems to  me that I have gotten myself embedded in a path of destiny that is unavoidable to me. I am destined to forever pound the keys, and stare at a screen full of unknowns.

Speak wisdom to a fool, and he will call it foolishness

THE TRUE STAFF OF LIFE:
ROMANS 10:9-10

YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH, “JESUS IS LORD,” AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, YOU WILL BE SAVED.

FOR IT IS WITH YOUR HEART THAT YOU BELIEVE AND ARE JUSTIFIED, AND IT IS WITH YOUR MOUTH THAT YOU CONFESS AND ARE SAVED.

ECCLESIASTES –
[9] The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
[10] Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
There is no new thing under the sun, what was somebody’s past, is our future. Prophecy is the relating of past history.

Romans 8:
[29] For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
[30] Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified

EPHESIANS 1:
[4] According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

REVELATION 17:
[8] The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
——————————————————————-
We are eternal entities, being ordained prior to the foundation of the world. That is, those of us who have our names in the ‘Book of life, from the foundation of the world.’
