Control, Alt, Delete
Why cant there be a Control. Alt, Delete for the universe. I know I would have reset things more than once. There never would have been a shuttle disaster. Nor would there have been the attacks on 9/11. But then again, how do we know that there isnt one and we just dont have access to it. There are times when this world is just too much for me and I just want things to stop. I want to start over and get it right this time.
CONTROL, ALT, Delete. On a MacDonalds computer that is Ctrl, Alt, Cheeseburger. I learned that from someones writing many years ago.
CONTROL, ALT, DELETE. To start over and hopefully not make the same mistakes the second time that you made the first. There are many things in my life I would have done differently. Different directions that I would have taken in my life. I would have done some things earlier and changed my life path in the process. Friends that I would have spent more time with. People that are now gone that I would have let know how important they were to me.
CONTROL, ALT, DELETE. To reset the computer. To shut down the programs that just arent working. And in my life, so much is not working properly. I am sitting here writing this because I cant do my work because a program isnt working properly.
To make relationships work is so much harder than making a computer program work. They [computer programs] dont have any feelings (or at least I dont think they do.) The real world isnt that easy. To fix things in the real world means that I need to understand what they [those with whom I interact] need. I cant even fully understand what I need let alone anyone else. All I can do is try to do my best and help where I can and hope that others will do the same for me.
CONTROL, ALT, DELETE. The three keys that I still want to find on the keyboard of the universe. And in 57 years someone will find them and this universe will be over. (Well, thats what Isaac Newton calculated as the end of the universe and the coming of the apocalypse.) Who knows, the next universe may be even harder to understand that this one and we will be nostalgic for the simplicity of this life
