still ...tis digital kids

and perhaps you know not still tis digital kids

my brain is made of golden chips
that's why that alone works mostly...
hold one...
will you
then someone will say
a diamond one is now on ..
will be news....

the chip will ask a question
is it now on?
diamond slow down
better on than off ...

so digital God gave a hint
one for that
zero we can't say
we all know not

hence one and a dot
keep fixing a lot...

genetic progeny
in each slot
a vertical dash
then shall come a dot

bang on the given slot...

a one and a zero
in turn off and on

one at a time
else both shall be gone

If I understand it correctly, this is an interesting way of describing how the digital age has taken our minds and answers life's questions in a binary Yes or No way.

If I am correct, I would have liked the vocabulary to be a bit more reflective of the subject matter. I know it is free form, but with the rhymes, I would have preferred a little more attention to flow.

Thanks for making me exercise the thought process tonight.

Just yes and no is enough to be going with, without going into binary codes, then gold and diamond chips..
I wish they would use more gold in electronics..
They still can't get anywhere near the random excellence of our minds plus the brain that is behind it, saying brain it is a random electronic field energised by a random creature.
Did you ever expect a logically thinking creature to come out the other side..
I wonder who or what runs the stabilizer field that holds all this together, and does it ever die or does it just change state from hiding in a physical body to the freedom of eternity in free space..

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Just an echo!

Our generation laughed at parents not being able to set clocls on VCR's. Now we get the payback via our children wondering why we can't pick right up on using computers lol. But at least we can say we saw computers go from punch cards and room size to diamond driven lap tops. BTW, it appears that beyond diamonds they are exploring using some kind of foam matrix. off and off.................stan

foam too must have 99 percent water
best conductor and cheapest is water
quicker electrocution
no evidence ..
like burnt up wires
