Life ““ The Hardware & Software 3

Life — The Hardware & Software

Life can be equated to a combination of Hardware and Software. Your body is the hardware and your mind the software. Just as we have different forms of Hardware with varying capacities and capabilities starting from the main frame computers to PC’s, the human being are also in different forms shapes sizes and capabilities. The tall & short, Fat and lean, able bodied and the differently abled. Every one is capable of performing, provided they understand themselves.

Software is designed to execute various tasks, taking into consideration the capabilities of the hardware and understanding the limitations. Similarly the mind has to program the execution of the tasks taking into consideration what is expected.

If you have observed, well written software bring out the desired result, while a software written in a hurry and without proper thinking, leads to BUGS, which will lead to wrong results and may sometimes cause the execution of the program to crash, resulting in the result not delivered.

Similarly our mind is capable of performing tasks, which could bring out good results beneficial to one and all. However, invariably, in this jet age most of us fail to understand this and program the mind to perform tasks, which are selfish and self centered. A god task is that which takes into account the entire community of human beings as a whole and performs for the good of one and all.

Finally, the hardware, that is the computer, also has a life span due to wear and tear. The time comes when the Hard disk fails or some critical part of the computer fails to respond leading to system crashes. Life is also similar. The aging process in human beings, leads to wear and tear of human body parts, which will ultimately lead to critical parts like the heart (equated to Hard Disk), brain (Equated to memory in the computer) failing to respond, leading to death.

That is life. Let us understand and program ourselves to benefit the society at large.

Your thoughts will be highly appreciated. Discussion on this is most welcome.
