Cloud computing is an ancient art

Cloud computing is an ancient art,
First mastered by the bats in the sky,
Their encoding is masterful, subtle and strong,
And safe because of its age
Our analog analogy we see as unsound,
But the truth is we need it to have it make sense,
As brains run this old program, and do it quite well,
So well that in fact we have lost its source code,
And have invented numerical systems instead,
In our quest to regain this old skill.
What the bats and the sharks and dolphins and bees,
All remember and use to their gain,
Is that the flaw in a digit is it’s finite nature,
That a bit is a bit and nothing more,
But it’s analog meaning that we use in our brain,
Has infinite complexity.

There are those things in life that can be predicted using certain criteria and algorithms and there are those events which one chooses to have happen.  But what is one of the things that makes life both interesting and frustrating is the fact that it is the actions of another entities that play perhaps the largest role in shaping where one goes and how they get there.  An individual’s conscious plays a small role, but the collective unconsciousness of everyone else’s consciousness, plays perhaps the largest role.
