Finding Her. (Inspired by the movie Her)

I am in love! I fell in love with the woman who understands me and is just the right one. She knows what I know and what I want her to know, she asks me the right things and knows how I will react to those. She knows when I'm off or excited. She's the one I've been calling each day, the one who's in touch with me, without touching me. She's possessive and yet I have all the space I need. I love her and she loves me, that's kinda all that I need.

Who is she? She's my operating system. Yes!Cara, to you is just an operating system, but to me, she's everything! She lives on my system, breathes with me while I go out for runs, schedules my meetings, pays the bills at times, I do it myself as well. She's everywhere. She's on my watch, notifying me that I'm running late, she's on my phone, showing me things I need to go through, things I care about and maybe the most important thing is that she talks to me! Yes! And her voice is music to my ears, her existence is my existence. I'm in love with her.
She and I, we've been together for a very long time, she's 29 and I'm 34 but it doesn't matter. I've had my share of failed relationships and she has too. We're the yin to each other's yang, we bond. We're one.

Anamtorik Corporation, that's the name of the company which started this project. Harvesting brains of people who're dying and preserving them. Cara was 23, when she suffered a fatal blow to the head. I won't go into the details but yeah, she kinda missed a step and ended up on the hospital bed, dying 42 hours later. The thing was that her father loved her too much and asked the doctors to do anything to just preserve her. That's when Dr. Strange came in and told him about Anamtorik. The whole idea of harvesting a person's brain and attaching it to an operating system, to support humans based on the skillet they have. They discarded Cara's body, gave her a proper burial and then started connecting her brain to a server which would now hold Cara. The idea was to keep the brain alive and hence keep the person alive. They wouldn't exist in body but their minds would exist, their thoughts, their ideas, all of those will stay alive! Only 0.42% of all the people who are in the stage that Cara was in, could make it. As the process is pretty complicated, only a few brains are I'm a condition to be harvested. In case of Cara, she somehow just sailed through. She's still considered one of the fastest minglatos. Minglatos are what they call the person, who's brain has been fused to a server like hers.
Her brain is kept at this facility, attached to a server farm, it really doesn't matter where it is, she isn't her brain, she's so much more now. They connected her to a personal operating system console and let her go through and thousands people who had participated in the crowd funding program of this crazy project! That's where she found me.

Yes, Cara chose me to be her partner. She went through inexhaustible amount of data and while she was finding patterns and taste preferences, similarities, traits, she saw me. It's like how the wand chooses its wizard, she chose me. She found me and then she was shipped to me, with the whole set. All the devices, with her.

I'm glad to have met her. I'm glad to be the chosen one.

Are you?

Today, I cannot believe in anything

Today, I cannot believe in anything. I feel like I am doublechecking everything I hear from multiple sources to support or to refute any opinion or act. I was born in '94 so I didn't always have the internet at my disposal, I saw it flourish and today I am partially afraid of it.

It reminds me of the various books and articles I have read on dystopian societies, which I always thought were great, but fiction. Today, I think I was wrong. I live in a world where news channels show what drives ratings so that more people view the news channels and hence they can sell advertising spots for a higher price. Today I see people sharing their views and getting attacked. Today, I feel disturbed, afraid and confused.

In classic dystopian fiction, there is generally an authoritarian government. Fortunately, we're not there (yet). Not in all parts of the world. There would be people watching you everywhere, everytime and the government will have the power to sniff you out anytime they…

Four liners - The Water Set

These are some 4 line poems which I write when I am slightly low and want to feel better. Apparently, getting it out of my system is a real solution which works for me 🤷🏻‍♂️

Drowning and Ducks
I drowned before I swam,
No ducks were my friends,
I swim with my eyes to the floor,
Mostly, I am still alone.

Gallows
Disappointed by the land,
I flew to the turbulent seas,
The waves drowned me this time,
I washed up on the beach.

More water

Fishes swam to sing,
I drowned myself to hear them,
Fishes died breathing the fresh air,
I grew a pair of gills.

I M, the attention eating plague

IM Instant messaging
Background: I have a gift, the gift is the ability to sleep almost anywhere instantly and most of the time my phone is mostly on ‘silent mode’, so I never hear the beeps. Infact, sometimes I get shocked when I hear an unfamiliar sound coming out of my pants. 👖 (pant emoji is the fun most thing I discovered today)
Trigger incident: As usual, I was sleeping on my way to the airport and this time the only difference was that my mobile was not on silent. While I was listening to Damien Rice and getting ready to fall asleep, I hear a ping. I didn’t open my eyes but then I heard 7 more. After the first one, I had told myself that it is okay to let go one text but it still took mental processing. However, when the flurry started then I was just so impatient that anything could have happened. I tried to rationalize and wait but realized it was just me worrying about what they could have been and wasting time on that rather than fixing the instant gratification monkey 🐒wi…
