Me and My Own World

Posted Feb 26, 2012
As an obsessed software developer, it's easy to get lost in the virtual world especially when you enjoy finding out how things work and get pleasure from creating things out of thin air. Programming is an art; you imagine stuff and then translate it into tangible forms.

I love playing god in my own little universe, it's highly addicting, like those farming or zombie-killing games. It's satisfying to have loyal minions, ready to do your bidding as long as you speak their language.

I remember the movie, Matrix, the part where Neo saw the world as a series of green zeroes and ones. It's sad, really, to see the world in this simplistic manner. To see oneself as a brain contained within a human body, instead of a human being with a rational mind. To expect that for every request there's a response. Maybe this is my defense mechanism; thank God he keeps me sane, almost.

My mind always wanders. When I look at you with a blank stare, or when I suddenly space-out, or when I just smile pretending to have a clue of what's going on around me, please don't be offended. It's just me thinking of my next plan to tell them darn machines what to do. Hopefully I won't timeout on you :)
