eh a bit of musing while waiting for the mailman

how good a system is, is dependent on the hard drive more than anything. more than a CPU, even. a computer with a marginal cpu and solid state hard drive, is going to out-perform one with excellent cpu and standard hard drive.

upgrading memory is only going to help stop system freezing, if the freeze is happening from a shortage of memory. but more or super large amounts of memory, is not going to translate into “faster.” so if you think the more memory you have, the faster it will be — no. only thing memory does is handle the workload. and it’s performance ability it based on what the motherboard is designed to hold. to change that, you’d have to upgrade entire motherboard to newer (faster) standards.

so IF you have a “laggy” computer, the best thing you can do to speed it up is switch out the hard drive for something newer and faster. if the computer is REALLY old, and has only SATA 2 interface instead of SATA 3 — then don’t bother since the read write speeds are limited by that SATA 2. by older, am talking Vista systems and older.

if have windows 7 system or newer, should have SATA 3 capability– and using a solid state flash memory drive should then improve performance.

computers are a model prototype for the human brain — having more memory to remember more things at once does not necessarily make you smarter. being able to process data faster does not necessarily make you smarter. having more room to store data does not make you smarter. what makes you smarter is how fast you can access your information, and how fast you can sock it away.

and the terms are reversed, or mixed up. what we think of as “memory” is not equal to computer memory. computer memory is equal to how much data can be processed at one time. and human memory is more equated to hard drive. where the data is “stored.”

so there are three or four elements:
how much data can be processed in a value over time
how strong the processor is in relation to load
how much data can be stored
how quickly can data be retrieved and written

read times are always faster than write times

think about that and how it applies to human memory(hard drive) … the computer naturally slows down when writing data, because that is where accuracy is more necessary than time.

so people mis-remembering things could be a matter of originally writing those values too fast. maybe.

and it all comes down to load….. what exactly are you using your computer FOR? what are you using your brain FOR?


task management. priorities.

what decides priorities in computers is the I/O system.

do humans network? plug into each other and share resources? yep — and to the extent that you might be ill and sick in the head, only because something on your network has shifted a greater load to your cpu.

there is definitely connection in the human world, like there is between computers in the computing world. and i think we need to REALIZE that, and instead of treating only one human that can’t handle their load– must address the entire network. which in theory could be EVERYONE.

yep. so if more of your people are getting sick in the head, it is a network problem, more than a design problem of the individual. or a greater likelihood of being a problem within priorities of the network itself, rather than priorities established by the individual.

manic well might be only a matter of disengaging from that network, or heavy overload. and then all of a sudden you have more energy than you can handle.
