Well, evidently I have been un-deleted!
Thanks to all, and any who are responsible. I was quite worried that everything I had written had been lost forever. ( not that it would be a great loss to humanity ) Just the time spent, in thinking it, and writing it.
This however, gives me food for thought.
Just as my posts, suddenly disappeared, and I ceased to exist here on OS. That could happen to all of us! Think about it. We have all become so dependent on modern technology. Our computers, our cell phones, i-pods etc, etc. All that could be wiped out, simply by a person or persons who had maliciousness in their heads. It could all be wiped out by a sudden outburst, from that which gives us life here on Earth. A solar flare, could wipe out all our communications in a matter of seconds! We could suddenly find ourselves plunged back into the dark ages. Do we rely too heavily, on these electronic gadgets? People talk of the demise of the printed word, on paper. Yes books can be burned, they can be eaten by worms. However we have lasted centuries with books. What of these modern forms of writing? Will they still be around centuries from now? Will our music survive? All these text files, sound and video files, even computer chips are not at all indestructible. What about all those floppy disks, that are now useless? Even CD's don't last very long, the ones you burn on a computer. They supposedly only last about five years! Then take a computer hard drive. One good magnet, and they are history.
I think we should rethink this idea of putting everything on computer files. What would happen to humanity, if everything were lost overnight. All our knowledge, our personal records, our music and culture. All of it gone in a flash. Now that's scary!
