I reckon a bigger problem with being human is the fact that no matter how good you are anything, you can still f it up. You can mess up while driving, or walking, or making an important economic or political decision. "Human error" causes so many problems everywhere.
That's the result of oversights and assumptions that people make, it's just our brain's way of lowering the amount of information that has to be processed. What I was talking about in the first post is how we always feel the need to double-check our past selves and the need to leave reminders for our future selves. Everything we do is for our past and future selves.
Our brain doesn't just forget the information though, it just compresses and archives it. This is why a very small thing like a string tied around your finger can remind you to do a very complex task. Our future selves need those reminders as triggers or shortcuts to that data; otherwise our brains seek-time is the worst thing you'll ever see!
As for checking our past selves, every process should have some form of error correction.
this is outrageous, LB it makes no sense but because I wanted to be part of it IM the spammer, I see what is going on here, this is whats known as forum snobbery, no the quality of my posts are not as indepth and helpful as the masters of C++.com, but im a beginner of both coding and the internet, this is me trying to communicate for real.
