Power Play !

I am a Programmer, and I developed an application

I coded it with the ability to think
I authorized it to make copies of itself

I made them talk, walk
I gave them senses to enjoy the rest of my creations
I also removed them after a shelf life

It made innumerable copies in no time
They started bonding with other applications
They started destroying other applications
They created operating systems

They have done so much good
They have done so much bad
They have altered their hard-disk
They want to get rid of their shelf life

Some claim their operating system is the best
Some claim they are the source
Some claim to control the operating system
Some claim there is no operating system
Some claim they have seen the operating system
They talk endlessly about themselves

For, they can do all they want, till I pull the plug (a.k.a) re-boot

ekantha said...

You are the creator and like all others who started something, you will probably end up losing your control. Liked the direction in which the possibilities in this one took me.

Arvind said...


Sure ;)




I am the creator :-? .....interesting !

Your post reminded me a lot of my favorite science fiction film 2001 a space odyssey. The cure to solving the most complex problems can just be pulling the plug! thanks for inspiring me to post what I have always wanted to.
