Bloatware. It's everywhere - news, phones, bodies, traffic, social media, egos. So many things today seem bloated and out of proportion. I merely want my coffee black, not a Cold Foam Dark Nitro. I appreciate an actual phone call from a friend. When I check out of Amazon I don't want insurance, recommendations, care what someone else bought, want to know what I recently viewed, or to continue watching anything. I just want to check out because I'm probably avoiding something I really should be doing anyway. I don't need to check the weather online before I go outside. I don't need to know how many steps I take in a day, or ten foods to avoid, or 50 best anything. It's bloatware. Although thinking about it, I do like the add-on tasting stations at Costco.
As you may know, I'm fascinated with computer terminology and use it as an overlay for personal exploration. Here's Techopedia's definition for bloatware. "Bloatware is software that has unnecessary features that use large amounts of memory and ram. Software comes to be known as bloatware when it becomes so unwieldy that its functionality is drowned out by its useless features." Also, it is unwanted software included with a new computer, like games, shopping outlets, and trial software.
I am quite capable of being unwieldy and drowning out my own functionality. I don't need superfluous news, financial advisors preaching doomsday, or alarming health articles. These all need to be uninstalled. They drain the system.
And then there is the camouflaged bloatware that you may not know exists. It's not considered something extra; it's a part of the whole. It's just the way it is, or life is, or the way things are. You can't change it. Beware. That is until the system becomes perceptively slower - fragmented, clogged, continually looping. I've been there. Our governing system is often there. This congestion and sluggishness appears often during transitional times when updating to a new system of beliefs and deleting old ones. When I feel this happening for myself, I check my inner dialogue. Clicking past excuses, pop-up emotions, unsolicited add-on advice, pre-installed responses is a significant start. And yet, not having them in your system to have to click past is better. Going straight to the source is optimal, always.
