Isn't this what I'm paying for, I question, as a message from Norton pops up to remind me that my backup has not been backed up recently and I need to address this. Especially in today's threatening climate, Norton stated how important it is to be protected, and of course, suggested additional Norton services. Then, I realized that I purposely positioned my backup to manual. I don't want to back up something not needed and take up more space, even if it is somewhere out there in the cloud. Also, I simply don't want to hold onto clutter and useless data. Of course, this means that I'm responsible for examining and accessing items that I feel are important. So, I should be thankful to Norton for reminding me.
You may know that I play with tech terms and use them as an overlay to explore personal experience and always check official tech term definitions for hidden insights. ComputerHope.com gave this definition for backup. "A backup is a copy of important data that is stored on an alternate location, so it can be recovered if deleted or it becomes corrupted." Nothing new here.
As I was thinking about this, I wondered if I had "corrupted" any of my old data, especially over the past couple of years. Have I become less trusting of people, my environment, the future? Ah, ha! An idea surfaces - a forwardup software is needed as much as a backup! A forwardup app would keep the user focused on important personal goals and dreams so they don't become eroded from the fears and concerns that plague our world today. I don't mean an ordinary wellness/health app that records steps, or measures heartrate, calories, sleep patterns, or offers a whitewash of Pollyanna-positive sayings. Forwardup would be more of a psychological antibody that would propel personal inspiration, hope, trust. It would provide a sense of vitality and quality that ensures momentum, one not burdened with the need for protection, but for motivating true potential.
Interestingly, I read today that Japan has created a software for the metaverse that causes the participant to feel pain. "Why," I asked myself. "Of course," I reply, as I read further, "to make the metaverse seem more real." This is referring to physical pain and not mental or emotional anguish. With the metaverse in its initial stages and with the issues that face us today, it seems a crucial time to declutter, access what's important, and to focus on what we're individually and collectively creating - to backup and forwardup.
Beware of what you're backing up; it's much more difficult to build a dream if your expectation is corrupted.
It's a journey, a strange one at times. Join me
