If it were only that simple. As I’m sure you know, you can easily drag and drop an icon on your desktop to a file, and many other easy tasks along these lines. TechTerms.com defines Drag and Drop as a “common action performed within a graphical user interface. It involves moving the cursor over an object, selecting it, and moving it to a new location. This is called ‘dragging’ the object.” You just have to lift up the mouse button to “drop” the object, or on a touchscreen you use your finger. Simple. Everything is in order and almost effortless. If you don't like what you have arranged, you can delete and rearrange it.
It’s not such a simple concept when you're dealing with people, or unproductive thoughts that loop in our minds, or complex situations and events. They don’t drag and drop. Although, I will often make the attempt to drag and drop an issue, as if I’ve accomplished a task and made some kind of progress. A situation will be on my mind’s “desktop,” and I’ll file it neatly to the side, customizing my workspace, but not actually interfacing with the element.
As a society, we’ve become virtually hypnotized with technology and the momentous, rapid advances that we’ve grown to expect. And I'm not venturing into Virtual Reality here (later, for sure). However, I am surprised that predictive texting hasn’t taken over and completely written this topic, possibly even offering me several options for an ending. But what am I thinking - it’s predictive text. It will know which probable virtual reality I would want to actualize. Maybe "predictive context" is still being developed, or maybe I simply haven't purchased the Let Me Write Your Blog App.
All this to say, with the human element you have to interface and engage. No scripts. You have to work through the algorithms of anger, anticipation, and aspiration. You have to get muddy in the moment of madness, roll in realism, and stand wonderfully aware and in awe of splendor. Then you can drag and drop, and you'll probably need to defrag.
