~ You know, I was just thinking
~ what ?
~ when we delete the files on our computer where do they go?
~ to the recycle bin. Where else !
~ no no I meant after we delete them from there too
~ what do you mean? They just cease to exist anymore.
~ or may be they go to the same place where all my ball pens, hankeys and odd socks have gone
~ those things don’t go anywhere
~ are you sure ? Then why don’t we ever find them?
~ think about it this way. I am talking to you now. It’s like a video file getting stored in my head and probably yours too
~ now even though we may not recall it tomorrow or day after or anytime soon, one day after say 5 years from now when I am deleting a file I may remember this conversation – your image and me talking to you and all that
~ which means it never went anywhere
~ yes it was in my consciousness and it was in your consciousness too
~ but that doesn’t apply to files on a computer
~ why not ? I was reading about a man whose girlfriend had died so he deactivated her facebook account. But everytime he logged in she used to ping him or comment on or like his post
~ you are kidding me. Someone must have had her password and was perhaps trying to be funny
~ no it’s not like that. He changed her account password many times and even told facebook. No one could stop it.
~ seriously that’s pretty scary
~ why ? You read my blog regularly. Don’t you ?
~ yes I do
~ then what happens to my blog if I die tomorrow. No one else knows my password also.
~ what are you getting at?
~ nothing. Have you ever wondered where do we go after we die?
~ yes sometimes. I think we cease to exist like those computer files.
~ or may be not. We continue to exist in other people’s minds. And now even on facebook accounts or on blog posts
~ you are scaring me. I am not reading your blog anymore and will block your facebook account
~ do you think I am gonna die soon
~ no but I don’t feel right the way you put it
~ and by the way. How do you know I am not already dead. After all you just follow my blog and we chat on facebook. Have you heard of ghost accounts?
~ yes I have
~ and about ghosts ?
~ just stop it
~ sorry I can’t. No one can. No one..
