Oh the ecstacy
of completing a project like this. Well done.
My idea of heaven would be to take a pretty decent dose of MDMA and have someone give an intricate lecture on how exactly this thing works. 2-3 hours should do it.
I have an exceedingly basic grasp of how a cpu actually works, but I'm sure if it was explained to me in such a way, in a heightened state of awareness, I would be able to grasp and understand to a much deeper level how these things work.
Bit like those South Americans who give lectures in places where everyone has partaken of ayahuasca.
Don't knock it till you tried it.
Whatever happens, I at least hope this thing can get out into the real world and someone gets the true benefit of all this hard work. Perhaps it could be installed in a university, where someone who really understands this stuff could explain it to students.
Some people pay 50 quid to go to a footy match or see a band. I'd pay 50 quid to sit down and be talked through exactly what is going on here.
The MDMA would be a nice touch, but our civilization is not advanced enough yet to see the benefits of things like that. I remember reading that the cpu itself was actually conceived on LSD.
We really haven't learned how to explore our own minds, let alone the universe. Sorry for the OT.
I really hope this can be put to some good use. It really would make a magnificent teaching aid to those of us that want to understand this stuff, but it's not something you can learn by yourself. To have a model like this in front of you and have it stepped through, instruction by instruction kind of thing, would definitely help elucidate the subject. I'd relish something like that.
Please don't let this be lost in a broom cupboard somewhere. Hopefully it finds a suitable and fitting home to expand people's minds and bring them joy.
