i can not spell anymore

I remember my teachers reciting us words and their spellings during primary school. Till about three years back I had a good hold of spellings. Then came reports and that had to be typed on a laptop.
The contemporary world makes us many provisions. A few improve our existence (maybe) and some depreciate it. The spell-checker is one such fad.

The spell-checker is a grand application, it keeps me from committing horrendous and careless inaccuracies but it has made my spelling so much frail.

I was scripting a matter telling someone that something was for their convenience. I couldn't spell convenience!

It's not that convenience is an overly straightforward word. My guess, if you asked 10 people how to spell it, or other words like conscience, a momentous number would either err or wouldn't even attempt. That's not the point. The point is I should have known how to spell it but the spell checker has just made my spelling scrawny.

What did I do? I saw the red underline below what was the obviously misspelled and right-clicked to get a list of suggestions on the proper spelling. Sure enough, there in the list was the proper spelling.

Whenever you don't use something, you slowly lose it. The little finger on the toes for instance. The appendix. The tail.
I use my knowledge of spelling less and less, I just let the computer do it.
Conceivably sometimes too convenient is simply too convenient.
..now this is a really wierd statement..or is it weird?

cognitive misers


Believing in others' opinions rather than wisdom to take quick decisions. Onslaught of information and scarce time in our frantic paced lives encourages us to elevate the value of mental shortcuts in order to reduce the complex world  to something more manageable.

a thought is forever

It is pure energy. All the thoughts we have right now, or might have had earlier, or would have in time to come are creative. Energy that a thought has never dies. The thought energy leaves our "self" and moves out to the universe and extends forever.

A thought is forever.

dying swans with twisted wings

what we see is not real.. its an interpretation dependent upon influential extraneous determinants.
people lose their souls to this brave new world like dying swans with twisted wings
