At some point of logic, the only logical thing to do is dance.
Whoever those OS/coder guys who kicked you out were still daydreamed however much logical they were. It is normal to daydream completely invented characters, I even have more than one. But it's really NUTZ to daydream about an ob<x>ject being alive and to be in love with it.
The coders were right. You are wrong.
It's illogical to take anything too far even if that thing be logic. They're pretty intelligent, they just know when
to chill and forget all this logical bullshit. Snootiness of this order wont work even if you go and live with some imagined race of beings
who are far more intelligent than us. (I wish I could explain why this is succintly. I cant)
There's nothing wrong in daydreaming. I'm no psychiatrist but being in love with your calculator must signify some sorta highbrow Freudian
wish fulfilment. If you're intelligent you must also know how to use your reptilian brain to it's full potential. There's a payment for
being excessively logical: if you're in a really, really tight spot you'll just be the opposite (=completely raving nutz).
Dont feel bad about your daydreams, even the most logical beings in the ******* world daydream the craziest of things. Anyways the ability
to conjure up whole universes about an inanimate object is proof of how creative you are.
Mathematicians daydream too.
Not for 99.99% of ♥them. 99.99% mathematicians/scientists are just a little bit more intelligent than normal (hellk, most of them arent even intelligent enough to daydream). What☻ the <sarcasm>mortals</sarcasm> do is just mostly play along with force of habit and existing patterns as far as their job is concarned.
You cant always extend what is true for you only, to what is true for everybuddy.
What I meant was that you're way more intelligent than nearly everyone in this world. So the way you think isnt the way nearly anyone else thinks, mathematicians included.
Granted you're surrounded by stupid people. But is there *any*♥ way out of it?
To continue your analogy...the best hardware you can put your i7 with would be only slightly better than the present♥ hardware.
