Re: Necessary Certainty
"Creator", in the idiom, denotes some kind of entity with will in control.
Does it really?

Yeah, you may run with a more sophisticated crowd. My liveware interfaces are rather parochial.

Or isn't that a reflection of our tendency to anthropomorphize?

Yeah, that too for sure.

I am thoroughly convinced that all Apple software has an attitude problem with me because I'm a retired software engineer

And you'd be right. I don't give a flyin flip what anyone, including myself, says about an unknowing uncaring universe. It just loves playing games with our heads.

This is precisely the reason that, when you drop something in your car, it rolls to the exact opposite place in the universe you can't reach.
