I was so kindly asked by a crazy creative to take up a crazy challenge! I think I’m already crazy even for trying this.. Anyway, the weekend is here and time to give a break for stress, if you aren’t doing it already on a daily basis!
I’m to look around and think about the common object in an uncommon way and also spill my pearls of philosophy about it! (That’s how I understood.. Check here for the original post and you might find a new perspective too.. ;))
The object that found it’s way to dissection for this experiment is my External Hard Disk Drive!
The common view – Storage option with easier portability.
The uncommon view – A very good paper weight! (If you are already planning on killing me, please hold on till you read the rest! 😉 :P)
I’ll be kind enough to add the why too.. Though my drive is reasonably full and actively used (most times) I’ve been using mine as just a paper weight for the past few days. Isn’t it bit heavy on the cost for being paper weight? 😛
Now for the ultimate part of bringing out some philosophy about / on it..
The value of an object is in what it is within? Or how it is intended to be used? Or how it is ultimately used?
Despite containing some of my most valued data, today it is more useful for the mere weight rather than it’s real worth!
So it matters not who you are, what you aspire to be, what is the hurdle you have crossed so far to reach here.. When you let someone use you, they might diminish your value to scrap within a flash of thought. Beware of who you let in to use you!
Phew! It’s bit crazy, alright.. If I survive your death stare, I would be around to reply to your comments and in the meanwhile would be busy preparing a better post for tomorrow! 😉
