How Your Soul is Like a Hard Drive


"Your brain is dead."

Jon's words pierced.  In our office, Jon Davis, Manager of Technical Services, often uses medical metaphors to explain computer problems to us.  I find those parallels extremely helpful.  This week, my PC's hard drive crashedand in one instant, my daily partner in productivity couldn't remember its identity, perform tasks, or recall the last two years we'd spent together.

Its brain was dead.  I was mortified.

After a day of assembling, activating, and programming the new hard drive, Jon had my machine up and running again.  All was well.

But rebellion struck ...
