Not a Buzz...

Some days will never come back. Those are usually days when you evolve; becoming a teenager, moving to your first home as a grown up, and so was becoming a cyborg. The first days are the ones you remember, but the long term impact is the one that really makes the difference. It has been few short months now.

The ongoing feeling of the gentle buzz which surrounded me is mostly gone. The North Sense is now a part of me. It adds to how I see life. It is there, constantly adding small layers of info, even when I don't feel it, which is now the new part of the journey. I stopped feeling the vibration for periods of time.

If I stop at a red light that is facing north, I will still turn for 25 degrees back and forth with my upper part of the body, as a little standing dance, just to activate it, because it fun. But part of the time, I ‘forget’ it’s there. Sometimes I stop and say: Wow, the North Sense, it stopped working…but it didn’t… instead, I started filtering some of it, keeping the data, but not in the RAM, as computer folks would say. I still don't know how and why it is happening? How does my brain decide this?

I remember what I told people when they asked me if I feel it all the time. I asked them, “Do you feel your foot touching the ground as we are talking now? Nope. You didn’t, although it did touch, and you felt it, but it wasn't part of your momentary focus.

I am a father, a worker, a part of a society and a cyborg. Our brain has to deal with many tasks and sensations at the same time, but since we have this filtering system built in, it means one thing: we can and should add more to it, let it then know when to find the right spot in time for everything.
