I Can Breathe!

No, I can't. What I have is a machine that can breathe for me. And now it's plugged into the correct power supply. There is a sensor in there that must have reacted to when I stopped breathing with too much sensitivity. Some slight over- or under-supply of electricity to the electronics from the makeshift power supply. I wonder if quantum scale happenings were involved?!

It was a deeply disturbing experience, mostly because it was clear that my breathing on my own has, if anything, gotten worse not better. In other words, if I didn't have that machine, maybe I'd be dead by now.

Perhaps you should start a local chapter of Cyborgs 'R Us. I mean, how many people are walking around with 'artificial' parts? Do glasses count? Fillings in your teeth? But certainly artificial joints, pace-makers, prosthetic limbs, hearing aids . . . What else?

Do we count our 'attachment' to the internet?
