If you…

It is said: “If you love someone, you let them go”. Well, this is too easy.

Here comes the hardest one: by negating the phrase, this means you should stick to those you don’t love?

Note: This is not an iterative dilema of my life, just a conceptual question.

M-am născut om şi am crescut robot. În prezent mă străduiesc să ajung în punctul din care am plecat. N-am reuşit în totalitate, însă cred că sunt pe drumul cel bun.

Când îmi explorez latura non-robotică, îmi place: să citesc şi să scriu, să croşetez şi să fac diverse obiecte “de mână”, să urc pe munte şi să înot în mare, să joc jocuri de societate.
Nu am uitat nici de micii mei prieteni cu blană, pisicile. Îmi place să petrec timp în compania lor, fapt pentru care umila-mi gospodărie este disputată de Kirb, Miarys şi Mioja.

    I'm sorry.

    I'm way too close to programming to allow that negation to work.

    But let's have this experiment:

    If you wholly negate that phrase, semantics included, you get that you should not think about keeping the ones you don't really love close. I suppose it just happens 🙂

    So, when negated, it's no longer a suggestion or command, but an assessment.

    Meaning: you might tend to keep working on the 'wrong' relationship all your life.

    Always be careful when using a ! ( logical not )

    Horia, that's pretty much what I was thinking about, but you said it better than I did (that "should" from my negation is really messing the meaning). 🙂
