Look at post #2.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

"Your girl" implies his girlfriend rather than his daughter.

### Re: Love at first sight

'Your girl' is a phrase expanding to 'the girl you own'.
You do not own your girlfriend, because she normally has a different individuality and genetics.

### Re: Love at first sight

Possibly true, I am not a big fan of modern genetics. But the phrase "your girl" used in the west means girlfriend.

Do you believe in a concept called Love at first sight?

### Re: Love at first sight

What about a scenario where you do not remember the first sight or your first sight timestamp nor the first occurence of love nor its timestamp but only a bunch of memories scattered unevenly in time?

Timestamps are for machines. I remember vividly the first time it happens, the image is in there forever.

### Re: Love at first sight

But, Christopher remembered them. He also had a smell track just like a video and a audio track in his memory. In case he fell in love, he would be able to remember how the victim smelt like.

I am better than that guy 'cause I've a touch track too. Normally, I cannot access it. But, random data from that track flows into my mind during dreams.

Even better is to have some space in your disk to save the gait analysis. I've done it and I can access that part of my memory anytime but I haven't got a chance to confirm it although I did some lookups based on it.

### Re: Love at first sight

Using gait analysis, you can recognise your love among thousands of other people just looking at the way he/she walks.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gait_analysis

and yeah, ofcourse you should allocate some memory for the analytical dump of the way she posts

### Re: Love at first sight

It does not help you find your true love. It helps you identify your true love provided you have already found him or her through some miraculous event, unexplained by logic, sometime before.

Technology is neutral. It is upto you whether you use it to plan a love that will last forever or an assasination

The difference is that you'll do that gait analysis when you're in love automatically without needing to put conscious effort on it.

That is not true. Much of technology is harmful to us and to the environment.

Your true love? Do you really think some computer analysis can do that?
