    Okay, Let's get some things out of the way first. intellect is a collection of bits of knowledge, either you hold on to them or file them away somewhere but the information never really leaves you entirely Or does it.

    For a really long time, I've sought out the most advanced forms of education I can possibly encounter all in an effort to push myself as far as I could go, I may make it sound easy, But I've put myself through incredible stresses to attain comprehension of some of these subjects.

    I noticed over Time, I've developed nervous ticks, My OCD, has become almost debilitatingly severe on its own,

    I've developed a new habit now, I don't know what to make of it, At all Times, I like to keep a Fully functional Operating system on a USB flash drive, I can do this with Linux or Windows, But, I keep one in my Wallet, It has Archived personal information in it, I have a pair of rather expensive raybans which come apart to in fact to be a USB drive, I have Windows 10 on it. Now, I am getting a different Smartwatch, This one has 2 gigs of rom a Quad core 1 GHz processor and 16 gigs internal memory on it. I'm going to put Several Pc repair tools on it and a live bootable version of Redhat Linux on it.

    My thing is, Yeah, I have need of those kinds of files. But I've developed this need to keep them on my person, So much so I bought an overly expensive Watch just to cover for all the other Dorky solutions I've come up with to carry this Data with me.

    My question is, Why is that? Is this a mental illness? Why do I feel Like I'm not dressed fully unless I have my USB's With os's on them, I mean, they are Handy, I can boot them in almost any device with a USB slot.

    Still, I make the distinction that this is not Natural, And somewhat really Geeky and Nerdy. I worry if it's worse then that, I worry if my Cheese has finally slid right off my cracker sometimes.

    Could you have some kind of suppressed knowledge of an impending event? I guess in a way you're carrying a part of your world which can be restored, kinda like a data Swiss Army knife.

    I thought this was a cool idea.

    That's actually a Really nice knife, I'm gonna get one of those.

    The closest thing I can relate the feeling too is, If you look online right now, And you see files you like, You had better grab and save them, in six months to a year, Those files will most likely be gone. It seems like the "Net Life" For files and things aren't terribly long. It's like a compulsion, I want to save everything that I find even remotely useful.

    I feel like, If I don't grab it, Those things will be gone someday, And eventually, We will all be paying for things we take for granted today. Do you like Free Music? Better grab it and save it, Because as soon as they figure out a way to prevent people from sharing it freely, Those days will be gone, You like roms and Emulators? Better save those while you can, They have been made illegal and you won't be seeing them in the near future.

    It's like this "Entity" or presence has taken over the net, Eventually, everything is going to cost money to use. Nothing will be free anymore. It's like I want to save a lifetime's worth of Media and entertainment before this happens.

    Okay, that makes sense. You're archiving things you feel will no long be available. It would be akin to saving endangered species.
