Look at it this way, YOU are a computer, made up of software and hardware.

Hardware: Flesh, blood, brains, bone, organs, etc. The physicality of a human. That which interacts with the world.

Software: Conciouseness, sentience, awareness, a sense of "I am", memories, intellect, etc. The intangible, central stuff that makes the physical stuff go. The stuff that defines you. YOU are the software of yourbody.

And just like computer software being capable of transferring between hardware units, so too can human software.

Eywa transferred OS Jake from a shriveled, weak hardware unit, to a tall, strong hardware unit. Everything that made OS Jake, OS Jake is still there, it's just running on a new machine now.

The Dreamer's Manifesto

Mike Malloy, a voice of reason in a world gone mad.

"You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling." - Inception

"Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy **** we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off." - Tyler Durden
