Reincarnation music

I just had to reboot my Mac (of course, this is something you never have to do because Macs Never Crash), and was greeted by the "Derrrrrrngg" sound of Mac revival.

Sooner or later, it will become possible to freeze people, for reawakening at some future date. I would like to see a data repository where I can store information on the music I would like when I am re-booted in 2153, and I think I will choose the Mac-reboot sound. I would also like to be able to decide, in advance, whether I want any of my old thought processes restarted and memories recovered.

       Ah, but which? The latest ones apparently don’t make a sound (don’t know anyone with one of those – I don’t think anyone bought those).

       Maybe silence would be the most appropriate. You don't want to attract the Morlocks.

       You'd have to choose between intelligence or that wild naivety and gay abandon that ignorance gives.

       I don't think I've ever been the victim of gay abandon.
