This is a test, only a test. If this were a real post, you would be required to read it, or memorize it, or pass a test on it. Since it is a test, you have no obligation whatsoever to read it, nor will there be a test. So given all that, what seems to be inexplicable is that you are reading it anyway. So help make the world more understandable and quit reading this post. I mean now. No, really. It's pointless and time wasting, even to be typing this, and infinitely more so to be reading it. So I'm going now, for a cup of coffee. Hah! I'm back. And, what? You're still here? Still reading? Let me recommend Getting a Real Life 101, an introductory course being taught at my local community college. Sorry. That was sarcastic. Didn't mean it. You have a perfect right to waste your time. If that is even a possibility. There is a school of thought that puts forth that any human activity, even reading vacuous posts on puzzle sites has eternal consequences. Of course, there is no clue as to whether said consequences have existential import. Or any import. But perhaps the pursuit of that question in and of itself has existential import. I for one do not know the answer to that question. Nor do I have any plans to post it as a puzzle. Actually, I'm only making this post to find out whether I can attach a file to a post that is not for example a graphical image. I'm sure there may be philosophical approaches to determining this, but I am an engineer by training and an experimentalist by vocation. So I intend simply to attempt it and see what happens. There is the complication that I am a retired experimentalist, but I'm thinking that that really should not matter. The laws of physics surely did not observe my retirement, and things should be now as they were, prior to. I'm convinced of it, in fact, and I'm somewhat reassured by the likelihood that it is true. Although from another point of view it places the personal events of my life in a somewhat diminished light. It is saddening to a degree that they may have had no effect whatsoever on my world and might have generally gone unnoticed. All of this really doesn't matter however. And because of that, the question arises once more -- why are you reading this? And that answer would seem to open myriad questions about that overall state of affairs in your life. Not to question them, nor to cast even a hint of utter meaninglessness to them, for that would be unkind and presumptuous, neither or which is my purpose in writing the pointless post. Which I am once again getting around to. I'm going to go now, and attempt to attach my file. When I get back I expect you to be gone, and therefore will not write anything more..
