Second WAI from TTT

Question

Guest

Together yet separate,

I never can retire;

For though I may stop working,

I am reborn by fire.

Conceived by one not dumb,

And born by killing another,

I am perfected by the noise,

Though I never had a mother.

You might use intelligence,

While others ask a doctor.

To solve this one, you may need to ask questions;

I will be your proctor.

Could it be solder?

No, it couldn't, but good guess! And welcome!

I'm not sure if someone already said this (I got tired of reading like halfway through the posts)

Is it a microprocessor?

Someone has already mentioned that.

SOUNDBLASTER VGA CARD

Not really looking for something brand-specific, nor any component.

16 pages is forever long and i got sick of reading posts at like page 8 so can we get a recap of what has been close and what youve given as hints. then maybe some of the newcomers can reprocess all the information and come up with the answer. Thanks!

I will be your proctor.

Hint 1:

I was born of necessity,

Placed against the glass;

Look into my future,

You will only see my past.

Hint 2:

I can be seen nearly everywhere,

From socks, to dips, to sips, son.

My history is wide and varied,

But one path is from the light offspring who created wisdom.

Close: just about anything related to technology, though the closest guess was "microprocessor".

is the "i never had a mother" line used just for rhyming purposes, or does it have any significance? perhaps contrasting with having a "father" or being "born" in some unnatural way...??

haha and a quick wrong guess related to docta's first guess and your saying close but too old fashioned...

light saber

No.

Man, can't get the spoiler box to work.

Again, my guess . . .

a Packet.

No.

The mother line has significance in that no women were directly involved (or at least not mentioned as such) with the "birth".

And no.

an operating system such as windows or Dos?

No.

an address bar (click for future sites to see past history?)

would be the browsing history for Mozilla Fire Fox?

No and no.

Is it time to lay this to rest? I am looking for a specific phrase (yes, more than one word).

Just a thought of a possible clue...

If no women were involved in the "birth" then does that mean that it was invented by a guy?

Weld, welder, etc. Or sauter, glass blowing. The melding of materials through manufacturing techniques, etc.

Am I on the right track?

is it light?

together yet separate - light and dark

light can never retire, always exists somewhere

may stop working as in electrical light but always reborn by fire

conceived by God? thus no mother

born by killing dark?

perfected by noise could mean perfected by civilization or simply that there is more noise in daytime

might use intelligence, light is so often used as a metaphore for reason

some need eye doctor? to better see?

not sure its your answer but works.

A phoenix on its deathbed?

No.

a guess

is it a laptop battery?

No.

:huh:
A gate? AND, NAND, OR, NOR...?

No.

GPS
movie theatre

1. Yes, it has something to do with that.

2. Perhaps it has something to do with that as well.

Just a thought of a possible clue...

Aha! Another clue demystified, Watson!

life support machine?

More than probably wrong, though it is used in that.

sorry so many answers lol

No, but close; no, but close; no.

Weld, welder, etc. Or sauter, glass blowing. The melding of materials through manufacturing techniques, etc.

Am I on the right track?

Aha!

Does "Aha!" mean I got it right, on the right track, or just "Aha" and nothing more?
