Changing our software

The more we understand how to use the software, the more value we get out of our computers and phones.  Fortunately, we don’t need to know the underlying code, our desktop does just fine.  Everything technological is happening behind the desktop.  In a certain context, we view our everyday life as our ‘desktop’.  We know little of the place where our thoughts, emotions, and actions come from.  We know it has something to do with our brain and what is happening in our unconscious, but most of us know little more than that.  And we don’t need to know more than that.  But if we did, would it make a difference?  When it comes to fixing a computer or phone, you need to know what’s behind the “desktop”.  I wonder if the same holds true for us.  Would we be able to change and ‘fix’ ourselves quicker and more efficiently is we could look behind our desktop?  Is knowing who we are and why we do what we do valuable information for change?
