  1. Continuation

    In computer science and computer programming, a continuation is an abstract representation of the control state of a computer program. A continuation reifies the program control state, i.e. the continuation is a data structure that represents the computational process at a given point in the process' execution; the created data structure can be accessed by the programming language, instead of being hidden in the runtime environment. Continuations are useful for encoding other control mechanisms in programming languages such as exceptions, generators, coroutines, and so on. The "current continuation" or "continuation of the computation step" is the continuation that, from the perspective of running code, would be derived from the current point in a program's execution. The term continuations can also be used to refer to first-class continuations, which are constructs that give a programming language the ability to save the execution state at any point and return to that point at a later point in the program.

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Immortality is defined as the indefinite continuation of a person's existence even after death. In other words, it is a never-ending existence, regardless of whether or not the body dies. I mean, it is the state of being able to live perpetually. That is to say, an immortal being is anyone who has achieved immortality (enduring fame). And consequently, he or she will never be forgotten. Because, he or she deserves to be remembered and celebrated globally or perpetually. Now listen up, many mortals like you have already achieved immortality through their passions, generosities, magnanimities, sagacities, professions, careers and through their God-given resources, gifts, talents, inventions, discoveries, creativities, originalities, ingenuities, published books, quotes, thoughts, insights, motivations, inspirations and other publications. For instance, all writers or authors right here or out there have already achieved immortality via their published books, quotes, insights, ideas, motivations, inspirations and via other written works or publications. In fact, that's why they (authors or writers) will surely be remembered and celebrated globally or perpetually throughout the posterity ahead (all future generations). Yes! because the writers or authors published books, quotes, insights, ideas, motivations, inspirations and other written works or publications will surely be read, shared, assimilated, adopted, utilized, celebrated or criticized globally and perpetually by the posterity ahead (all future generations ahead). Anyway, that connotes and infers, if you (personally) really long to be remembered or celebrated globally and perpetually after your demise, then you should strive to achieve immortality now that you are still alive either through your passion, profession, career, generosity or through your God-given sagacity, knowledge, gift, talent, resources, thoughts, insights, ideas or stuffs like that. Better still, endeavour to write and publish something worth reading or endeavour to succeed in doing things that are worth writing. All I'm saying is that you too can make a difference and you can equally succeed in leaving a positive legacy behind for the posterity ahead. Believe you me, you can do just that. Note: I (personally) do believe in you. So come on, dare to believe in your own self. ~Emeasoba George

  5. Charles Krauthammer:
