  1. Template

    Templates are a feature of the C++ programming language that allow functions and classes to operate with generic types. This allows a function or class to work on many different data types without being rewritten for each one. This is effectively a Turing-complete language. Templates are of great utility to programmers in C++, especially when combined with multiple inheritance and operator overloading. The C++ Standard Library provides many useful functions within a framework of connected templates. Major inspirations for C++ templates were the parametrized modules provided by CLU and the generics provided by Ada.

    1. Justice is two-faced. 2. Love is the maturity of the soul. And people rarely ripen for true love, they are hampered by infantilism. Because of this, divorces occur. People show love but think about something else. A double game in which there is a struggle with one's own egoism. And egoism is the infantilism of the ego.

The subconsciousness crawls out at times and controls consciousness. We do what we want to do subconsciously. And we act unconsciously. And the subconscious is an audio tape of memory. We subconsciously remember what we knew in past lives and repeat some things in this one. Memory tape records everything we thought and what we think about. Also with videotape that periodically displays deja vu. Memory controls our subconscious actions and can tell us what we should say in this case. This tape contains all our life experiences of all our lives. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
