How the CPU functions in a computer


The brain of your box.

The CPU has been tasked with the responsibility of issuing instructions to the other parts of the computer.

Why you begin with the history of the word and cognitive synonyms?

The birth place of words are in peoples minds. They become the blocks we use to build what we see, hear, taste, touch and smell (our senses). When you read you are condensing your senses into a chain of links from a set of symbols. These visible symbols are the anchors you chunk into your vocabulary to name your thoughts and beliefs.

The purpose of reading a list of the history of a word is to build your relationship as the word grew-up in time. The family origins of a word connects the anchor to the chain of how the words story sprouted in someones mind.

The cognitive synonyms (synset for short) are the present sprouted offspring of the word. They provide you with fresh mental anchors to the chain of the words story.

Read the groups of words to see their birth.

Connect with the anchors to the story of the words to see how they’ve grown.

Basic Knowledge

The central processing unit, aka microprocessor, carries out the instructions of a computer program by performing the basic arithmetical, logical, and input/output operations of the system.
Hard Drive:
A physical device in the computer used to store programs or data on a temporary or permanent basis.
Random Access Memory allows stored data to be accessed in any random order.


The workflow of a program when initiated:

  1. The program inititated is transferred from the Hard Drive to RAM.
  2. The CPU loads the program from RAM.
  3. The data that was loaded in the CPU is processed.
  4. What occurs in the final step depends on the program that was loaded.
    • example: running a word document, using software to edit pictures or a movie.
