I got a new computer today, and I am spending way more time than I’d like changing all of the settings to make the machine work the way I want it to (and the way the previous one did).

I only had the last computer for 2 years, but in that time, I have dozens of little settings calibrated to my liking.

So Imagine it in reverse. How many settings do our bodies accumulate over dozens of years, and how long would it take to detect all those changes and undo them?
