I am wondering about my memory. Why. . . I forgot. . . just kidding, it is not quite that bad, yet. I have no trouble remembering things from 65 years ago, it is my short term memory that seems to be not as good as it used to be, that is, if I remember correctly. So then I wondered just how do we remember things?
I keep telling everyone that my mind is like a computer hard-drive, because it only has so much space and if I put more into it, something has to get erased. Actually, I think the human brain is capable of much more than we think if only we knew how to use it to its fullest.
Another thing I wonder about is if what we remember is actually accurate? I read somewhere that every time we recall a memory, we actually rewrite it in our minds and that "rewrite" isn't always exactly the same as the original. I always thought that if I kept recalling something that it would make me remember it longer. And I think it does, but maybe it does change it ever so slightly I don't realize. But, if I rewrite it a little different each time, how the heck would I know it isn't accurate each time I remember it. I am starting to get dizzy, it isn't good for us old guys to think real hard. Don't want to rupture brain cells, what is left of them. So, you all just have yourselves a great day today, you hear?
