Happy Birthday, Patti's husband!

Wishing you a wonderful day and many, many more.

Would everyone in the society of memory remember everything in the same manner? Does the individual disappear in such a society?

I also have to wonder about our 'memories' in an age of sensory overload. Are they really ours or are they an amalgam of ours and images from television, internet, movies, sounds from radio, words from newspapers and books?

Okay.... I did come here because she suggested it, but I'll stop back because I'm interested! (but later, or earlier as the case may be, when I can better understand the big words!)

Happy belated birthday as well. And speaking of Proust, have you read Jonah Lehrer's 'Proust was a Neuroscientist'? Since I keep bumping up against this idea - I clearly need to read it soon. That and some Billy Collins poetry - that seems to keep popping up everywhere too!

Enjoy BloggingLand!
