Must be thinking more, here of late......

Perhaps, as Borges concludes in his story, it is forgetting, not remembering, that is the essence of what makes us human.  To make sense of the world, we must filter it.  "To think," Borges writes, "is to forget."

-Joshua Foer,  Moonwalking With Einstein:  The Art and Science of Remembering Everything
