I like to talk. And write poetry. I paint a little too.

An email correspondence recently reminded me of something I read somewhere:

Recent research had shown that memory is a tool, not a record-keeping system:
the brain changes memories to make us act more efficiently; we apply the ever-changing incident we recall to new situations -- which is why our memory is unreliable, surprisingly so.

And thus it is apparently a fallacy that it is all stored in there, videotaped by the brain.

I kinda believe that.

But the feelings, the impressionistic remnants of our experiences still symbolize what happened, I think.

Our memories are a poetic view of the past, as well as a learning tool to make us into a mean, lean survival machine.

I have one -- it looks good :)

Make Poverty History - White Band

The New York Times -- Literary Map of Manhattan!

Looking to see if the references my William Gibson Web Forum put in are there-- meanwhile enjoy!
