Few days ago, I learnt about these “memory erasing pills” through this mag “WIRED“. This is something so completely amazing that you just got to know about this:
There are these pills that can totally erase any bad memory that you keep, so that you no longer have to get into depression, or even think about it.
The story mentioned in the link is of someone whose life was at the verge of destruction. How some many events had just destroyed her life and had given her so much pain, and then how these pills helped her forget those.
But the question is:
DO WE REALLY NEED TO ERASE OUR BAD MEMORIES?
Whatever happens to us, happens for a reason. When unpleasant things happen, they always leave a lesson.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIFE AND TEACHER IS THAT A TEACHER TEACHES YOU BEFORE TAKING AN EXAM, WHILE LIFE TESTS YOU FIRST AND THEN GIVES YOU A LESSON..
Often harshly learned, the lessons that calamities imprint on our mind, are sure to help us take a good step forward. It tells you to regain yourself after you fall. It helps you learn things that people don’t tell. Teachers don’t teach. Friends don’t warn.
However, I would never like to erase my memories, however painful. I would like to open the cupboard of my thoughts, let the mixed memories flow towards sensation, and then feel them again. because when we think of any event at a later time, it usually brings things you never realized before…
LET me know what you think about this…
