Why do we forget?~

If we were asked to recall the events of the last 5 minutes, we can play them back in our minds where they are recorded almost perfectly. Then if we were asked that same question a year later, all details become blurry and most of the story is lost. Why is that? Why do memories fade? Is it by design? Or did something go wrong along our line of evolution?

  1. Good question. Why can I sing all the songs from the 70’s and 80’s but can’t recall a friends name when I’m trying to introduce her to someone. Hmmm I can also say the Preamble to the Constitution and sing quite a few School House Rock songs about grammar and how a bill becomes a law.
