As human beings, we have such short memories. We seem to encode and compact all memories into some kind of mental storage system called long term memory which works sort of well, sometimes depending upon the amount of stress we are under. We use books and other storage systems such as clay tablets, hollerith cards, magnetic tape, hard disk, and solid state to pass information along for each other to use.
We are very smart apes with souls. We keep building systems of government and business to ensnare and enslave ourselves for the supposed benefit it provides, it would be better if we actually worked on moving the species onward while utilizing our base nature for the common good.
Most of us are productive and caring people. We have compassion and other emotions.
List of Human Emotions:
Some emotions are longer lasting. Some emotions are hard to deal with and it’s good that we don’t keep them in short term memory. When we loose a loved one, it’s hard but we do pass through stages of grief:
When we are physically hurt, we experience ‘pain‘. We don’t store that in memory as if we did, we would be disabled any time we recalled it.
As God gave us souls, God gave us a human right to defend us against evil such as rape and murder. In the United States, that right is protected by the 2nd Amendment. Sure, there are lots of us, but it’s important to Him that we do defend ourselves from evil. As of March 11, 2015 in the United States there are 320,480,000 of us.
God Bless America, please.
