Message by Jerry Russell with an introduction by Rev. Alicia Forsey, Ph.D., recorded Sunday, 11 March 2012, titled "Memory and Forgetting." The Science of how our brains work is a field familiar to UUCE member Jerry Russell. This morning he will share some of his research. Fascinating discoveries! If we did not remember what we experience, where would we find meaning? If we remembered everything, would we be able to function, or would we be completely overwhelmed? Do we forget some things in order to survive? Rumi said that he had been forgetful for sixty years, but not for a second has this flowing toward me stopped or slowed.
