The Curse of Memory: On The Wisdom of Forgetfulness
Charles Chu

“Each person is at each moment capable of remembering all that has ever happened to him and of perceiving everything that is happening everywhere in the universe. The function of the brain and nervous system is to protect us from being overwhelmed and confused by this mass of largely useless and irrelevant knowledge, by shutting out most of what we should otherwise perceive or remember at any moment, and leaving only that very small and special selection which is likely to be practically useful. According to such a theory, each one of us is potentially Mind at Large.” from The Doors of Perception by Huxley.

If the brain truly is a filter, after death and the dissolution of the filter, are the Akaschic records available to us and if so, how are the records perceived beyond the fragmentary nature of dreams?

Besides sparking my imagination, Chu’s article was somehow comforting; suggesting permission to let go of accumulating knowledge.
