Summer Readings 5

"Remembering and forgetting are part of the same mental process. To write down one detail of an event is to not write down another (unless you keep writing forever). To remember one thing is to let another slip from remembrance (unless you keep recalling forever). There is ethical as well as violent forgetting. We can't hold onto everything we've known so far. So the question is no whether we forget but what, or whom, we forget - not whether our diets change, but how." Jonathon Safran Foer, "Eating Animals" (p. 194)

"Ecological Intelligence" by Daniel Goleman
