The Story of H.M.: The Amnesiac Who Profoundly Changed the Way We Think About Memory
…All the while H.M. got older, at least physically. Mentally, he remained stuck in the 1940s. He remembered not a single birthday or funeral after that time; the Cold War and sexual revolution never registered; new words such as granola and Jacuzzi remained forever undefined. Worse, a vague sense of uneasiness often bubbled up inside him, and he could never quite shake it. The feeling, Milner reported, was “like that fraction of a second in the morning, when you are in a strange hotel room, before it all falls in[ to] place.” Only for H.M. it never did.
The prophet Muhammed ﷺ said:
"Oh Allaah! Keep me alive as long as life is better for me, and let me die if death is better for me."
People who use a lack of education to justify subjecting poor people to poverty are fucking revolting. They’ve invented a system wherein poor people cannot obtain a quality education because they are poor and then they use that lack of education to justify their continued poverty. It’s self-sustaining, vile, oppressive, and a fundamental tenet of modern American conservativism.
