It's not far-fetched to say that losing my memory is probably one of my greatest fears. But what would happen if only select memories from my mind became erased? In "The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", staring Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet (arguably Carrey's best performance) a couple undergoes a voluntary procedure to erase each other from recollection. In theory, the idea of terminating bitter memories in one's mind sounds fantastic; but the power to control retrograde amnesia-the loss of memories from our past-comes with great responsibility. As the movie goes, while the portions of their memories are being erased, both Carrey and Winslet begin to realize how much they don't want to forget each other: the irony of the movie is that there is no eternal sunshine from a spotless mind, rather the sunshine from each mind comes from the memories in them. I understand that every memory in a person's life is not all milk and honey, but experiences and coinciding memories exist for a reason! The memories we hold help shape who we are, for better or worse, and nothing on Earth could convince me to delete a single memory from my mind. Amnesia, Alzheimer's, and all seven sins of memory are demons each person should fight off for the rest of his or her life. I highly recommend "The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", but I equally discourage the attempt to control memory loss.
