The Adventurer’s Origin (2)

Layers upon layers of memories, some of which stay at the top resembling well-preserved color slides, others becoming murky while sinking into the dust at the bottom.

Jorge Luis Borges has written much on that subject, among other things a short-story about a young man who could not forget anything and who therefore was ‘dazzled’ by the ever-present clarity of the past.
