The Forgetful Mind

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
When the brain engages a task, electro/chemical energy is generated at the source. When the task becomes so complex that too much energy is required, we are at risk of overheating the supply. In this situation, endorphins intervene to sedate the source, effectively ending the task. When endorphins don’t break the connection to the emotional motivation quickly enough we experience a seizure which again, effectively ends the endeavour. Whatever the solution, the involvement of endorphins in either case ensures that we forget these events, over and over again.
