    I agree with him, as the old adage goes, "ignorance is bliss", if we forget some unhappy stuff, we feel better.

    It'd be better if we were like computers, we can check our "hard drives" fer unwanted data, then we right-click on the data and press the delete button. Viola! It never existed!

    Yeah, I thought it was a nice essay because it focuses on a central issue that is relevant to all humans.
