Cognitive enhancers

The Economist writes on the advances in drugs that will, somehow, help you remember more things than you now do. Very interesting, but I don’t think I’m interested. The only "cognitgive enhancers" I’m interested in is coffee to help me wake and a warm glass of milk (or a hot toddy) to get me to sleep, but I’m really not interested in having a better memory. There is a good chance that I would remember more than is good for me. Yet, wouldn’t it be good to remember with greater ease lines like these? "Now see that noble and most sovereign reason/Like sweet bells jangled, out of time and harsh." Maybe not.

Dementia, Altzhimers,

My Mom died a couple of months ago. She knew what was going on but could’nt communicate.

Not quite on topic, but closely related.
