50 questions that will free your mind, part 6

(Previous installments can be found here.)

26. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
What a quandary. Basically, you’re asking me to choose between the past and the future. And because I don’t know what the future has in store for me, it’s a gamble. Do I think that I have even better things ahead of me than I’ve already experienced?

…I guess the answer is yes. So, I’d rather lose all my old memories – grudgingly. Damn these conundrums!

27. Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
Why not?

28. Has your greatest fear ever come true?
I’m a functioning, employed member of society with a roof over her head. Does that answer your question?

29. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?
No, and no. (These questions are really on the downward spiral. Still, we’re more than halfway through and I hate to give up on things.)

30. What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?
I really can’t think of any specific ones. And that saddens me.

    Haha, I’ve only done questions 1-15, so I hope they don’t start getting awful!! 🙁 They were so good in the beginning.

    Apparently, between questions 26 and 30, your wish came true!

    On the “Know the truth” question, I think you do have to challenge it to know it. Otherwise you don’t really know it, just know of it? If that makes any sense. I know of the suffering of third world countries but have never experienced it, so do I really know or just see shadows of it. Can definitely be connected to allegory of cave type nonsense.
