FORGETFULNESS: COPING WITH AGING AND LOSING YOUR MEMORY

“It grows with age and decline with age.”


THE MIND MACHINE

Our brains have evolved into an amazing organ for performing all sorts of task. It is the central place of our human existence. And with time we learn the world around us, and if used appropriately, we can manipulate the world around us as well. As we grow, we are sponges, starting from a young age. It’s the reason why parents place their children in so many different activities because we learn so much when we are young. The reason being because life is still new, and everything peaks our interest. Once we reach adulthood, learning takes on a whole new meaning and challenge. But can also be quite interesting if you are willing and able to put yourself in the know.

DIMINISHING OVER TIME

As your brain grows over time, there comes a point where the brain starts to diminish over time as well. And a lot our learning stops around the age of 25 to 30 years of age. Why, well it’s because you are no longer in school. Once the formal academic education stops, we generally stop as well. No one is telling us when to turn in assignments, unless it’s our jobs. Anything else that we are to learn independently, we halt. School is so mundane to us because it does not seem as engaging as life to us. Yet, the more you learn, the more you have no choice but to engage. Because your mind starts to open up to so many new opportunities.

MAINTAIN WHAT OTHERS LOSE

In order to not lose what others lose over time, you have to be constantly learning. And to me, that is something that has always kept me going is learning new information. It doesn’t have to pertain to anything I am remotely interesting in, but I know. Why should you do so, it increases your base. Your base when needing to reference something in a conversation, or you also want to become more traversed for yourself. And yes, as time treks on you will lose a lot of memory no matter how much you learn.

DECLINE OF THE MIND

Once you hit a certain point in life, very few people can maintain their sharp minds. You start to become forgetful going into your elderly years. You’re not as smart as you used to be, fast as you used to be. One reason is because the body is wearing down, and all the information up until this point in your life will have been replaced with something more evolved. Yet, what will happen is you will become a base for younger generations. What they read about you experienced. And your stock will still remain strong so long as you continue to want to stay in the know, even with a diminishing mind.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
