Do you ever wonder if there is a limit to everyone's personal ability to learn? Do you think there is some arbitrary cut off point that happens that varies from person to person? Perhaps at some point your brain will be like, "No way, bro, that's it, the fount of knowledge is full!" and that will be it. You will never be more knowledgeable or learned than you are at that point.
Or do you wonder if maybe there is a price to pay for new knowledge? Like maybe my learning about DNA and epigenetics comes at the cost of my forgetting the name of my elementary school and what ingredients go into a PB&J sandwich?
Maybe one day I'll be driving home from work and forget where I live and it will all be because I just learned how to multiply fractions that day. It boggles the mind!
The Fine Print: I went to E.G. Shaw Elementary School and peanut butter and jelly go into a PB&J and for the love of everything holy do not add butter! What kind of freak does that?! Card stuff from Club Scrap "Random Doorways" to fit my random musings.
