But what about all the great minds that have this gift?
Do they not have an advantage over the non photographic memory people?
Im not buying the whole we have Google now so we don't need memory.
It doesn't make any sense to get rid of a Ferrari and trade it in for a pinto.
Thanks for the reply!

But seriously. I think its because we have lost the ability to stay focused over the years. Because of all the electronics used in a negative way. Like T.V. or some types of music. Obviously it affects our Brain and nervous system. You don't need any links or scientific proof for that. It shows everywhere you go. Another thing that dumbs us down is drugs. Its medically proven that Heroine, Weed, and Meth affect the brain. It makes people who they are.
We technologically advanced through the midst 20th century. But we didn't take precautions, and realize what we were actually doing. Hopefully we can turn around, otherwise, it can lead to the destruction of the planet.
And of course weed and meth and heroine affect the brain. That's the freaking point. People don't stick needles in their arm because it feels good to have a steel tube in their arm.
