If you could spend one year in perfect happiness but afterward remember nothing of the experience, would you do so? If not, why not?
My first answer would be no. Why would you spend a year in perfect happiness only to forget it ever happened? That seems rather counter intuitive to me. It’s the same thing with sorrow and struggle. Sure, the feeling sucks while it’s happening but it only makes you appreciate the good things. That’s the good thing about life: there are good things and bad things but it all makes for an interesting life, wouldn’t you say?
