Perfect Forgetfulness: A Powerful Manifestation of God’s Mercy?

My research has recently taken a very interesting turn. And I have ended up in theology.

I am currently advocating for those with poor memory (Aphantasia, SDAM and ASD). I have been advocating for those with poor memory for nearly 15 years.

I have become tired of advocating for a negative trait, so I decided to do a little exercise in marketing and improve my pitch. I came up with the expression "Perfect Forgetfulness". I am claiming that those with Perfect Forgetfulness are the best at solving complex problems.

It is a rather unique term. And in the context that I am using it, I am the first. But it has been used before. It has been used to describe God's Mercy.

As somebody who is very interested in Social Justice and improving the world, I found this extremely interesting. I am coming to suspect/believe that God's Mercy is physically manifesting in a very critical way in people with extremely poor memory.

I am a devout Roman Catholic. I sincerely believe that the age that we live is in serious crisis. I also believe that we are suffering this crisis because we have turned our back on God – wittingly or unwittingly.

I do not think that it is a coincidence that at a time when Perfect Memory is idolized, society is unable to resolve the complex problems facing us. God has given us the solution to resolve these complex problems and that solution is his mercy – Perfect Forgetfulness.

Perfect Memory has become the sole criteria for intelligence and the one trait that guaranties one's success in the world. I believe that if one only develops their memory and does not develop their forgetfulness, they become machines or even worse beasts. They become easy to program. Their lives become instinctual.

I am beginning to suspect that this is the intention of Satan. The one thing that makes us human – the ability to design/model/art/philosophize has been completely denigrated, and we have become his slaves.

I have the trait known as aphantasia, which renders me unable to conjure mental images, yet it does not impair my memory. Despite lacking the ability to visualize, my cognitive capacity rivals that of individuals unaffected by aphantasia. Rather than viewing aphantasia as a dysfunction, I perceive it as a distinctive trait. Having retired from a profession demanding adept multitasking, I maintain that blanket categorizations of negative attributes fail to accommodate individuals with diverse methods of memorization and information processing.
