exploding dogs

Tell me: What is memory? And why do we lose it? And what is the evolutionary advantage to having a faulty memory, as we all have? Can't we just pull up what we've stored in our brains, 'cause it's there, we just can't retrieve it.
Today at work I made the kids write childrens books with morals to them. We read a fantastic story by Sam Brown called "Amazing Rain," which is illustrated by the most expressive stick figures I've ever seen. Check out his website,
Don't worry, there really aren't any exploding dogs.

I think losing memory can actually be quite a blessing. There are certainly things in my life that I would like to forget. Perhaps there is an evolutionary advantage in that certain things forgotten mean less stress on the individual.
