PKMzeta Inhibitors


Mommy pointed out an article in Wired Magazine regarding PKMzeta inhibitors...or 'the forgetting pill'. This theoretical pill would target areas of the brain containing deep-rooted memories and by blocking the protein synthesis, would effective erase those memories. At first, this sounds appealing. Daddy (and Mommy) could erase those horrific images we would prefer to never have experienced, but upon deeper consideration, those images and memories, no matter how terrible, are now a part of the fabric of our being. Those memories are precious in their own right in that they are something no one else shares, and no one else can ever understand in the same way Daddy and Mommy do. To erase them would be to erase a part of you and a part of us, and Daddy would only take that pill if it meant you were alive again, because if the memories associated with your death were erased, the impact of your life would be lessened in too many unacceptable ways. In short, the pain is worth it if for only to keep you present and real in our lives.

I love you!

  1. (Revelation 21:3-5) 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” 5 And the One seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new.” Also, he says: “Write, because these words are faithful and true.”
    (Isaiah 65:17, 18) . . .“For here I am creating new heavens and a new earth; and the former things will not be called to mind, neither will they come up into the heart. 18 But exult, YOU people, and be joyful forever in what I am creating.. . .
