To na pewno nie to, ale przypominam sobie jak w latach 80-tych oglądałam

A może ktoś kojarzy, co to za dzieło?
Nie, ale kojarzę amerykański, gadany film średnich lotów, w którym pewien
nieśmiertelny robił coming out i zwierzał się znajomym, że nie pamięta
swoich najdawniejszych dziejów. Myślę, że krótka ludzka pamięć to aspekt
nieśniertelności, którego większość pisarzy i scenarzystów nie brała pod
uwagę, a przecież je taki ważny.
Nie, żeby zaraz nieśmiertelny, ale:
'Who are you?' he asked.
'I have absolutely no idea,' said Reg brightly, 'much of my memory's
gone completely. I am very old, you see. Startlingly old. Yes, I think
if I were to tell you how old I was it would be fair to say that you
would be startled. Odds are that so would I, because I can't remember.
I've seen an awful lot, you know. Forgotten most of it, thank God.
Trouble is, when you start getting to my age, which, as I think I
mentioned earlier, is a somewhat startling one - did I say that?'
'Yes, you did mention it.'
'Good. I'd forgotten whether I had or not. The thing is that your memory
doesn't actually get any bigger, and a lot of stuff just falls out. So
you see, the major difference between someone of my age and someone of
yours is not how much I know, but how much I've forgotten.
And after a while you even forget what it is you've forgotten, and after
that you even forget that there was something to remember.
