Jorge Luis Borges Funes, His Memory

Satisfactory Essays
Jorge Luis Borges’ “Funes, His Memory,” is a narrative about Funes, a man with an incredible ability to remember everything so clear and perfect as though he is seeing it at the exact moment. Funes is stuck in his memory and cannot live life freely because he is unable to filter out unimportant memories. All that his memory is able to do is intake scenes but lacks the ability to recycle out unnecessary details. In this piece, we are able to comprehend that in order to be aware, we need to have balance and limit between consciousness and memory. If we do not have a limit between these we are unable to live in reality.
