Amnesia - The Ultimate Supreme Identity Crisis
In the movie Bourne Trilogy (Bourne Identity, Bourne Supremacy and Bourne Ultimatum) Jason Bourne (acted by Matt Damon) is an amnesic spy who speaks many international language including German, Italian and Russian. A pronounication guide to numbers in international Language is attached at the bottom of blogsite http://danielepl.blogspot.com. Jason Bourne lost his memory and goes in search of his identity across Europe and in the process discovered that he was a former assasin from the CIA. Amnesia, the loss of memory, is increasingly prevalent in today''s highly stressed society. It can range from just a sudden lost of meomory to to a more severe case when one just may not remember the past. Amnesia can affects the aged as well as the young such as Jason Bourne.
On the Internet there are many occasion when one may not remember the Login ID or password. This is especially true when the Login ID or password has not been entered for a few days. During meeting we may forget the other person''s name even though they look familiar especially in todays''s globalised society where there are many foreigners living overseas. This can be embarassing as we struggle with their name while shaking hands. At home we may forget where we put our household things such as as a simple pen or even the remote control. During travel there are occasion when we forget where we are after waking up from the hotel bed in a foreign country.
There may not be a cure for amnesia but here are some suggestion i could share. It is useful to maintain records of daily activities and future appointments on a diary or in the latest PDA or smart phone. Acquaintance should be updated in the address book in the mobile phone or PDA. Staying healthy and fit by adopting a sporty lifestyle can help to counter stress and improve memory. Healthy activities include aerobic or cardio-vascular exercise such as jogging and swimming and muscular exercise such as Yoga. Exercise may be useful to delay the aging process and improve one''s memory.
To ignore amnesia and the consequence my be fatal which is what happen to Jason Bourne. It may be good to recognise amnesia and take positive action including adopting a healthy active lifestyle. Just do not forget to just do it.
