Every man's memory is his private literature (Aldous Huxley)

Just got home after havin' watched one of the most interesting and moving documentaries ever, brought on loads of existential thoughts, the human condition blah blah. "Unknown white male", is the true story of 37 year old Douglas Bruce who for no apparent reason lost his entire memory one day (that is his "episodic" and "semantic" memory, not so much his "procedural"...from what I figured at least). Loved the way it was filmed, and directed by Rupert Murray. I am really curious to hear and watch how Douglas feels, reacts when he regains his memory one day (95% chance he does).
