Very short term memory

I continue to play Lumosity pretty regularly. I'm up to the 99.1 percentile for my age group, and of course shooting eventually for 99.9.  I will likely need to stop drinking for a long time and need to exercise much more regularly to do that.  And at the end of the day, I may not be quite smart enough.  Time will tell.

But I wanted to comment that I have noticed playing some games, like Observation Tower and River Ranger, which work your very short term memory, that odd feelings come up, like this is forbidden territory, and it occurs to me that even when emotionally dissociated, you have to teach yourself not to see certain things, to have a microsecond processing faculty turned on all the time to hide unwanted feelings and experiences from your awareness.  Both of these games make me uncomfortable, but obviously that means they are unlocking something that needs unlocking.

For the time being, I'm not seeking them out, but not avoiding them when they come up on my daily set of games.
