hello and greetings.. my name for this forum is deorro 1. It has no important significance except the fact that I can still 'think' enough to come up with a random name in a random 'thought' processed sort of way... A little while ago, maybe in the first part of 2017, or later part of 2016, before the great New Year's Celebration was to begin, I remember many of the 'folk' around here beginning to be 'unable' to think coherently.. Their words were 'slur-red' and their 'concepts spoken', unsensical. So I thought... are we losing the ability to 'think' with imagination? Are we beginning to 'lose' our mental facilities to 'form new' ideas and connect 'ideas with other ideas' in a coherent, logical way? in other words, could we, if desired, randomly think of a 'sentence' rather than what was 'typically' spoken... Rather than 'hey, how're you doing', or rather than, 'haha haha', were we still able to fashion new sentences; ones which might have been used in the past but ones which were not as 'daily used'.. Some examples I thought of at that time was: 'She got into the car with her red dress on'. 'Would you know which way _____ is'. 'Could you give 'me' the directions, please'? 'Thank you, much obliged'. etc.... Not that fantastic for sentence 'creations' but still these sentences were one of the 'longer' sentences, syllable and word wise, that was still in the mind, especially in mine. And so after I asked a person whom I was conversing with to do the same, the conversation came to a halt and the mind drew a blank. So yes... my name is Deorro 1 for this forum... Not for any spectacular reason but hey, at least I thought it up, kind of, right? Pleased to meet you and to make your acquaintance.
