  The best definition for the operative memory (OM) was from Cicero: Tene rem, (acta), verba sequentur . Have an image, a conception under attention and linked words, events and acts shall emerge from the periphery of your attention. We may also say: maintain an imagination under attention, linked words, events and facts shall appear. Your attention may remain centered on the focused object and you may feel the presence of collateral events that may be centered soon or later to complete your presentation. You can soon bring the early focused image under attention again together with linked images and words. So Cicero did not break own attention with an empty interval in speaking and the attention of followers did not go freely away: in own mind the listener had no prompt alternative to the acts of the speaker and remained attentive; Cicero was thus fascinating. At your age was like this for me, but not now since many decades. Now, you Ulysses have the greatest OM in your life and the most definite events of hunger. You can easily decide to either defend and improve your health and attention or “laissez fare”, i.e. follow the general trend. No responsibility marked the choices before adolescence (before 12 - 16 yrs).
