High speed is a menace to memory, because memory depends on time and spatial awareness.

Robert Walser (The Walk): "I shall never understand, how it can be called a pleasure to hurtle past all the images and objects which our beautiful earth displays, as if one had gone mad and had to accelerate for fear of despair."

Milan Kundera (Slowness): "There is a bond between slowness and memory, between speed and forgetting. [...] The degree of slowness is directly proportional to the intensity of memory; the degree of speed is directly proportional to the intensity of forgetting."
