I wonder if there is any relation between this from a Hugo Schwyzer post about people who keep lists of past sexual partners:
I was also curious to hear why people kept lists. I heard the same common refrain from men and women alike: “I don’t want to forget my past.”
And this from Umberto Eco on the reasons that humans are and have always been list-makers:
We have a limit, a very discouraging, humiliating limit: death. That’s why we like all the things that we assume have no limits and, therefore, no end. It’s a way of escaping thoughts about death. We like lists because we don’t want to die.
