What is it like to be forgotten?

In the philosophical world, there is a famous paper called "What is it like to be a bat?" by Thomas Nagel. Upon reading some Dennett, it seems to be the case that this question was already explored by another, Farrell, in a paper called "Experience," in the book Mind in 1950. I haven't yet read both papers to see the degrees of overlap, but I thought it worth mentioning because it never usually is.
