People often have old watches, old cars or some old articles which are not functional but they don't feel like throwing them away. So what purpose does such a feeling serve and how is it helpful or harmful for our survival?

  • $\begingroup$ As it stands your question is broad. You talk of both useless and useful objects with sentimental value, and both can have varying reasons for their sentimental value. Sentimental value can come from being the first ever car, first apartment.... to having history with a member of family or ancestors who you never met. Can you narrow your question down to make it more answerable without writing a textbook on sentimental nostalgia 😊 $\endgroup$ – Chris Rogers Jun 27 '20 at 9:53
