Excerpt About Memory
Generation of MemoryThe memory is images appearing in our minds. The images that appear in your mind are created instantaneously all the time, as is your mind and your head and your body. They're all being generated spontaneously together. So you don't remember in the sense that you recall something that happened at some other time and space. Thinking is creative. Something entirely new is brought to life. Our usual mode of thinking relates what is being generated now to something similar or familiar and calls that memory.
