all of us have memories.

Memory is the earlier. reminiscence is the historical past of perceptions perceived. In an age within which the realm bombards our senses doubtless continuous, we must always have a universe jam-packed with stories defining and well labeling our previous. yet what precisely is the past?

Using foundations laid via neuroscience, a brief background OF reminiscence opens an exploration into the mind that perceives and the brain that recalls and reacts to the earlier. It starts off with an easy query: the place do the pictures we adventure in nightly desires come from? desires are stories and stories are recognition. yet conundrums abound during this solution which maintains to plague philosophers and scientists because Aristotle got here up with the assumption of a soul or brain. What long ago explains the “un-experienced” in stories? Flying unaided over treetops; being chased by means of eight-legged kittens; meandering via a jasmine scented box of crimson plants? by no means skilled, by no means consciously remembered, but a dream?

“Suppose we've all of it improper. believe our cognizance is the simultaneous act of 2 entities one another in a funhouse reflect we name the universe. . . “

From visible conception, to the electro-chemical manufacturing unit of neurons; from neurotransmitters and millisecond clocks; from goals to déjà vu reviews: an exploration into the neuroscience of the mind and the inexplicable proposal of a self- rising from opposing forces, a quick heritage OF reminiscence offers an empirical bridge among technological know-how and the conundrum of consciousness.
