By Lynard Barnes

all of us have memories.

Memory is the earlier. reminiscence is the background of perceptions perceived. In an age within which the area bombards our senses probably continuous, we must always have a universe choked with thoughts defining and well labeling our prior. 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 prior. It begins with an easy query: the place do the pictures we adventure in nightly goals come from? goals are thoughts and stories are awareness. yet conundrums abound during this solution which keeps to plague philosophers and scientists given that Aristotle got here up with the belief of a soul or brain. What some time past explains the “un-experienced” in thoughts? Flying unaided over treetops; being chased by means of eight-legged kittens; meandering via a jasmine scented box of crimson vegetation? by no means skilled, by no means consciously remembered, but a dream?

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

From visible notion, to the electro-chemical manufacturing unit of neurons; from neurotransmitters and millisecond clocks; from desires to déjà vu stories: an exploration into the neuroscience of the mind and the inexplicable proposal of a self- rising from opposing forces, a quick background OF reminiscence offers an empirical bridge among technology and the conundrum of consciousness.
