Memories. What can you say about them? They are hated. They are necessary for survival. To induce a feeling as strongly as one gets when remembering is grand, indeed. How else would we be able to live?

Memories. What can you say about them? They are beloved. The only things that allow us to continue in this great continuity. Forget anything not, as long as you remember.

Does the importance of the past get greater for each passing second? Because for each passing second there is more past. Only, of course, if 'the past' isnt completely subjective, which it is.

This memory currently being created means nothing beyond boredom relief. To have opinions! OH what a fallacy. So go on, but remember.



(This post is brought to you by a long time member, who has seen the destruction of all you now see. Good luck with the future. I have love for all of you, even though you cant see through the thrid eye.)

Some of them are, yes.

I see no evidence that memories are physiologically necessary for survival. Sure helps in the adaptability department though.

Perhaps. If we assume that the universe has perfect causality, then I would say the importance of any past moment of time is inversely proportional to the amount of knowledge one has about the present. This is because, if this were the case, complete knowledge about the present would allow one to completely know all of the past.

Quote:

Only in a certain representations. As a mathematical abstraction, the past is any point in time before another given point, which does have "objective" meaning.

Memories light the corner of my mind.
Misty water color memories
Of the way we were.

Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind,
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were.

Can it be that it was all so simple then,
Or has time rewritten every line?
If we had the chance to do it all again,
Tell me? would we? could we?
Memories may be beautiful and yet,
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget.
So it's the laughter
We will remember,
Whenever we remember
The way we were.

A great song that shows the influence of emotion on memory.
