all of us have memories.

Memory is the previous. reminiscence is the heritage of perceptions perceived. In an age within which the realm bombards our senses doubtless continuous, we must always have a universe choked with thoughts defining and smartly labeling our earlier. yet what precisely is the past?

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

“Suppose we have now all of it improper. think our awareness is the simultaneous act of 2 entities taking a look at one another in a funhouse reflect we name the universe. . . “

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