Recall multisensory recollections creatively. Cause errors. Fix them. I still remember where I was, what I was, when I was shot. Vivid, homesick from lying. Radio playing minutes, precise words, imagine: “Ladies and gentlemen, the President is dead.” That scene replayed perfectly the past of human memory. Clarity is certainly wrong. Original memory laid down in November for the last time, each time subtly altered. What goes back is the new version overwriting the old. Intimately involved experience will create embarrassments, failures, connection deeper than purpose; memory predicts the future. Significance will survive longer, produce bodies kicked into overdrive. Respiration quickens, muscles burst, tell the next few minutes to be especially robust, arousing clips of weeks remembered. Make clear dangers, tragic formation mediated through perfect evolution. This is an over – simplification.
