Memory recall.

In the East the symbol of wisdom.

When you recall an occurrence, place etc. for the purpose, say, of writing or relating it, how do you effect the recall; what is the “mechanism”? [To give clues could be counter-productive.]

Please think this through carefully before answering – better still, try it and observe what you do.
I am very interested in how others do this.


About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book.

    A couple of days ago this occurred to me:
    I just visualise the event or situation, take myself there and let the scene re-enact itself. I am the observer and can see, in a detached way, what went on as well as be aware of the emotions etc. involved.

    It goes extremely fast, and is very visual = there is no movement in the memory recall, it is static with some, but certainly not all details.

        Bert, I agree with “speed” and “no movement” and add:
        1. There is a conscious switch to memory t effect the recall.
        2. A conscious effort is required to take the memory back further.
        3. The recall, or memory, is as a picture i.e. visual although the eyes are obvious not involved. I was going to say that the picture is the result of an imprint on the brain but, although that may be so, there has to be an imprint of sorts elsewhere because after we “somp” (go to my dictionary above) all memory exists without the brain and, yes, the neoption continues, the “imprint” or memory is part of the moul. Now, if anyone does not understand that they will have to read what I have written or, if they have read what I have written, they will have to search or re-read until they do 🙂

        As it happens, my comment of 10.16 a.m. above clearly illustrates how a mental effort can lead to bypassing the mind to a neoption.

Well, what do you say?
