Memory is overrated.

The mind only sees what it is trained to see, which sometimes can even result us to missing the obvious. We thought we remember what we experienced, perfectly. Not knowing that the recollection of memories is sometimes tainted with our personal biasness and expectations.

The trick is to see what you're trained to see. Then see it from a view that you've absolutely no experience of. Now that may require some kind of rewiring and reprogramming. Because the latter requires a bit of wrestle with the ego.


  1. I think this very important post might benefit with a little less words :) and IMHO memory is never overrated, it is all we have.

  2. Memory is never an accurate representation of history because it is always biased to the person's experience.
