Exploring Imagination

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

Recall a scene from a book you've read or from a favorite daydream. Then recall a vacation or trip you have taken. For about thirty seconds recall first one and then the other. Now, excluding differences in content (degree of vividness or type of activity, or conscious decision about which is real), attempt to determine any difference between the two as memories. You will find that, as memories, there is no difference. You can recall one as easily as the other and, in fact, the scene from the book or the daydream might have a stronger present effect on you than the "real" memory.

The point: Your mind does not make distinctions between memories, regardless of the source. For the mind, the ones that are most real are the ones with the greatest sensory impact.
