Thoughts on Memory
Mental Relativity predicts that repetition of the
same experience leads to a "pattern of familiarity" that serves to insulate an
experienced thoton [the smallest particle of self-awareness] from further outside
stimulation, and also prevents loss of the thoton's charge. In other words, repetitive
experience provides inertia to the energy level of a thoton, hindering its increase or
MR notes a difference in memory between the
recreation of an original observation and the creation of a new observation: the internal
synthesis of creative thought. In terms of a KTAD [Knowledge, Thought, Ability, Desire],
Observation would be seen as K, Synthesis as T. These could both be modified by Duration
and/or Repetition, seen as A and D respectively.
The psychological concept of "cues" in
long term memory really miss the point. Memory is not a set of experiences that exist in a
hard edged domain in the brain, but rather are a "tendency" that exists in the
soft-edged probability maps of the mind. Cues cannot successfully explain the structure of
multi-connected memories. Rather, look at a specific memory as a depression in the mind,
much like the depression in space caused by an object, say a planet. The greater the mass
of the object, the deeper the depression in space. The greater the extent of the memory,
the deeper the depression in the mind. Just as with physical gravitation, mental
gravitation from any given memory extends throughout the mind, affecting all other
memories to varying degrees, based on their distance (difference) from each other. There
is no absolute center to the mind, but rather an enormous number of memory points from
which to measure all the others.
Just as with space, mental gravity is a function
both of the mass of the memory (its extent - that is the number of thotons it contains)
and the distance in space (difference in pattern in mind) between two memories. Also, a
memory may become so extensive, that it reaches a critical mass and collapses into a black
hole, essentially invisible to the mind at large, self-sustaining and absorptive. This is
the essence of anything held to be a given. It is the creation of a blind spot. It is
these blind spots that are the sources of the unseen motivations that drive us. Each one
is an assumption of a causal relationship that ceases to be reevaluated. They are both
essential to the process of complex thought by allowing the mind not to have to re-figure
if "proven" subordinate relationships are true, but are also a detriment to
re-evaluating the foundations of one's beliefs by forcing the mind to avoid discovering
errors in its own operating system.
