Memories are thought to be stored in the body somehow, but nobody really knows how, or so they say.
I guess the memory is a continued impulse from the outside that circulates the body for as long as we remember it. The more of a sensation we get from it, the longer it is stored. I also advocate that no memories are stored in the brain, but rather in our neural network, and they keep circling the body until they wear off.
Sometimes memories are so painful or shocking we remember them for a long time without wanting to, or they might come to us at strange times.
I would say that memories are transmitted along the pathways inside us to our brain and then get decoded for the brain to interpret. This would be like my jellyfish example from perception, where the jelly fish remembers nothing, as it has no brain, it would not even remember where it has been, or, that it is in a 'bunch' of them.
So, without a brain you cannot remember anything. I take back what i said, i think the brain keeps the memories inside of it to circulate, as it cannot have an electric current carrying information without interpetation all the time and then deciphering it. It also cannot stop and form 'matter' on the brain, as that would lead to brain growth or something. So, it would circulate inside the brain, and the less you concentrate when you do something the less likely you are to remember it. Concentration therefore would be sensualising the senses for purposes of added neural activity - focus. Focus would be where you mentally and willfully wish the senses into the task you have before you, like a predator that has it's eyes at the front. So you could say that when we are 'normal' we would be like a herbivore - aware of all surrounds, but when we are focusing we would be more like a predator. Useless info!
So, the memories are stored inside our brains and circulate. The more of a sensation we get from them the more the brain transfers them around, and the more likely we are to remember. When we forget something, the electric current has suffered in it's activity and then it can be rejuvenated by thinking of that senseation, whatever it was.
I guess the memories are stored because they would form over the muscle known as the brain. It is common knowledge that muscles can remember things, like training in sports - the muscles remember and form according to how the sport is played.
If we were to observe a headache, the brain muscle would not be damaged, but rather a tiny sliver of the network. This impulse could be so charged that the pain it causes the senses could translate into a burst blood vessel in the brain, or, just translate into a painful thingy on the brain.
If you were to want to remember something, then you would need to focus to make the sensation resounding for your senses. If then you see yourself not learning or understanding things, then you need to get the sensations in sync, so you would need to think of other things 'prior' to this new sensation so that the body can build on the memories and form a working understanding. That is why revision is so important for any task before hand.
If there was a way to make sure you understand everything you are working with, then you would need to think of related things to that thing to get an understanding for it. So, if you were faced with a tough trigonometry question, tthen think of a triangle, think of some angles, make some mock equations, and see how it works then.0 Thanks, 0 Likes, 0 Dislikes
