10cm on The Unifying Force of Memory

notebook2.jpg

“It seems, then, that we owe to memory almost all that we either have or are; that our ideas and conceptions are its work, and that our every perception, thought, and movement is derived from this source. Memory collects the countless phenomena of our existence into a single whole; and as our bodies would be scattered into the dust of their component atoms if they were not held together by the attraction of matter, so our consciousness would be broken up into as many framents as we had lived seconds but for the binding and unifying force of memory.”

–Ewald Hering 1870
