The unexamined life is not worth living - Socrates
“When you think of moments that shaped you, you question them in different ways. This introspection is important to process memories in a way that you get comfortable with them. We cannot change what has happened, but we can only revisit them in different ways and look at them through different lenses”
“Going back to an event over and over again can be rather monotonous – But there is a discovery in the repetition. You are able to spend time in the moment, in detail and you are able to convert thought into a visual language. Now you are able to understand the memory through your body”
“Remember that you are looking at your past based on where you are today. So a memory is a reflection of the past from this very moment. So we are already filtering the memory through the concept of time. This brings in what I call necessary bias and gives us the possibility of having a conversation with the memory”
“We’re all made up of memories, which we convert to stories.”
