Re: There's more to me than memories...

We dont even have a great understanding of how 'memory' operates in humans
in the first place. It could be much more closely tied to the act of
cognition than the term 'memory' (which has an implicit assumption, dont you
think, that memory is a separate, self contained area, like a library) seems
to imply. I can envision a very feasible scenario whereby 'remembering'
something in specific just involves accessing a specific pathway that is
multifunctional and tied rather intimately to reasoning. It may be more
aptly conceptualized as a verb (remembering), rather than a noun (memory),
in which case this conversation is somewhat irrelevant.
