"Since our childhood, we have received information from our surrounding, absorbed them and got influenced from them. The tales that we have heard, the cultural mythos, the narratives relayed to us by our grandmothers during bedtime, the literature that we have read and the social events that we have experienced ourselves or through others have a space of their own in our minds.
All these things that occur during our lives and in our environment leave marks on our minds and become “Memories”.
Our comprehension of life is derived from a wide variety of factors through our life’s experiences. Our minds decode these experiences and form an own perception, allowing us to apply them in every suitable occasion and getting influenced from the feedbacks. This interacting and repeating movement forms dynamic cycles, it guides us to shape our characteristic manners and positions itself in our subconscious minds.
If we step into our long past which is stored in our memories, we may find the origins of our later ideas. The transferring process from the past to the present helps us to move into the future and further experiences.
In continuation of working on the concept of Identity, I am confronted with the importance of our past and moments, we have experienced during our life on our cognitive process. Memory and notion of the possession of a specific moment in our life, which is called autobiographical memory, has brought me to the significant role of Memory as a provider for our sense of personal identity."
