Memory

Do you have the memory of an elephant?  Or do you forget easily? As powerful as a computer, our brain is shaped like a cauliflower. It allows us to think, speak, interpret…andcombined with the nervous systemit’s the control tower of our bodyIf we hurt ourselves, it’s the brain that lets us feel that pain and remember it. This sensory memory registers the event in our history and, at some point in time, the injury will be but a recollection we will tell stories about, as a conquering hero, thanks to our powerful imagination. The same parallel can be drawn with collective memoryWhat a group of people has lived becomes a part of their identity and leaves traces. Rituals, art, photography, as well as oral and written a traditions, allow for the transmission of this heritage. What is the legacy of your ancestors? How would you like to be remembered by future generations?
