HOW do it COME BACK?
Have you ever thought about something,and then forgot about it for thinking of something else,and it comes back at various times to your memory,and if you don't catch it it will slip away again.What is your experience?How do yours come back?
This is a complex question. You have at least two brains - left and right, and possibly in the spinal cord as a third. You might consider the Amygdala as a fourth, and there are loads of neurons in the heart. Some think that every cell in the body is part of the system of memory.) Certain processes that initiate memory go into short term memory which is a kind of small register of about 7 symbols. These are fleeting. Unless you keep refreshing that register, the information gets replaced. Longer term memory seems to require repetition, some kind of emotional impact, and linking with other patterns in the brain. Recall needs a trigger. No one really knows exactly where and how memory is formed. But...
It sounds like you have had an idea, stuck some parts of it in short term memory, not quite made an emotional attachment and then lost it. But since the idea started below conscious thought, whatever triggered it can rise again if the right triggers come along. Basically you can't get it back on demand. You need to re-trace your steps for when you had the idea and this will hopefully provide those triggers again.
If you wan't to cement a short term memory, then link it to something huge, stupid, rude or otherwise emotionally charged.
Example: Get roast chicken for dinner, and carrots.
Link it: Imagine a giant carrot-colored orange chicken with green stuff (like a carrot) coming from its head. The chicken is on fire and is the size of a supermarket.
Now it is in long term memory.
There has been a lot of occurrences with the exact explanation. But the thing was I would remember what the heck I was thinking about till a week later till it was to late o do anything about it.
these things are so simple that we might not give them credit.
As a girl, listening to the radiio, a late nite news show, giving voice, refuge, legal advice to battered women..................................it had nothing to do with me......until years later. Then when needed, it was there.
Hungry people? My Grandparents GAVE food away. Yet, the hungry were among us.
Abused children? My grandparents loved me...............
sitll, I must learn of those who were tortured.
Buried in my mind...........IT is there,,,,,,,,the abused, the hungry, those needing clothes.....
I am not the answer to the ills of mankind...............still, I am led to those who I can aid.
Yes, it comes back...............my hubby said.............Harley Davidson had not made a shaft driven motorcylcle...................research WW2....................it all comes back............yes, it does.
There is a reason for the little tidbits that we know.
yes, Apostle, there is a reason for the things we know.
mine come back when i'm doing completely random things, then suddenly it'll hit me, or at 2 in the mornignt when i'm trying to get to sleep i'll suddenly shout it out, soon to be followed by a nudge in the ribs for waking my partner up, lol
