quote:Memory is really two different things.
quote:It is the ability of the past to change the future
quote:(as in Hadrian's example of a piece of paper that has been permanently changed by a past act of it being folded).
quote:It is also the ability to be able to recreate an image of the past from the present.
quote:The ability to recreate the past must imply that the past has changed the present (otherwise you would not have any basis within the present upon which you could recreate the past), but it does not follow that all changes that the past creates upon the present would inevitably allow a recreation of the past. If two different events within the past could have created the same present state, then the present state is not such as to be able to uniquely discern which of those past events had occurred.

quote:quote:(as in Hadrian's example of a piece of paper that has been permanently changed by a past act of it being folded).Well this is not correct. The memory is not permanent and is subject to the changes that the memory surface is subject to. Just as our memories are not accurate and are changed by our mind interplaying with them and new data being put in place.
quote:Originally posted by HadrianAll memory is inaccurate because it is subject to the memory surface it on and there is nothing in the physical universe that will stay the same forever.
quote:We can not alter past or the future.
quote: we can only put that plan into action in the “Now”.
