I’d love to read a follow-up post on the cyclic nature of this relationship and how it affects other people.
What popped into my head while reading was that no unremembered moment is ever wasted, because the fact that it gets filtered allows the remembering self to form the coherent picture we need to make sense of life at large. In turn, a functioning remembering self probably has a big role in how our experiencing self decides.
What’s more, we can’t know whether something we did, but don’t remember, actually makes it into the remembering self of others. If it does, that’s huge!
Just a few random thoughts, a very cool concept to explore and one I hadn’t read about before!
