I can go as far back as inside the womb...but there's a huge gap in my memory from the early years. Actually, now that I think of it, there's a couple gaps - one was from years 1-4, and another gap in the 5-6 range (I had an evil babysitter, so I didn't want to remember those).

One of the earliest I can remember is somersaulting down the stairs into the basement at my first house - It was a family party and I was half crying and laughing as I fell down them. Dad caught me before I hit the cement steps at the bottom. They were worried sick because I was bleeding on top of my head (there's still a bump to this day), so the rest of the day was me holding a towel to my head in the bathroom.

The scary twist? My parents say I lost my balance - I'll still swear something pushed me (There were a couple spooky things that happened in that house).

It's funny that I was about to post my earliest memory and then and I see your post and I have just remembered a memory of falling down the stairs as a toddler.

My earliest memory is off getting my diaper changed at about a year old... Funny thing is in the memory I am aware that my diaper is being changed by my mother and feel quite embarrassed about the situation? The memory is dreamlike but is definatnly real... My life then sort of fades and I then have a memory of falling over and having my father pick me up.

It's weird how early memories feel sort of dreamlike yet real at the same time and how they just fade away and into something else that might be a couiple of years later!

The awesome thing about memory is how you can use recent memories to drill down to more distant ones.

For example -- I can remember being 4, living in an apartment complex in Seattle, and sitting in my dad's lap, in his little blue Honda, steering while he pumped the gas and brake pedals. Before that, I remember we had two rabbits, and our neighbor tossed poisoned food into their cages because he didn't like my parents. I remember clear as what I had for breakfast this morning, finding them dead in their cages when I was a week past 3 years old. Before that I remember balancing myself next to our coffee table, and trying to walk from the edge of the table to a lazy-boy style chair a few feet away. I remember that it was easier to reach the chair from the table if I walked really fast and caught myself on the chair before falling over completely.

I don't remember much before that, at least consciously.

I do two things to keep my memory sharp: First -- I create memory warehouses, and stock them with interesting artifacts which I later associate with information I wish to retain. In visualizing a particular warehouse I recall large chunks of data, such as the content of favorite books.

The other thing I do is make a mental note of what I have for breakfast each morning, and associating each of these sense memories with a date. When I want to drill down, I simply summon the most recent sense memory of sage sausage patties and waffles (for example) and then step back (or forward) through previous days until I find a particular date. Because each day begins with a strong sense memory, I can often recall details of other events, conversations or experiences that are associated with a particular day, at least at a rudimentary level, going back dozens of years, since I began the practice in 1987.

None of this has tangible value, but it's great for writing, and makes for fun party tricks.

I remember being born as i'm sure many others do too. I call them hallucinations though

My earliest is actually very young, 6 months. My dad laid down on his side to take a baby pic so the camera was perpendicular to the floor. All the other ones were standard parallel angles, so I think it was the uniqueness of the angle that made it stick in my memory. Was able to date as when I found the picture it had my age written on it. I actually have maybe 10 memories scattered around from then til 4, but only ballpark dates for those.

Awesome thread! Glad you asked. My first memory is me coming into my body I'm pretty sure. It's the first memory i have, regardless of if it is my coming into body or not.(imagine your consciousness traveling by itself) The image appears, I'm like a few thousand feet up i suppose. I have no concept of who or what i am or even able to think really, Just kinda of like Huh? and what? and this is odd. I'm traveling downwards towards this yellow car and eventually i go through the roof of said car and plop into my body sitting in the backseat, I guess around 3 years old? I realize that somebody with knowledge of some new agey type stuff could make something like this up to boost their ego or whatever, but this is the first memory I have, and no douchemasters will stop me from sharing it

The earliest memory i can remember was in 1999, when i was about three years old. I was being held my dad on the ferry towards manhattan. It was a windy day, that i remember. The only reason i know how old i was is because there was a picture taken of me that day and i asked my mother anbout it and she said i was three. I still cant believe i remembered that far back!

My earliest memory was lying in bed, scared to death of the buzzing of the transformer on the electric blanket in my bed.
I guess 2 or 3.
I still prefer being cold to this day.
