You are not your memories. You are that person who reflects upon your memories with emotions and abstract thought. You are your train of thought that
you share with no one else, because your train of thought has prejudices built from personal experience.
Further, your dilemma could be the very reason everything appears to be so relative...
Take a tree for example. When thinking of a tree you might think tall, you might think photosynthesis, you might think foliage, you might think shade,
you might think bark, you might think of autumn, and you might think of plant cells. Any of those thoughts could then lead you on to other thoughts
and memories that would be based upon your own train of thought, prejudices, and emotions - none of which, anyone else would share, even if they
understand everything about you, your thoughts, and trees, because they are not your thoughts, and nor are you - you're that person thinking those
In short: You would not assimilate.
