I cannot see your egg unless I can physically see it.
I have tried focusing on candles, imaging a line, dot, circle......
Yes i have memories but it's more like a book than a film if that makes sense - i've had this conversation many times and nobody can make sense of
As i said it's like a flash of an impression, fleeting at best.
I have been working on this for almost 40 years ever since 1st reading about it. Probably memory tricks were what got me started but i can't remember
I can and do imagine but again more like a written story of words not a movie with pictures - make any sense?
I remember both feeling cold in the wind and enjoying the freshness of a cool breeze on a hot day but it's the physical sensation i remember not the
where or what was happening.
Never been one for favourites but i vaguely remember losing a soft toy on the farm when i was 4 or 5 - it was small and i think a dog as it was called
Dougal (after the dog in Magic Roundabout- memory just popped up) but as to colours pattern i have no memory.
No memory of crawling at all but i have seen many pics of me from being a baby onwards on. Starts with black and white
I can recognise smells and know i have smelt them but i am trying to remember a smell and really struggling - i remember occasions when there would
have been a smell -farm, compost sites, bakeries, hospital but not individual instances - do you understand the difference i am trying to make ?
Touch would be the same - i know sandpaper is rough and glass is smooth but again remembering a specific event and feel - no
P.S. Thanks i now realise not only am i internally blind, i am senseless as i am now trying to recall specific memories including sound and i can't do
An example - birth of my 1st son - i was there helping at the action end and i can't picture it, hear his 1st cry, smell the afterbirth or how he felt
in my arms moments later - i remember i was amazed, ecstatic, tears in my eyes but i cannot re experience the memory in my mind - i can remember i
felt great but not how it was to be feeling that - does that help or explain at all?
edit was grammatical - i'll change them as i notice them
