Do you remember your grandparents?
Do you remember your first kiss?
Do you remember the house you grew up in?

These memories are rebuilt to fit you.
These memories are rebuilt by you.
These memories are rebuilt for you.

Memory is not a solid construction; it is in a constant state of transformation. Our memory is not a constant stack of 0s and 1s. It’s not that mundane, memory is creative.

To make a memory is an act of creation; it is like being an artist. We take bits and pieces of experience, some get ground down like a stone in the ocean, some get sharpened like the edge of a knife; all of it fused with the imagination.
