Memory

The ideas that pertain to the concept 'memory' serve to illustrate how scientists remain in ignorance of the fundamental unity and interdependency of organic phenomena as well as to illustrate the misconceived conceptual method. This as the scientists in memory theory proceed from the assumption that there must be some biological processes that are particular to this concept. Instead of understanding that 'memory' is the perception we form of certain human cognitive activities, they postulate that one could already in primordial forms of life detect those neural processes that are 'memory.' I consider that 'memory' properly speaking is about a human being having the (seeming) feeling of cognitive consciousness about past experiences in a way that can be rendered by abstract expressions (for example in speech by language; or by other forms of human expression). I also consider that that other primates and other animals which have the ability to be cognitively conscious of mental images can be said to posses 'memory' (i.e. the ability to remember), but their 'memory' is limited to the mental images, whereas human 'memory' combines both mental images and verbal conceptual manipulation of the images. In order for this to happen one has to be able to conceptualize experience, which will enable the organism to relate new experience to past experience and so to say reawaken those neural reaction patterns that correlate the new experience with the past experiences. 'Memories' are the cognitive results of processing present environmental stimuli in the background of all our life experiences, as encoded in our neural processing patterns. 'Memories' are the impressions that mental processes lead to when the processes 'recognize' a past experience in the continuous process of interpreting the present. 'Memories' are not a collection of snapshots, mental clips or tokens that one has collected and which would exist stored in the recesses of the brain, rather language and other social practices as stimuli in mental processes give rise to what we perceive as 'memories' as a result of interpreting the present.
