96. Several logical fallacies in this last post.
Edited on Thu Nov-10-11 04:22 PM by MarkCharles
If you want, I will point them out.

There is also the most recent research upon old and lost memories from childhood, how they become MORE distorted with age, who what we remembered 10 years ago is more accurate than what we remember from 30 years ago. In short, we add features to the older memories to add to the importance in our validation of those memories. I'm not saying any of us, ( or you) LIE about our childhood memories, but most research says that we remember images, or even smells, feelings, sounds, more than actual "films" and "scripts" of events from pre adolescent years, especially.

We THINK we remember a whole event, what we remember is what we WANT to remember; and we fill in what we WANT to remember and WANT to believe we remember not actual events. This changes as our minds mature, between 13-25 years of age, when our brains fully mature, as does the rest of our physical body. We remember sequential events, the walk down the aisle at our wedding, the vows, the dances at the reception. We still don't remember every word or every second, even of the most memorable events in our lives.........some are still there, and can be recalled by our spouse saying, "do you remember when you did this?"

Memory is a tricky reality, even for the best of us. We can remember lyrics to songs we used to sing as children or as teens or young adults, but we cannot remember what the first line is to other songs to which we know the tune. "THAT SOUNDS FAMILIAR" to an instrumental version of something we have heard 1000 times, but we cannot recall the lyrics, or we hear the first line sung by the original artist, and we remember each and every word of the same song, once we hear that cue.

I'm glad you got to go to Provincetown, MA about 110 miles from Providence, RI, Providence, RI has lots of bridges and hills, Provincetown, not a single one, a couple hills, no gullies, a spit of land surrounded by sand and a small shallow harbor for fishing and lobster boats.
Providence, RI, not to be sneezed at, capital of RI, great restaurants, an premier university, (Brown) and a great school of design and art, (Rhode Island School of Design), and a premier cooking college, (Johnson and Wales). Both places, city and town, hidden gems of New England. Do come back!
