“We tend to think that memories are stored in our brains just as they are in computers. Once registered, the data is put away for safekeeping and eventual recall. The facts don’t change, but neuroscientists have shown that each time we remember something, we are reconstructing the event, reassembling it from traces throughout the brain.” – Ken Eisold PHD
