Think back in time. Imagine you are staring into a mirror. You see a reflection of you staring straight back.
How do you know that the image you see is you?
How has your memory worked to identify you as you?
Think back in time and try to remember your first memory.
Use your senses to recall the memory as vividly as you can.
In order to recall your first memory, you’ve used your Long Term Memory.
Long Term Memory is information that has been processed, consolidated and stored within your brain.
The human brain is capable of storing a vast amount of long term memories.
How far back can you go into your past and what was your first memory?
