What was I doing when I heard the 9/11 news?
I can remember it!
I was sitting on a chair in the tea-shop of my bhinaju. And I do remember the couple who delivered me the news. I can also remember his body language and everything he said about the live telecast from CNN.
This case is similar with another incident
I can also remember the place, and time and everything around me when I heard about the killings of the Late king Birendra and the massacre that occurred in Nepal.
Do I remember everything for every moment?
Then I will have the storage problem, I can not install a new hard drive on my brain.
One of my friend had told me that the events of such time are stored deeply in the brain and it depends on how much we can recover it. I used to discuss with my friends about remembering the childhood activities when I was M.Sc. second year student at nepal. We used to discuss whether the brain was recycling the memory. Because we had few friends who were claiming the same thing was going on with them too.
By the way, how is the memory stored in the brain?
Is it that the brain becomes extremely awake/active on such events?
What if we could activate our brain to that level forever?
At least without going crazy!
