Once Seen, Always There

This morning I was researching about babies and the way their memory works.  It’s quite a bit more complicated than most people seem to believe.  For example, toddlers can still remember, albeit subconsciously, people they met only once years beforehand as babies.  Also, the brain of a baby is, in fact, actually able to process memories.  It’s just that it takes years in order for the memories to become “more complex”.

I find this incredible.  Once people see something, that memory stays stored in the brain forever.  It doesn’t matter that the memory may be subconscious; it’s still there.  This fact has gotten me through plenty of tough times, and it truly is a testament to the power of human’s memory itself.
