99. Audiographic memory

Post by bjkwon » June 15th, 2020, 12:01 am

You might have forgotten his name or what he looked like; but upon recognizing his voice, you know he was your classmate decades ago. A seemingly simple sound connects you to endless chains of memories. A train horn evokes your memories far more than just a train. Your childhood favorite tune brings back the names of your buddies. A bird's song takes you back to the house you grew up in. Memories through sounds are more vivid than those through images because sounds linger in your mind longer. Memories are traces of your life; sounds are staples of your memory.
