CHAPTER I
THE ELEMENTS OF MEMORY[Sidenote:
Four Special Memory Processes
]You have learned of the sense−perceptive and judicial processes by which your mind acquires its knowledgeof the outside world. You come now to a study of the phenomenon of memory, the instrument by which yourmind retains and makes use of its knowledge, the agency that has power to resurrect the buried past or powerto enfold us in a Paradise of dreams more perfect than reality.In the broadest sense, memory is the faculty of the mind by which we (1)
retain
, (2)
recall
, (3)
picture to themind's eye
, and (4)
recognize
past experiences.Memory involves, therefore, four elements,
Retention
,
Recall
,
Imagination
and
Recognition
.THE MENTAL TREASURE VAULT AND ITS LOST COMBINATION[Illustration: Decorative Header]
CHAPTER II
THE MENTAL TREASURE VAULT AND ITS LOST COMBINATION[Sidenote:
What Everyone Thinks
]Almost everyone seems to think that we retain in the mind
only
those things that we can voluntarily recall;that memory, in other words, is limited to the power of voluntary reproduction.This is a profound error. It is an inexcusable error. The daily papers are constantly reporting cases of the lapseand restoration of memory that contain all the elements of underlying truth on this subject.[Sidenote:
Causes of Forgetfulness
]It is plain enough that the memory
seems
decidedly limited in its scope. This is because our power of voluntary recall is decidedly limited.But it does not follow simply because we are without the power to deliberately recall certain experiences thatall mental trace of those experiences is lost to us._Those experiences that we are unable to recall are those that we disregarded when they occurred becausethey possessed no special interest for us. They are there, but no mental associations or connections with powerto awaken them have arisen in consciousness._
