Remember this. From information theory, which posits that there is no meaning without memory, and from The Memory Palace of Matteo Ricci which described how one creates enduring access to memory through an association with strong images, comes this Memento, cast in the form of music, which is one of the keys to memory -- just like an image, a fragrance or a flavor, music has the power to recall another time and circumstance so completely that you feel it physically as well as apprehending it mentally.
And of course, for Americans, May 30 is Memorial Day, and while there's nothing military about this mix, it does speak to the idea of memory, acknowledging that the richest memories, and probably the last ones we will ever let go of, are about whatever we have loved. Whether we let those memories be and make our peace with the past, or hold them close and hope to make more for the future, everything we know, we know through memories.
Thx to StG and Giant Step DJ service once more.
