We are no longer experiencing that original moment in time. We are now recalling what we think happened or maybe what we wanted (or didn’t want) to happen.
I was at the coast earlier this week taking pictures on my iPhone with my macro lens. At one point I forgot to take the lens off and ended up with a very blurry picture. I laughed because, being nearsighted, this is how I see the world without my glasses. But I also realized that many times this is also how I experience a memory. It’s not truly a detailed recapture of the original event but an impression.
