  • The capacity of mind to retrieve and reproduce information that is not currently present in awareness.
  • The capacity of mind to retrieve and reproduce an impression of a circumstance that is not currently present in awareness.
  • Memory is closely linked with imagination. As all information and circumstances are imagined in the first place, each act of remembering is a new act of imagination.
  • Eidetic memory, total recall, and other extremely powerful forms of memory are siddhic capacities for accessing information stored at higher levels of Supreme Mind. The information in higher mind is also maintained by a continuous act of imagination. Even at the highest levels of Mind, the information changes from one access to the next. Thus memory can never be completely reliable.
  • When it is clearly recognized that past, present, and future are all co-arising, memory as such ceases to function.
  • When the simultaneity of all possible pasts, presents, and futures is clearly recognized, there is no distinction between creating and remembering.
