Oliver Sacks on Memory, Plagiarism & Creativity

my notes ( ? )

Remind me to buy this guy's books: "There is no way by which events can be directly recorded in our brains; they are experienced and constructed in a highly subjective way, different in every individual, differently reinterpreted or reexperienced whenever recollected. . . . Frequently, our only truth is narrative truth, the stories we tell each other, and ourselves-the stories we continually recategorize and refine. Such subjectivity is built into the very nature of memory" - Neurologist Oliver Sacks on Memory, Plagiarism, and the Necessary Forgettings of Creativity | Brain Pickings
