We Are The Sum Of Our Memories

“What is a man but the sum of his memories? We are the stories we live! The tales we tell ourselves!”
―Subject 16.

Playing Assassin’s Creed Revelations (by far one of the best games I have ever played) Subject 16 said that to Desmond.

Awesome Scene!

Are we the sum of our memories?….hmm……Are we the stories we live?…hmmmm….Are we the tales we tell ourselves?…HMMMMM…!!!

Think about it…What you are right now is the result of situations you have experienced in your life.Your family,your friends,your social cycle,your belief system,your culture,events in your life etc are the factors that have been forming your personality since the day you were born.Imagine how different you would be if you were born in a different country or if you had been raised by a different family.

Different experiences= Different Effects

But where your life’s experiences are stored?…..right..They are stored in your memory.

We are our Memories.Memory is probably the most important asset of human beings.Without it we would be “nothing”.

But it’s like saying that we are just some kind of “robots”,our whole personality depends on imponderable factors(life events). We just react on those events,even our reactions are dependent upon our past(memory). If this is true it means that we don’t have such a thing as free will.It’s even worse than the concept of fate,because people believing in fate believe that someone or something greater than us controls our life in a good way.In my case there’s no such a thing as “a good way”,it is kind of random,it only depends on your life events.That’s all…..

So…………ok I’m confused now @_@

Aaaah I thought I had it but once again THERE’S NO ABSOLUTE CONCLUSION….
