LEAF FOSSIL


Memories are evidence expressed as afterimages. They show that someone or something was there; that something notable happened; that a person’s opinions, feelings, beliefs, and/or perceptions had changed as a result; and that a lasting impression had been made. Memories are proof of all of those things.

The one thing that memories cannot prove, however, is whether the thing remembered was actually real: that it did exist and did happen or was only a fabrication of someone’s imagination.
