Got another video!!! A personal story about me being cool.
The creative mind can really mess with your head!
BTW, if you were seeing sparkling lights, you might have had a migraine. That's one of the symptoms for some...
That's interesting because my head kind of felt like after you work out for the first time. The soreness was there but not really bad.
Edit: And I forgot to put this in the video: The neo cortex is where the conscious memories are stored and it surrounds the whole brain. Meanwhile the hippocampus is where the "narrative" takes place and also where the memory begins. So my "lights" were coming on because they were super charged. Super charged long term memory.
My hypothesis on the girl is that her long term memory makes up for her short term but cannot give you a narrative. This would be consistent with the idea that hippocampus is the story teller. She can still form new memories however. She recognised me, knows my name, but I think she "borrows" people's stories and identifies with them to the point she thinks they are her own. Either way this girl is fascinating to me.
