Recognize the Value of Your Memories

by Paul Scheele

Memories—good and bad—guide us throughout our lives, often because they remain unresolved.

When revisiting Paris 46 years after my first adventure in that glorious city, I stood in the presence of things I’d seen as a child.

I wondered at the magnificent Eiffel Tower, enjoyed the Louvre’s bronze sculpture of Hercules fighting the serpent, and gazed in awe at the Arc de Triomphe commemorating Napoleon’s imperial victories.

What was so amazing is that there I was suddenly having a physical realization of my youthful experience, remembering it all from my child’s mind, but as an adult. That mindful awareness gave me a sense of complete resolve and a wonderful feeling of peace and perspective.

During two rounds of testing, participants typed French translations to the Swahili words. Incorrect translations were presented in subsequent trials until all pairings were correctly translated.

The sleep group completed their first test in the evening, slept, and tested a second time in the morning, 12 hours later. The wake group first tested in the morning, went about their day, and retested 12 hours later in the evening.
