I wanted to talk about how voices often can access super obscure memories that you would never, ever remember consciously even if you weren’t hearing voices. My theory is some voices must have some sort of special access to the memory parts of your brain, or the subconscious, etc. When the voices tell the person of this memory, naturally they seem very familiar so they are TRUE memories (not fake ones made up by the voice).
Tonight, my voice used deep, dark parts of my memory to access something I physically saw while standing watching a college math grade sheet in 1997. It was the percentage grade of a person I was familiar with at the time. When he told me, I felt yes, that seems familiar.
My voice says he can, at will, access these sorts of memories especially when what he’s talking about is related to the memory. I guess my thing is HOW can they do it? I can’t do it, how can they?
Another super obscure memory was me in church at the age of 5. The voice told me I was wondering why a certain last name was being repeated by the preacher. Funnily enough, it was familiar as a memory, but this memory is exceptionally obscure especially when it was roughly 30 years ago.
He accesses parts of my memory often, and even access thoughts you had at the time.
So does anyone have the same thing? And any thoughts or theories on HOW the voice does it, or WHAT it’s doing?
It’s just STRANGE that a voice in my mind be better at accessing memories than myself.
