Paradise Road: Mind, Memory and Myth

Look Both Ways

Whichever explanation one chooses to accept regarding the nature and function of what we broadly term the ‘mind’, there would appear to be ample evidence to support the fact that this human faculty emcompasses more than one level of perception or consciousness. The exoteric attributes are obvious, and the emotional implications – although less logical in sequence and reaction – are also undeniable from a rational angle.  But then comes the point at which the unknown, or perhaps at present unprovable, esoteric aspects make their appearance and we enter the realms of memory.

From a psychological standpoint, memory can be both selective and irrational. In some cases the more pleasant aspects of past events appear to surface, distasteful memories being conveniently disregarded, while in others the reverse applies, depending on the mental state of the individual. The harbouring of past ills, or the over-emphasis of old traumas, can be conducive to mental imbalances or psychosomatic ailments. Recent work with terminal cancer patients has tended to confirm the view held by some doctors that suppressed frustrations, as well as nurtured grievances, do take their inevitable toll on physical health, and can often manifest in the form of a killer disease. Some more radical schools of healing have actually labelled these conditions ‘exit doors’ – escapes from life’s unendurable traumas and stresses.
