“Of all Daniel L. Schacter’s seven sins of memory it is the last, persistence, that is the most polarised in its effect (Schacter, 1999). While the persistence of memory can be vital to our survival, at the same time it can leave us haunted by past events we might rather forget. As in surrealist Salvador Dali’s most famous painting, ‘The Persistence of Memory‘, memories can weigh heavily on our minds; thoughts, like ants, scurrying: endlessly searching for who knows what.”
