    Don't be modest, you remember before that. In the time before time, the long long ago, when there was just you and me and the other primordials all that velvety darkness and nothing to do but entertain each other.

    And I told you you wouldn't believe me. That's fine, were it not me, I might be skeptical myself.
    I would like to believe you (tho I have to say it's mixed with a little suspicion, I pretty naive so :')), it's only that science says you can't have memories before the age of two.
    Did you ever have a wild trip on some druugz? Heard some stories about people who 'experienced' how it all began.

    a little suspicion is healthy, personally, I never trust any faceless org of philosophers to clue me in on the whole story beyond what they think, be it science or religion, Ive played too long in both playgrounds to not see them as two sides of the same coin. I've had enough brain specialists give me the brain is a mystery we still dont understand to discount my own bittersweet eidetic memory. But like I said, I dont blame anyone for not believing me, it's a mad mad mad mad world and there's no accounting for taste. We're all just characters in someone else's story, some of us are implausible. But implausible characters have always existed in the fiction that is life.

    I will say that believing-not believing is a spectrum and in your case, I am somewhere in the middle? I won't say that it's impossible, just as I won't say that it is possible. If that makes sense. :')

    Perfect sense I think that's my preffered place on the spectrum. The middle is a good place for me.

    Earliest memory is about 8 months old. It’s brief, just a flash of imagery/sensation.

    Was in a high chair, this old metal kind with an ugly yellow & orange paisley pattern vinyl seat. Plastic safety tray. There was a tear on the seat. Uncomfortable beneath my bare thigh, kinda pinchy. Must’ve been in a onesie or a stupid dress.

    My cheeks were wet & hot. I was gumming something slightly sweet, spongey, & very cold. It felt good. I was happy. I could hear my dad talking, nearby.

    I described this to my mom before. Apparently, I was teething, and extremely not happy. My dad used to give me frozen bread when he couldn’t find my teething ring. The high chair had been a handmedown, hence the tear.

    I have a couple other memories of being in a playpen, trying to get out. In one, my mom had
    the stereo on & was singing along. I remember trying to emulate the pretty sounds, but the noises I made came out more like a puppy whine.

    Lot of flashes of 3, 4. More solid/consistent from 5 onward. It’s easy to place the memory/ages since we moved a lot. This age at this place.
