Chapter One: Flesh
The flesh remembers, and it never forgets.
The record of our experiences are pounded into our corporeal form, cell by cell.
Our bodies are a living witness to the events that shape us, handing down that narrative from generation to generation in perpetuity.
We are changed by every new experience, each moment of perception is a new thread sewn into the seams of our identity. These are the fibers of the spindle, they are the engrams of memory, protein by protein they are woven into the fabric of our lives.
Our unique and individual experiences are like a tapestry, sewn with precious metals, embroidered with gem-stones, they are an endowment, a rich heritage passed on to our descendants.
It is their only lasting inheritance.
We experience this in our dreaming, when we are transported to places and times that we know we have never been to, never seen, and yet they are as familiar to us as the contents of our own homes.
We talk with strangers as if they were our dearest friends, and see ourselves reflected in a mirror, but we do not recognize our countenance or visage.
The flesh never forgets, it remembers everything.
