It is often said that we are our memories — that web of experiences, relationships,
thoughts, and feelings that make us who we are. We don’t remember it all of
course. That would be impossible. Or would it?

There has been a discovery in the field of memory recently, so new you won’t find
it in any textbook. It’s so hard to fathom, there are some who remain unconvinced.

For the moment, the scientists studying it are simply calling it “superior
autobiographical memory.” And unless you happen to know one of the handful of
people discovered so far who have it, get ready to be amazed.

Louise Owen is 37 years old and a professional violinist living in New York City.
But she has another gift too, one that is far more rare.

When correspondent Lesley Stahl mentioned a date, Jan. 2, 1990, Owen told her,
“Right now, I’m remembering the jogging class that I started that morning.”

“And you’re actually back there?” Stahl asked.

“I can feel it. I can remember the coach saying, ‘Keep going,’” Owen remembered.

That was more than 20 years ago, when she was 16, a date Stahl picked
completely at random.

Stahl randomly picked another date, Feb. 18, 1988.

“It was a Thursday. I had a big conversation with a friend of mine, and that’s all I’m
gonna say,” Owen replied.

Owen told Stahl she can remember every day of her life since the age of 11.

“Try to talk us through, can you do that, how…it works? Out of the air, April 21st,
1991,” Stahl asked.

“1991, okay. April 21st. So, in the moment between ‘April 21st’ and ’1991,’ I have
scrolled through 25 April 21sts, thinking, ‘Which one is it going to be? Which one
is it going to be?’ Okay, 1991, which was a Sunday. And I was in Los Angeles, and
I had a concert with the American Youth Symphony,” Owen replied................

The Gift of Endless Memory
Colin Andrews - Thoughts:  

Do these individuals remember as much from sub-conscious memories like dreams?

Isnt this an opportunity to test/experiment with remote viewing and also regression? Hone in on
an event which one of these people can remember which involves a person who cant.  
Regress that person back to that event and check out details given against the super memory.
Similarly remote view through the eyes of the good and bad memory that specific event..
Seems to me we have lots we can learn here.
