At least three people alive today were born without the capacity for autobiographical memory.
Their narrative did not vanish; it was never written.
Memories of factual information remain intact.
Gary Weber posted an amazing piece on his blog HAPPINESS BEYOND THOUGHT.
Here, it felt like it took “work” and “time” to break free of the autobiographical self.
These three folks live free through some natural grace, some brain difference.
How deeply fortunate, living unencumbered by a past, unafraid of the future.
