“…my memory sees the object as if it were before my eyes; such is the impotence of words and the power of memory over material things!”
(Chateaubriand, Mémoires d’Outre-tombe, 1809–1841, p. 43)
For any organism, brain neurons are the most highly developed cells in the body. They connect the spirit and the physical body, an important job. To see how they do this, let’s look at how those Neurons help us form a memory.
Imagine it’s a bright morning, as you look out over the sea, the bright sunlight reflects off the waves, hitting the retina in the back of your eye. When that happens, the optic nerve generates signals, called an ionic code, which is transmitted to the brain neurons. Neurons transform that code, which then creates new electron links on the DNA molecules. These electron links change the structure of the DNA molecule very slightly.
DNA/RNA molecules, with their huge molecular weight, have a spiral configuration. The spiral form means that every atom contained in the molecular structure exerts a powerful impact on the microspace of the spiral’s inner volume. This impact can be great enough to break down the barrier between the physical and etheric levels. During this process, disintegration of the DNA/RNA molecules does not occur. Only the molecules trapped inside the spiral’s tunnels disintegrate.
Because of this, they create, at the etheric level, an exact copy of the above structures from G matter. The ionic code transmitted onto those DNA molecules then forms an imprint of itself at the etheric level.
The “life span” of the etheric imprint determines the duration of the short-term memory. The more it is reinforced, the longer it will last. Stresses, strong impressions and multiple repetitions of the same external stimulus ensure the formation of an imprint on the astral level. The duration of an external signal’s astral imprint is virtually unlimited. Etheric and astral imprints of the external signal together constitute the system of long-term memory.
