My brain now thinks of it as a real event, but I also know that memories are fragile and malleable. I also sometimes suffer from visual migraines that can cause very odd visual distortions. This very well could have been the first occurrence of that I remember. Who knows?
My late father reported to us that on the night his mother passed and before he got the call, he was laying in bed staring at the ceiling when something passed overhead. It was later when he got the call that his mother had passed. I firmly believe what he said as he was never one prone to flights of fancy. Alas, I saw nothing when my parents passed.

I have several very earlier memories that have stuck with me all these years. I guess I've lead a pretty boring life in that they have not been pushed down by more recent memories.
In my case it has been a boring life, but by my choice early in life. I picked a path and have stuck with it. Whether that was wise or very shortsighted is open for debate.James Y wrote: ↑Wed Jan 12, 2022 10:51 am
It doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve led a boring life. Perhaps you simply have a good memory, especially for things that might have stood out from the norm?
I have a good memory, especially for time periods and events. I used to think that everyone could remember things in the same way, but some (many) people have poor memories. A LEO friend of mine told me he can’t remember anything before the age of 8, and it had nothing to do with any physical or emotional trauma. He said, “earlier than that is just too long ago.” He’s only a year older than I am, and his memory for most things seems fine.

My memory is not considered good as I can rarely remember important things, but some trivial things imprint deeply.
