You see, without resonance nothing happens.
If there are no echoes you can’t hear anything.
And that’s why we are all so fascinated with recording things,
writing things down,
and, above all, remembering.
It’s a form of resonance.
Because, you see,
if you don’t remember anything you don’t know you’re there.
A person who had total amnesia,
and lived in a split-second only,
wouldn’t know he was there.
to know that you’re there you need an echo.
– Alan Watts
