Memory does not make meanings as our conscious mind would. It has formed weird relationships, according to choices of emotion, instinct, and sensation. Therefore the meanings of memory are – they have to be sensed, not comprehended, to be understood. Understanding is something deeper, quieter and longer-lasting than rational comprehension: when the mind comprehends something it moves on to other matters; when it understands, it forms a lasting connection with a truth, and brings companionship to comfort the loneliness of the adult-child in the picture.
