This is intended as a little exploration of how minds work.

Now, I have what I think to be an exceptionally bad memory. I have a terrible time remembering names and faces, etc.

The "minds eye" part:
The story goes, that some people have photographic memories. Well, so do I, but there's no film.

I ask members - Can you close your eyes, think of something you have seen, and bring up a mental image? Do you have a "photograph in your head"? My understanding is that various people can do this, at least to some degree. I can not. I just have a dark screen.

So, what's in your "minds eye"?
