Writing: a form of memory, supplemental to the brain, hypomnesis. The fleeting moments in life, the pictures, the songs, and the ideas all come here for repositing. This is a place for things I'll forget, a place for these things to be internalized temporarily, posited outside of my own memory, meant as only fleeting, external diversions.

All sorts of things in this world behave like mirrors.

—Jacques Lacan, Seminar II
