I just discovered some old scene files on my hard disk that looked 
unfamiliar to me.  I looked at the rendered images, and it was 
immediately obvious that they were working models of a shape I intended 
to incorporate into a larger project.  But I still couldn't recall 
creating those particular scenes.

My next step was to look at the file dates, and it all became clear. 
They were from early 2011, shortly after ECT treatments.  No wonder I 
don't remember them!  It's freaky, though, how I could have been lucid 
enough to create heavily math-intensive POV-Ray scenes (they involved 
converting isosurfaces into polynomials), and have no memory of them later.

Frustrating ain't it. I always run into the other situation where I know I did
the  math for something but can't find it anywhere.
Have Fun!

My dad (who had some form of memory loss - they thought Alzheimer's, but 
after he passed away, they were able to do a test that showed that that 
wasn't what it was) always said "memory's the second thing to go."

He was never able to recall the first - at least, that was the joke. :)

Memories are strange things.  I can remember weird details from my youth 
that were inconsequential - my employee number at the store I worked at 
when I was a teenager, for example - burned into my brain for some reason.

But I was trying to think of the name of a TV programme earlier today, 
and it was just gone.  I had to look it up.  If I hadn't, it would have 
bothered me all night.
