its fucked up how you just remember everything when you're a kid because you haven't heard anything before, so you just remember shit even if it isn't relevant. like you keep thinking of completely incidental shit that someone said once when you were 10, and you could even repeat it verbatim despite it having no relevance to anything, but you cant fuckin remember anything that happened 2 weeks ago

@prophet_goddess wtf i had this exact experience, i was probably 3-4. i was with my dad walking along in a park near a playground, and it was a sunny day, and i looked up and a small aircraft (like a cessna or something) flew over us, and i sat down on the path, it felt warm underneath me, and i suddenly thought "later today, when i get home, i will remember this exact moment..." and then i thought "and if i remember it then, i will probably remember it for the rest of my life"
@prophet_goddess tfw ur treasured childhood memory is immortalized online with the accidental content warning "4chan screenshot"
@jk @prophet_goddess something that was really weird was when my parents gave me a hard drive full of scans of the hundreds of family photos they took over four decades and there was a photo of the living room in their house which was built when I was just born and a new sofa put in within 2-3 years but I immediately, distinctly remembered climbing on that sofa and burying my face in the cushions
Just that one moment, just from a photo of the fuckin thing
@theoutrider @prophet_goddess its fucked up, i think its a bit like when you take a camera with you somewhere, and you initially start taking pictures at an extremely high quality setting, and then you realise it's using up all the space on the card so you end up reducing the quality, but the first few pictures you took are in ridiculous immersive levels of detail
I mean, yes but unironically.
Children are learning machines. they have to be. In year one tha have to learn how to eat, how to roll over, how to crawl, who will feed them, how to get attention without getting shaken to death, facial expression, voice tones, cause and effect, object recognition, object permanence... just an absolute insane amount of stuff.
