Hi Joe, a little bit late.....
Anyway, yes you can remerber your birthday, but at the moment you
think about it, something has induced it...it could be anything, moreover
But on the other hand, do you tell your birthday to anyone !?
Do you go out on the streets, holding up people and telling them the
day you were born !? Why !? There is apperantly no reason, but
in many cases, like street- animation is one, it could be part of an
art- form, physical theatre.
I am not convinced that the day I was born is cognitively ' held '
inside my brain, as such...as an information- entity.
Something induced the info to come forward...but what do you
remerber exactly !? Just a date, a few numbers, a year combined
in a specific meaning, some special gifts...and the more you think
about it, the more you ' ll " remerber ", but is the kind of info held
inside your head as such or is it induced by the environment, by
context, by feeling or emotion !?
In Wade 's scheme, the fact along you remerber your birthday
means somewhere, someone did, said,...or whatever something,
a word, a phonecall has been made, a card has been giving to
you, someone you work with has celerated his/ hers birthday
yesterday or will be tomorrow,....there are thousands perfor-
mances which can induce the fact that you remerber yours.
