Seven Cardinal Notions of the Memory Society

1. The body is the world of pure reality, unlike the mind, which is the world of apparitions.
2. One must only use the body to remember feelings, not sights and sounds, for the latter belong to the world of the mind.
3. When remembering, one must keep the body in motion, for a body which is still cannot remember.
4. The body remembers through repetition: the more one repeats the motions, the more deeply the body remembers.
5. One must not use words to help in the remembering, for words belong to the world of the mind and would not be understood by the body.
6. When connecting, one must listen to the body of the other.
7. One must not ask the body questions, for the body is not the mind and cannot provide answers.
