Chapter Three: Remembering
Kathy’s memories came to her unbidden.
They populated her consciousness, suggesting themselves for her consideration, in order to frame her understanding of the events she was experiencing in real time.
She experienced a dialog with the ancestors within her, deciphering events, answering questions in an instant.
It was an atavistic process, happening faster than light speed, happening in no-time.
She was particularly susceptible to sensory input.
When she encountered a new feeling or texture, smelled or tasted something she had not experienced before, saw or heard something that had been unknown to her, the forces within her brought to her mind everything she would ever need to know about it.
She was prone to getting lost in the faces of people she met for the first time, and learning their names.
The wheels within her would turn, and turn over everything her long memory had to give her regarding all of the times she had encountered a person with those eyes, with that nose, with that name, or that tone in their voice.
This was always augmented by input from the psychic entities, ghosts and spirits that hovered around her.
Her ancestors, all of the departed dead, the collective consciousness of humanity, both past and present. She was in constant dialog with them.
