Memory Is Basis Of Everything. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Memory is basis of everything.
Memory encodes, stores and retrieves.
Memory stores one's past; all have their past.
Memory makes individuals unique.

Memory acts from chemical, physical,
Biological and psychological
In humans and make a past for each one
That makes men different from one another.

Each one behaves, influenced by the past,
Which is stored in memory to decode.
Two identical men react differently
To a given situation at a time.

Particles too have memory of the path
They have travelled and the interaction
They have under gone. The path memory
Influences the particles in their move.

Two electrons that are identical
In all known physical properties
Need not react to an experiment
The same way due to their path memories.

There is memory for each organism,
Each organ, each tissue and each cell
With its nucleus, chromosome and atoms.
No one can be free of its past and path.
