A Woman Who Remembers Everything
A woman in New York City who remembers everything:
Owen described her computer-like recall, explaining that she visualizes a page in a calendar before getting down to the actual memory.
“For me, I will often see a calendar in my head, and it’s usually a month at a time,” she said.
“When I hear the date, it’s like my brain immediately goes to a position on a calendar and once I locate it, I see what happened instantly.”
Owen’s mind seamlessly hops from era to era, year to year without a hitch.
“I usually describe it as time travel. As soon as you say that date, I’m instantly there,” she said. “I know how I felt, I know what happened that day. It’s as if it happened five minutes ago, as opposed to 22 years ago.”
She will be featured on 60 Minutes this Sunday.
