When you glance at a very bright light, its impression is briefly burned into your retina. It floats around your vision a little longer than expected and interferes with everything in view. The residual shape and color of the light gradually morphs and fades; yet it continues to resemble the original instant of the glance. The moment it finally vanishes is never quite noticeable, not unlike the traces our sensory perceptions insert into memory. Our five senses (vision, hearing, smell, touch and taste) provide us with “after-images” of experiences, that which resonate and haunt.
