    The Power of Memory vs Written Language

    “They have refused a written language because to them that gives away the power of memory. If you practice and demand recall, you retain optimum level performance....”

    “For instance, one child saw another playing with some toys—a rock perhaps being pulled by a string—if that child went to take the other’s toy, immediately he would feel all the adults eyes turned his way. He would learn that his intent of taking without permission was known and not acceptable. The second child would also learn to share, to learn nonattachment to objects. That child had already enjoyed and stored the memory of fun, so it is the emotion of happiness that is desired, not the object.”

    Source: Mutant Message Down Under by Marlo Morgan. The book describes her experiences with a remote tribe of nomadic Aboriginals. They share with her the wisdom of their 50,000-year-old culture which has been completely unchanged by the white people who came to Australia. Pg. 57
