With enough photographs acquired through self-observation, we accumulate an awareness of how one is and has been.  We can become more aware of recurrence of behavior, moods, thought patterns, inner states of being and events. We can be more prepared for people and events that otherwise would trigger mechanical reactions.  In a state of Self-remembering, we can visualize an upcoming encounter or recurring pattern and send ahead conscious energy and intention for a Work idea/tool to come and meet us so we can choose and behave differently. With future memory, we use imagination in a creative and generative way to set an aim for ourselves and then visualize ourselves following the path of that aim.  The visualization draws us forth to meet the future.
