Odors

Childhood memories would govern our conscious lives? Certainly. But why can’t we also understand these memories in terms of ‘odor’? For it is odor that can evoke the past in such a direct manner that no other ‘medium’ can: not words, not sounds, not even images. An odor engrains our entire being; it instills in us something on both the physical and the mental plane. The flip-side of this inclusiveness is that it is less clear what an odor is saying. What does an odor mean, other than that its takes our mind back to ‘another time’ in a rather direct manner?
