Memory is crucially important in everything we do. Without memory we would not know who we are, whom we love, where we come from or even how to do simple tasks like get out of bed, brush our teeth or make tea. This is very clearly shown by the case of Clive Wearing who is unable to keep memories for more than thirty seconds. His diary, for example, consists of multiple entries where he records, time after time, having just woken up.
