There is a kind of memory in Universe. Each kind of living thing (and may be of all things, even stones) has a collective memory. So, take a squirrel living in a forest now. That squirrel is personification and is being influenced by all past squirrels. People and squirrels are not very different for that matter, in fact they are very similar, they act, think and behave without any difference. I look at a squirrel and I feel lonely and solitary, when I see it is lonely and solitary. But when I get a nice red apple, I’m happy as a squirrel who found a nice red apple.
