transition to attentive recognition

…” Also a memory, but a memory profoundly different from the first, always bent upon action, seated in the present and looking only to the future.

In truth, it no longer represents our past to us, it acts it ; and if it still deserves the name of memory, it is not because it conserves bygone images, but because it prolongs their useful effect into the present moment….”
