Transactive memory is part of what intimacy means. In fact, Wegner argues, it is the loss of this kind of joint memory that helps to make divorce so painful. "Divorced people who suffer depression and complain of cognitive dysfunction may be expressing the loss of their external memory systems", he writes. "They once were able to discuss their experiences to reach a shared understanding... They once could count on this access to a wide range of storage in their partner, and this, too, is gone... The loss of transactive memory feels like losing a part of one's own mind".


Reasoning, lost at first sight

Breath, grasping for a sense of peace

Ears, receptive to any sound vibration

Touch, heavenly reminder of warmth

Mind, overthinking and articulating

Thoughts, not finding their usual pathways

Feelings, screaming softly like windshield wipers

Eyes, lubricated and spongy

Words, trying to penetrate their way out through my glued lips

Destiny, working in mysterious ways

Eclipse, surrendering to a familiar emptiness


The ultimate warrior medicine

Kambo can be considered the ultimate warrior medicine.
