[1 of 1] Swedenborg (1688-1772, Sweden): primary subject "Memory" (search under Inner Life/Mind, Psyche, Soul, Spirit)": source "Spiritual Experiences, vol.2": detail "Section 2154"
There is an inward memory of such a nature that all and the least details are written on it that a person has done, spoken or thought, and a more inward memory, which could better be called the character. Even the minutest components of ideas are there. So there is not the least thing that a person has thought from earliest childhood to the last moment of life that is not as it were written down on it and preserved. A person on earth may hardly be able to believe this, being acquainted only with the bodily memory.
