As individuals, over lifetimes, there is much that we never know, and of what we do know, much that we forget. As societies this also holds, as Eduardo Galeano’s writings remind us. And for both individuals and societies, there are detectable patterns to what is remembered, what is forgotten. These patterns draw themselves via relationships over time between discernable parts that make up vaguely discernable wholes. These patterns can be explored at various scales; indeed, are most often explored at the cognitive and individual levels.
