    What is your earliest memory?

    I have this developing theory that intelligence is related to creating early memories.

    My earliest memory was a sensation. In thinking and feeling the sensation now, I think my diaper was being changed and the sensation of the baby wipe going between my butt cheeks and legs was very unpleasant. I was in a dark room and there was a short wall to the right of me.

    I have many other early memories - but I am trying to find out why, and what the commonalities are between myself and other early memory bearers.

    1st : My mother moving my arms and legs to make me exercise while saying stuff like whoouuuuuuuhoooouuuuuu (french phonetic)
    2nd : The first time I walked on four legs. My mother dropped me near the wall then she got away from me. Then she was telling me to come to her. I was afraid, that bitch was always going further away from me while I tried to come to her. Bitch! she made me cried :P. 5 years later I did the same exercise to a 1 month old doberman and he cried just like me. The two events are vividly connected in my mind.

    Most memories I have from my childhood are awe or traumatic events, sometimes the two at the same time.

    3 months old: I remember sliding down a giant slide with red, yellow, and blue rollers instead of flat metal like most slides, with bright green foliage whizzing past me on my way down. Parents confirmed that I indeed sat on my dad's lap on such a slide in Okinawa, Japan when I was approx 3 months old.

    I have an exuberant amount of early memories (0-2 years old) and they're all extremely visual. All the ones I can think of right now have no scents, textures, or sounds, only visuals.

    Not the earliest but... when i was younger i had a bird. He was extremely tame and i kept leaving the cage open at night. One day i woke up and i couldnt find him. When i turned around i found him pancaked into the bed. Turns out he flew to me when i was sleeping and i rolled over him.

    I have a very vivid memory of visiting my mother in hospital just hours after she gave
    birth to my sister. I can remember exactly how the room looked, the bed, the crib, and
    everything else. I was 30 months old at the time. This is about 30 years ago.

    Than you must be an alien because human babies develop the capacity for
    long-lasting conscious memory of specific events between 12 and 18 months.

    Just because having young memories is not your experience, do not discount the experiences of those who do. That research is not based on people like me (I also have copious memories from before 12 mos), and cannot be regarded as scientific fact.

    My mind is so different from the average joe that I look like an alien to them.

    That is what I meant. I'm just surprised because in average you're not supposed
    to remember stuff from before 12 months. I did not say it was impossible. I even
    think its very plausible that I can happen to one people in x thousands
