"The causal connections between events and traces, and between traces and recollection, may be multiple, indirect, and context-dependent. The structures which underpin retention, then, need not remain the same over time, or might not always involve identifiable determinate forms over time.
This more dynamic vision of traces, rejecting the idea of permanent storage of independent items, may satisfy both recent developments in cognitive science and some of the positive suggestions with which critics of static traces have accompanied their objections. (...) Wittgenstein had wondered “whether the things stored up may not constantly change their nature”
