Thinking out loud here, but um what is the purpose of memory?
This is a tough concept to consider because, I think anyways, that we rely on memories (visual/emotional movie scenes) to fall back on and remind ourselves of "I am, I did".

I'm good enough because I did this back then, or I suck because I failed at that when I was 16...

But why do we hold onto to these "images" of experience?
Are we afraid that there won't be any more images?
Or are we in a situation that is uncomfortable and unknown to us so we reach back for something that is comfortable and known to cope with the present?

This can be viewed as a negative system.
Bound by memory.

But if you are to be bound, then flip it.
Build your own chains.

What makes the "un-see"able thus? Why does it stick around?

There is no way to "un-see" something once you have seen it. Yes maybe you can force it to the back of your head but it is still there lurking in the shadows. 

You can't learn anything if you don't have a mechanism to remember it.
