They are indistinguishable from the real, objectively (*confirmable* even) way I have of remembering things I *did* live.

The professor in the movie the beautiful mind, noticed that the girl he was seeing, was not aging?

I do not think the professor ever completely stopped seeing the girl who was not aging?

But I wondered if the professors' self-awareness partly helped?
