I didn't know where or how to start describing MJ to him. He kept looking at me waiting for an answer. I told him that MJ was part of me and almost everybody else during our teens. All my friends grew up listening to him.

That night I logged on Youtube and watched Michael Jackson's music video- 'who is it', one of my favorites. Something strange happened.

Do we mentally teleport back in time or is it just some memories rearing its head again? The answer is not an easy one if you consider the fact that according to latest science, Time and reality is very likely a mental illusion akin to a dream. At the very basic level of reality, Time ceases to exist. Moreover, neurologists have been unable to find where the actual memories are stored in the brain. The brain merely seems to act like a bridge between the mind and the body.
This is not so absurd as it sounds if you consider that some people have such an amazing photographic memory, that it boggles the mind. You tell them any sentence of a book they might have read in their childhood and they can tell you on which page it is!! ...( see links below ). Current medical science fails to explain such phenomena. Moreover, scientists have recently been astonished to find that a simple plant utilises quantum entanglement ( a state where everything is connected and there is no such thing as 'time' ) to distribute energy generated from sunlight throughout its body. Hmm.. if a simple plant can do such a trick , why not us? To me, it seems logical when you consider that if nature gave us the illusion of time, then surely the easiest way to remember is to remove the illusion of time rather than create a computer mechanism for storing and retrieving memories. It just sounds a whole lot simpler.

A question can be asked... what use is this knowledge of Time to me..Well.. for one..... I know Michael Jackson is not dead for me. He lives on in my mind......
