anamneses is a recollection of images from Manal Deeb’s past; her soul had known in a previous existence in her homeland, Palestine.

When forced to be away from one’s homeland, that is so dear to the heart, but not in the view anymore, one can still imagine it with an internal language by creating mental symbols for presentation.  Marvelously, the storage system of the brain allows the idea of home to outlive the homeland itself. One will still have the capacity to remember for the simple reason that the brain continues to hold the symbols of the homeland in the matrix of one’s mental neurons. In this sense, the homeland appears to exist, even if it does not.
