In James Loewen’s book Lies My Teach Told Me he describes two inseparable cultural concepts for chronological memories called Sasha and Zamani, which transcend well beyond the fourth dimension (“Lies My Teacher,” ch.10). Sasha is memories of past events, deceased people, etc. that occurred or coexisted within an individual’s lifetime, which Loewen refers to as the “living dead”. When the last person that has a particular memory from their lifetime passes away, that memory becomes Zamani. When a memory becomes Zamani, no person still alive has a firsthand account of that memory, thus forcing the memory to survive through only what was shared about it.
