I have this property of mind where memories of every event which is slightly more important than everyday routine gets linked with apparently anything that's existing or happening at that time and place.
For example talking about something important with someone while watching television would link that memory with whatever show was on tv and get recalled involuntarily every time the same show is watched.
Doing an action with a particular feeling in mind like fear , happiness , hate or hopelessness would tie that action with that feeling and the action would always trigger that feeling again.
The inverse is true as well like begin extremely happy suddenly reminds you of a particular person or event
Similar connections with feelings and memories can be formed with a lot of things like smell , weather, temperature and even colour.
Is this quite common ? and is this recognised in cognitive sciences ? because I'm yet to meet someone with similar experiences.
