A number of experimental data are on hand which give us a measure of the delicacy of this latter perception. The problem is that of the smallest difference between two times which we can perceive. The difference is at its minimum when the times themselves are very short. [p. 616] This minimum absolute difference, of course, increases as the times compared grow long. Attempts have been made to ascertain what ratio it bears to the times themselves. According to Fechner’s ‘Psychophysic Law’ it ought always to bear the same ratio.

A certain length of stimulation seems demanded by the inertia of the nerve-substance. Exposed to a shorter influence, its modification fails to ‘set,’ and it retains no effective tendency to fall again into the same form of vibration at which the original feeling was due. This, as I said at the outset, may be the reason why only ‘substantive’ and not ‘transitive’ states of mind are as a rule recollected, at least as independent things. The transitive states pass by too quickly. 2 ANALYSIS OF THE PHENOMENON OF MEMORY Memory proper, or secondary memory as it might be styled, is the knowledge of a former state of mind after it has already once dropped from consciousness; or rather it is the knowledge of an event, or fact, of which meantime we have not been thinking, with the additional consciousness that we have thought or experienced it before.
