Keeping the past alive also means preserving memories. There are various ways in which memories can be preserved. Earlier people would maintain a diary to keep happenings recorded. Some would also safely preserve letters/ souvenirs/gifts that they received from others. As time changed and technology got largely involved into human life, people these days make videos or take photographs to capture moments.
Humans have a sharp ability to keep happenings recorded in memory. This enables them to constantly go back to any event in the past and recall it. Also, sometimes we humans tend to day-dream.

It is advisable to use this power properly so that better future can be built.
