the effect of living backwards

Squarepusher - Port Rhombus from Tom Wade

"Its jam every other day. Today isn’t any other day, you know", said the Queen.

"I don’t understand you," said Alice. "Its dreadfully confusing!"

"That’s the effect of living backwards," the Queen said kindly.
"It always makes one a little giddy at first … "

"Living backwards!" Alice repeated in astonishment.
"I never heard of such a thing!"

"But there’s one great advantage in it … that one’s memory works both ways", said the Queen.

"I’m sure mine only works one way. I can’t remember things before they happen", remarked Alice.

"It’s a poor sort of memory that only works backwards," the Queen remarked.

{Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll}
