Do you think it's impossible to remember you own birth?

Remembering your actually birth... I don't think I'd want to remember.

i would say it would be impossible since that would be a very traumatic period in ones life, wouldnt it be natural to block it ?

Impossible for me cuz I dont remember a thing.

Seriously doubt it, besides that would suck. At a young age the brain isn't fully developed and it can't remember full memories. Some of your oldest memories might not even be true. Most of the time their dreams that you dreamed about and passed on as a memory. But that's just a theory and I ain't no doctor.

I never actually remembered my birth.. rather it seemed like a soul entered a body. I kinda woke up one morning
and I realize that I'm just kinda 'there'.

I can't remember anything that happened before that day; it's as if my memory was erased entirely.

I remember the first time I became conscious of my memory. I was like 1.5 years old but it's only the memory of that feeling and seeing my bedroom ceiling.

I clearly remember a couple of things from when I was 1-2 years old. I think I might vaguely remember being born but the problem is that I can't really distinguish it from something I just made up.

The reason you can't really remember being born is that when you're born your mind lacks internal symbols for things because you literally haven't experienced anything yet. Lacking symbols, it can't efficiently encode memories.

About the only things that I can remember are a vague impression of light, some noise that might have been me crying, some voices, and maybe my mother's voice. These are things that a newborn's mind might have symbols for, but that's about it.

Newborns also experience things in a totally phenomenological manner, that is as pure sensory experience. In addition to having few or no symbols they also have no sense of there being objects underlying phenomena. In fact, until they're a certain age (I can't remember when, read Piaget) they can't even distinguish the fact that their own body is part of "them" as opposed to some other object in the world. Everything is just a mass of sensory phenomena with few inferences about what things are causing the phenomena.
