Memory/Chalmers: without a causal connection we would have no memories of our experiences. But the causal theory of memory is not carved in stone.
Remembered experiences: here the causal relation should lie on the psychological (cognitive) level.
Beliefs: are there causal relations between memories of beliefs? If direct acquaintance with the experience is sufficient that belief counts as knowledge, then the later belief can count as a memory (of the experience).
