First of all the memory of a red strawberry is not the same as looking at
at red strawberry, the mind can distinguish between the two experiences and
it's a good thing too, otherwise when you saw red you'd have no way of
knowing if it was because of something you were seeing now or if it came
from something you saw a year ago. And if you want to research the redness
quilia you can't pretend that it is the only qualia that exists, red is
only red because of the way it contrasts with other color qualia.
