I’m asking this question because I just recently watched “Revenge of the Sith” with my son and if Padme died giving birth to Luke and Leia, then how can Leia, as an adult woman in ROTJ, remember her mother if she was a baby when she died?
Adults can have good memories stemming back as close to infancy as possible but I studied this in college, and most people have no concept of memory prior to hitting the “age of reason,” which to the average adult, is about 3 years old.
If you CAN remember before you are 3, you have special brain abilities no one else has, or your memories are very vague. Despite the fact that Leia’s memories ARE vague when she describes them to Luke on Endor, she knew more about Padme than she could have known if she only held her for a moment as a baby. So how is this possible?
