This may be just slightly 'off topic', but to me it has some kind of 'link' -- (else, I wouldn't have thought of it?).
I read a book by this famous author, Oliver Sacks. In his collection of stories was one 'case study' about a man who had almost no short term memory. Those taking care of him in an institution found that the best surroundings for him were allowing him to 'garden', as the passing of time, being measured by the changes in the garden, did not cause him undue disorientation.
This was within the pages of the book entitled, "The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat". Wiki says this: "The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales is a 1985 book by neurologist Oliver Sacks describing the case histories of some of his patients." - jus'
