The preverbal experiences you talk about are an example of primary process, which includes everything from nonverbal emotions to dreams to psychosis. It is all the internal psychic experiences that don't procede in a logical, verbal, sequential, structured way. It is normal for all of us to have both primary and secondary process, but, hopefully, as we develop from infancy our primary process is mediated or organized by our developing secondary process. There can be a lot of feelings and experiences that are "remembered" in an emotional sense, but before the part of the brain that records specific logical memories develops, we can't really figure out what it that "caused" the emotional "memories". THere is a good article on this in the most recent issue of FAMILY THERAPY NETWORKER magazine.
