Once one has learned to take the role of other, that capacity is not lost (except under the severest pathologies), and so no matter how much the adult "regresses," the recovered "memories" are recovered in an intersubjective and perspectival space, which then instantly and automatically interprets them from that space, and then reads them back into childhood as if they were accurate and indelible photographs of the original occasion, even if children at that age show no evidence whatsoever of being able to do any of this (not to mention present anxieties heavily misinterpreting past imprints as ritual satanic abuse and UFO abductionanother story altogether, and one I will not enter at this point: I am now discussing "recapturing" of "highly spiritual" early "experiences," which are, I claim, not primarily unadulterated past actuals, but mostly reconstituted past actuals).

The imprints, assuming they are there, are run through a highly evolved intersubjective space that can then pull out implications and perspectives that were not present when the imprints were laid down, and this "pulling out" is then mistakenly ascribed in all ways to a recapturing, a recapturing that goes quite beyond past actuals and into a reconstituting of past actuals created by highly sophisticated structures of present consciousness.
