On Memory-Time vs. Space-Time

I came to the idea of Memory-Time when reading about Samuel Alexander’s Space-Time (see also Memory Creates God). Here Memory plays the same foundational part as Space with memory-instants paralleling point-instants. I recently found the notion of memory-time (small capitals) appearing in Wittgenstein lectures as cited in Jaakko Hintikka’s paper “Wittgenstein on being and time”. However, it is considered there from the phenomenological subject-based perspective with a role of memory in the creation of time and external world and was only present in the earlier Tractatus-based Wittgenstein’s worldview.
