Externalism – my interpretation and understanding

I like the idea of externalism, consciousness that is derived from things you encounter in the world throughout your life. I agree with this idea because your memory stores your experiences of which your conscious mind refers to when making decisions, therefore the outside world interprets how you consciously act upon events in your life. This could also mean that your conscious mind will forever grow and change and adapt because you will forever encounter new situations and therefore have to create new processes of the mind.
