Immortality. Where to Put all those Accumulating Memories?

images

Let’s imagine (or scroll forward if you think it definitely will happen) we manage to cure ageing, both in the body and in the mind. We have immortality. Nice. But how would we be able to cope with the infinitely accumulating number of memories and things to remember?

Memory is a funny old thing. We do get more forgetful as we get older. Yet we still have retained and lodged forever in our memory certain events, numbers, faces, facts and triggers.  Even though brain cells die at a quicker rate as we get older, we must assume that immortality will include the ability for the brain to regenerate itself. So our capacity to think is unimpaired because our brains will remain functioning.

But what of memory? Research indicates that there is a certain part of the brain where memories reside. But it is of a finite size. As more and more experiences and memories are accumulated throughout the centuries and aeons of our immortality, that part of the brain will just become clogged and full and unable to absorb any more information. It would also be difficult if not impossible  to recall information because there are so many full rooms,corridors and halls all full of filing cabinets, full of folders, full of papers.

Your brain can keep all that stuff organized for a while (say, the span of most of a normal human lifetime) but it’s not like you can go into your brain and just delete files like cleaning up a hard drive of a computer.

Your immortal life and experiences may be infinite, but your brain’s ability to store and recall them is not. After a relatively short time into your immortality, as early as 300 years old,  your brain will be chock-a-block piled up with information/junk like one of the habitual hoarders who can never clean up or throw anything out.

The only possible solution would appear to be to connect to technology that could store, sort and recall all that information- and perhaps delete it to. “Total Recall” anyone?  So perhaps at 30o years old plus you’ll be permanently wired in to a data/memory dump/recall system.  But your biological brain’s ability to process the information and retain it, would not be expanded once it has received the input from the memory card or whatever.  And of course you might forget that you have stored the information remotely and so the whole system falls down again!

Immortality? Not as easy as it sounds!

  1. Everyone knows the brain is capable of far more than what we utilise. I believe that the electro in our brain is similar to that of a computer. I have a filing system, when my mind becomes cluttered I store it away in catagories. I have one file that stores all the information that I do not want think about in it, as long as I close it correctly they do not seep into my conscious mind.

    However I did try deleting memories with tragic consequences as it affected my mental state and I know I experienced things but cannot recall them. It took a lot of practise to master but it can be done. It’s just unfortunate that society shuns liberation as being a mental barrier aa this attitude could be hindering the progession of noetics but what do I know, it’s just merely my opinion.

  3. Boonton Poemless,Well, being an average geiohaprgcally challenged American it took a little while for me to get a map out. MDS in Poland is not exactly coherent if you’re talking about Iran as the threat. Georgia, Turkey, Moldavia, and the Ukraine make more sense. A MDS in place in those countries might served to protect all of Europe from an attack, and not just the host country. The benefit to a country of a missile defense system goes beyond the actual defense, but includes economic benefits which accompany putting in a high tech base in your neighborhood.Now, seeing that one of the two parties cites as being stiffed by this move by Obama was the Ukraine and both of you pointedly note only Poland in your discussion leaves me suspicious. My criticism however, was that Mr Obama’s foreign policy doesn’t make sense (at least to me). He acts coldly to the UK, Israel, and other allies and makes weak overtures to those states which are hostile, which has been weak enough to be more likely to actually increase their hostility and aggressiveness. On the face of it this seems an overall strategy to enforce some sort of back-door isolationist policy.

  4. Alright, I give up.I’m a leftist (and by left I don’t mean mantriseam Democrat but more of a, let’s say, Communist) and an atheist. I write about Russia and politics and lurid things. And you keep linking to my blog! Thank you! Seriously, one of my best friends in the universe is a strongly Evangelical Christian (and maybe this is how you found my blog?) But I’m perplexed. Why?Well, I hope this means you’re enjoying it anyway.

  5. Boonton,So is this explanation post hoc spin? Or if not, why was none of this minetoned in the initial announcement. And, btw, in what waters is the DMS to be deployed prior to installations in Central and Eastern Europe (and if Central/Eastern Europe isn’t that exactly the Ukraine as was noted in the prior announcement or does he have designs on Moldavia and Georgia which will likely tickle the Russians pink).

  9. First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Appreciate it!|掲示板}

  10. a) You give yourself minenag, it doesn’t come from me. b)I don’t require your adoration at all. I gave you free will, why would I do that if I required adoration? c) you are not a slave, even if you adore me. Free will- it is a bitch.Don’t confuse me with your organized religions. It’s a common mistake made by atheists. Luv you guys! <3
