Two questions which deeply puzzle me ..

Q1: How is information stored?
Q2: How is information retrieved?

Imagine I told you a simple fact: “My name is Jon”

Somehow your brain manages to store that fragment of information.

I then ask you “What is my name?”

Some your brain manages to retrieve that information.

It makes our books and databases and other word-based systems look so childish that I suspect we havn’t even got off base one in ths area of research and development.

    Hey Jon 🙂 Have you seen this? Are you involved with these meditations to bring the world back to its natural 13:20 synchronised time realised by the Mayans for the good of humanity and our mother earth?

    That is one of the arguments against a computer becoming conscious. It goes like this, if you ask a computer if it knows, let’s say, Aunt Marion’s address, it cannot give an answer until it searches it’s memory, and either finds it or not. Whereas if you ask one of her relatives, they can usually tell you yes or no right away. And if it’s yes, then go about “finding” it in their memory. A computer does not know until it searches. As for why this is, and how it works in people, they don’t know. Some scientists will tell you they do, but they are either mistaken or lying. Sorry.
