Hi, Has anyone ever wondered this? Everyone has had information in one way or another that they have forgotten, and never remembered. Sometimes a person doesn't even remember that he/she ever had the information to begin with. Sometimes a person, when being reminded by either by something someone else says, or seeing something, will suddenly remember a thought, a lesson, whatever. Why does that particular thing another person just said, or that picture or song suddenly bring it back? BTW, I hope you know what I mean when I say "information". I mean anything and everything that you have ever done, said, learned in school, studied about for a test, been told by another, every joke you have heard, every TV show you have watched, every book you have read, etc.... get the idea? O.K., so my question is: obviously we don't remember all or even most of those things. But why? Where does the information go when it is no longer useful and we forgert. Or sometimes, it will be useful at a later date, when we ought to be able to draw on it. Does it just go out through your ears or something? I doubt it. I wonder if it stayes stored forever somewhere in the 90% part of the brain which is said to be not curently used by humans. Maybe it is being used, as a giant storage area. With tons of files, current, archives, filed by date? subject? importance? It was a wierd thought that I had been wondereing about. Anyone else have any ideas on the subject?
