Check out this 60 Mminutes segment
about people with superior autobiographical memory, who can remember virtually every day of their life.
What really caught my attention and amazed me was the way they can sort, file and recall their memories, that they describe the process as literally being able to see the memories and that they actually still feel the emotions of the memories. It reminded me of the character Dr. Manhattan from The Watchmen and his perception of time
and the idea of holographic memory
, which would enable the storage of a lot of information in a small space, but still retrieved quickly.
