Research Shows the Brain Could Not Hold a Lifetime of Memories, Demonstrating That Memories Are Not in the Brain
Consciousness and memory storage are not functions of the brain. The independent findings of American computer science expert Simon Berkovich and Dutch brain researcher Herms Romijn, both reached the same conclusion. It is impossible for the brain to record every thought and life experience due to the immense processing speed required, estimated at 1024 bits per second. Even a simple act like watching an hour of television would overwhelm the brain’s capacity. The brain’s anatomical and functional limitations make it implausible to achieve such processing speeds.
Adding to the complexity, we lose about 1,000 brain cells daily, leading to a substantial reduction in the overall population of brain cells. In this process, approximately 10 million cells are lost, along with a staggering 100 billion cross-linkages. This intricate and dynamic nature of brain cell turnover challenges traditional notions about the permanence of memories stored within the brain.
Hyperthymesia: When People Can Recall Memories from Every Day of Their Lives
Some people, like actress, producer, and author Marilu Henner, have highly superior autobiographical memories. Marilu and at least 10 other identified people can bring into conscious Awareness most of the memories of every day of her life. The ability is called hyperthymesia. It isn’t that they’re stored in a brain. They are accessible from Our Universal Intelligence. People with hyperthymesia are bringing into conscious Awareness the experiences the Universal Intelligence has available to anyone.
The video that follows explains the hyperthymesia phenomenon.
