Decades ago, Robert Heinlein's character Lazarus Long proposed a need to develop a new way of remembering in order to live longer lives without going mad. He suggested that experiences are accumulated in a linear fashion as time progresses, but as the mind assimilates experiences, it also creates creates connections to all other experiences; these connections grow geometrically without limit, quickly using all available resources. As we get older, we first begin to run out of RAM, then later the available disk space begins to diminish and fragment. His brilliant friend Andrew Libby told him that there is a solution, but sadly, Heinlein passed away without writing the book in which Mr. Libby reveals said solution. Perhaps we will never know...
Will Rogers never met me.

Straw Poll

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
