Some day we may be able to build biological computers!
Of course then we will get another group who wants biological computers to be totally organic, hi hi...
A computer stores its information in memory, either rom, ram, or storage device.
What if our brains did not have any type of storage, other than perhaps built in rom memory, which cannot be written to?
Think about our brain this way. Instead of storing in memory, it uses radio waves and transmits each thing we think we are memorizing out into an orbit around itself, or a larger area.
We forget things we don't recall often enough, because like a radio signal, it fades with each orbit. When we recall something, it gets retransmitted, so the signal is fresh again. Sometimes we can fine tune an older memory which was nearly lost, causing it to be recalled and retransmitted again. Traumatic events would be transmitted at a much higher power than what we had for dinner last night or last week or last month. In other words, the transmitting power used is directly related to the importance of the event, or if it had a traumatic affect which caused it to be transmitted at super power.
Since each person would be on their own frequency, if our brains did work this way, it could explain how twins know each others thoughts, or mothers sense things about their children, because their frequencies are so close together, only a little tuning deviation could land you on your twins frequency, or a mother to her child's frequency, or close enough to know when something traumatic is going on.
Some people may be able to drift their receiver frequency more than others, which gives them sort of an ESP which only works with some people, and at random times and intervals. Like when you get crosstalk on your telephones.
Just food for thought!
