Your Memory is Not all That Good

Kark Kapp, Kapp Notes, Jan 25, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Totally worth noting: "Brain research is pretty clear on this point. Bona fide recorded memory is a very rare thing on this planet. The reason is that the brain isn't interested in reality: it's interested in survival. So it will change the perception of reality to stay in survival mode. Unfortunately, many people still believe that brain is a lot like a recording device–that learning something is like pushing the 'record' button and remembering is simply pushing 'playback.' in the real world of the brain, however, that metaphor is an anachronism."
