By Heart

I believe knowledge preservation should be planned based upon the old mechanisms. Learn by heart, tell your children, let your children or grandchildren write it down when paper is reinvented or our friends arrive. Be selective. Of all the so-called knowledge we are exposed to every day, what is real knowledge, and what is everyday soap? Should we prioritize modern arts and rock music over history? The human brain is the best storage device ever invented. True, it may be slow, and limited in raw capacity. However, associations, the broad picture, interpretations etc. can only be stored in the human brain. Computers have no clue. Once you start training your brain, it is absolutely incredible what it can store. Learn to fetch by association instead of storing facts only.
