Your brain as mass storage.

So if we only use, what – 10% of our actual brain for living, what else is it for? I like to think that it’s like a big, mushy hard drive, and that all the myriad moments of my life are etched in there, somewhere. Then I like to think that at some point in the future, brain-computer-interface advancements will reach a point where we can actively tap into those furthest reaches of our conscious and sub-conscious mind, to see all those moments again.

I know this is kind of a “pandora’s box” desire, but I’m willing to suffer it. After all, I lived through the stuff once, I can stomach it a second time, right? Perhaps with the distance life’s afforded me from those moments, I can gain a new perspective on them. And just think how awesome it would be to re-live – or even just re-watch – some of the greatest things your life has shown you.

I swear to God, if this happens, I’m going to be ecstatic. Please, PLEASE, science. Make it so.

Oh, and if anyone is going to leave a comment dashing my hopes, be gentle.
