To. 3. "limits our memory?"
Text of the interview with Prof. Paul Glees, in which he plays above these to the discussion (interview):-"I have the knowledge won, that memory in contrast to older ideas is limited. Carrier of memory is that the human brain weighs about 1 1/2 pounds, consists of symmetrical halves that are connected to the exchange of information. The total number of nerve cells, making the brain is estimated to be about 6 - 10 billion. These nerve cells, microscopically small. are the building blocks of our memory. I believe these nerve cells are comparing tapes, on which sense impressions are recorded. In this way, the memory is created in our nerve cells. The safe inside on a past event is therefore only a playback of this brain tape.
It now, that the number of nerve cells is limited, I agree that also our memory is limited. The accumulation of memory happens in early childhood: it then gradually increases in school. Many children goes so far that the capacity is already essentially exhausted. We need to restrict so rote of things at school, which we refer to as well as from books. On the other hand, we know only one hand to the writing hand is trained in the school. This has the consequence that only a brain half the full. The school forces us to the righties and the exclusive use of the left brain. "Esterer:"You now see an opportunity to exploit the unused brain better?""
"This should be possible. As a prerequisite you would have for right-handed people the left hand and consult the right hand regularly with left-handers. With this development the relatively unused brain then also an enlargement of our memory would be approaching."
