Good example elephant and it's the same with memories: remembering one can lead to remember others, more or less directly related ... Also people all have different memories of the same memory lived together!
Personally I have been thinking for a long time that the brain records everything ... i.e. our whole life ...
After that, it is up to "the mind" to look "in the right boxes" or rather with the right keys for information ... for example the emotional feeling of a memory is a powerful key! We manage to remember a memory much better when we have strong emotions while living it ... Routine is what kills the most the ability to retrieve memories.
Dreams are also a mystery of the brain and memory! Some never remember it, others systematically ... I am rather in the 2nd category.
And for example. It happens to me, for an "unknown" reason, to remember one of my dreams, like that in the middle of the day, years later, whereas I had forgotten it a few minutes after waking up!
I'm not talking about recurring dreams (which I've never had to my knowledge) ... which are much easier to remember of course.

A secret 256-bit bank code is easier to decipher !!
What do the electrical pulses mean, their frequency, their delays, their cadence, etc ... we understand almost nothing, even less how the complex processing is carried out in the brain, images, sounds, etc ... and then awareness is for the next millennium ??
The conclusion of the 1st article of the file goes in this direction right?
But the attitude of this type of hackers faces increasingly difficult challenges. As we have seen with bio, it is not possible to consider DNA as a simple computer program: too complicated, too unforeseen. Likewise, the brain is not a computer in the traditional sense of the term, even though computers were created in the hope of imitating brains. It is therefore necessary for our hypothetical cognhacker to acquire certain basic principles which will serve him in his investigation, and above all, to know where the reflexes he has acquired in his practice of computer science are likely to harm his understanding. It is not necessary for him to acquire an exhaustive knowledge of the subject, but at least to apprehend certain fundamental concepts which we will explore in the next pages of this file.
Okay, I'm going to split because this file is really interesting!
