I thought this would be interesting to pass on. Imagine the possibilities with this memory?

It links to an Yahoo News ABC News clip, I am not sure how Yahoo does their links, their main link is below, but I also copied the direct link in case in the future one changes.

I'm not sure that's even possible. Harry Lorayne could probably offer some insight to this. If you watched the video, he said it was about associations. He also commited on blanks. You never have a blank in life. Still it is impressive, much like Ken Jennings on Jeopardy.
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

That's neat. I'd like to perform RGM on him.
It occured to me at once that love could be a great illusion, that makes fools of brilliant thinkers everyday

Thanks for the link!
People with these abilities are a glimpse into what the future might hold in stock for mankind. Unless global warming, bird flu or another inconvenience gets us first.

A guy by the name of Kim Peek also has an extremely incredible memory:

Unfortunately it costs him a bit of functionality.

He also inspired a nice movie called "The Rain Man".

My computer won't let me view the above, but I believe it's pertaining to Brad Williams. He and his brother, Eric, were at my home/office just yesterday. Eric is doing a documentary, etc., and they interviewed/photographed me for two hours. Whether or not it will ever be seen is a moot question. HARRY LORAYNE.

There is another guy in the UK Daniel Tammet, very much like Kim (Rainman)but without the visible disability. Daniel can also describe what he see's inside his head unlike other Savants before him. Brad Williams seems different again! Excellent, and thanks for showing the link.

So if this guy doesn't have a gift for his wife on their anniversary -- he's REALLY in hot water!

I don't want all of the memories either.

Scientology teaches one how to eliminate one's painful/embarassing memories. Referred to as "engrams".

A really cool film is "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind".

In this movie Jim Carrey pays to have his painful relationship memories erased from his mind. He then spends the rest of the movie trying to get them back.

It's enchanting in a very sad but powerful way.
