Im pretty sure it was Arthur C. Clarke who said that the human brain is about 4 terra bytes large.


Does anyone have any information on this topic

not familiar with Arthur C. Clarke, but i doubt anyone can say how "large" our memory is.........  as no one has completely filled their brain!

I see you've never taken Organic Chemistry... tongue.gif eek, that'll fill up pretty much anyones brain...

I don't know if you really could measure a human mind's storage in digital terms. I think the beauty of the human mind is the fuzzy logic that can be used to associate completely different items. I think that there are going to have to be some huge leaps forward in technology before computers can come close to working in the same fashion as human brains do.

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

Some human brains contain more information than others tongue.gif

Would Steven Hawkings brain take up the same space as Zak Dingle? I doubt it
