How we save information..

I just reread a book that I haven’t read since middle school. Interestingly, I didn’t remember any of the literal writing, but I remembered all of the story. This really makes me wonder how we store information internally, since obviously it’s not that connected to language.

    Try the readings on for size. They may make your head hurt, though.

    I believe it may be related to images or ideas. I’ve noticed it quite a few times myself.

    I would not say that language is not a part of the storage of information in that we have to have language to gain information from written format. However, a good reader makes a movie as he/she reads (and thus is often disappointed when a movie of the book comes out but does not match the image the reader had). A good book evokes emotions which help in the storage/recalling of a story. Scents and sounds may be part of the image in the readers head.
