"Earth as a Simulation Series 4: This Series offers MANY pages of Evidence that many Anomalous Experiences, Plus 'Exceptional' Abilities & Skills can be explained 'IF' we are Simulated copied people being Simulated with Less Advanced Technologies resulting in ourselves having Anomalous Experiences that relate to Hi-Tech Neural Implants & CNS Enhancements that the person we are simulating HAD, but which we are a long way from developing here!!!"

From the specific wikipedia ‘quotes’ on the previous page , , ,

I’d like to remind you of the following:

1 – “It {photographic memory} is found in early childhood (between 2 percent and 10 percent of that age group) and is unconnected with the person’s intelligence level.”

If the above is correct then we could potentially have many people with this photographic visual enhancement. Let’s split the difference and say that maybe ((2+10)/2=6) or 6% of our western population may have this implant.

Investigating Human Memory Anomaly Possibilities & Relationships

In which case, with this many people potentially being simulated as having this type of highly anomalous photographic memory visual recall implant which couldn’t possibly be construed as being ‘natural’ then how will the simulation software keep these anomalous abilities hidden?

From the specific wikipedia ‘quotes’ I listed on the previous page I’d like to remind you of this one . . . .

3 – “If the {photographic memory} ability is not nurtured it usually begins to fade after the age of 6.”

Which ‘suggests’ that the simulation is trying to keep this anomalous ability hidden and obscured by identifying those with this ability when they are very young and then counteracting it. The effect of this counteraction results in this amazing ability being observed to fade out at the age of about 6.

From the wikipedia ‘quote’ on the previous page I’d like to highlight the following . . . .

“Eidetic memory is the ability to recall visual information, such as pages from books, magazines, and license plate numbers, in great detail after only brief exposure to it.”

As an aside question, I’d like someone to explain exactly what evolutionary advantage there would be in having the amazing abilities as listed above faded out at a very young age before they actually start to become REALLY USEFUL?

Let, me lay this out for you . . .

You potentially have a fairly substantial sub population with a built in ‘total’ visual recall, photographic memory ability. An ability that confers upon these people some extremely useful abilities. An ability that allegedly when functioning properly allows your past visual memories to be very accurately recalled. This would be particularly useful for researchers, writers, educated readers . . . the usefulness of this type of this type of ability would be extensive.

Let’s just imagine that people here have this ability because they are simulating someone with an implanted memory enhancement and that this implant includes artificial intelligence software that perhaps could automatically track your ‘thinking, interest and speculation’ lines and automatically recall information that you were interested in. Perhaps this type of memory enhancement would even recall or make you aware of information related to what you were already thinking about or in the process of reading? It’s not them impossible to envision that this type of implant would actually likely prompt you with any information that you were in the process of either trying to remember and or information that you would at that moment find useful.

Extending from the not unreasonable capabilities of this type or memory recall implant that I describe above, then as you became older you would likely end up more and more relying on this implant to recall things that you are having trouble remembering.

However, if the simulation is fading out these specific ‘technological enhanced’ assisted memory and automated memory recall abilities then you’d expect the sub population with this type of memory recall enhancement to gradually present themselves as having worsening memory recall problems and particularly so as they got older.

Is Alzheimer’s a Side Effect of ourselves as Simulated Humans having a Photographic Memory Implant suppressed?

Coincidentally, we have more and more people suffering from Alzheimer’s a condition associated with fading memory problems and increasingly poor memory recall. Coincidentally the Alzheimer condition impacts about 6% of the over 65’s in our current western population. 6%, if you remember from the first quote above is the middling estimate of the percentage of kids in the population considered to have this eidetic memory ability before it starts to mysteriously fade away.

Coincidentally I couldn’t help noticing that the people I personally knew that developed the Alzheimer condition were educated people that were ‘readers’ and they were also information and ‘news’ focused. They were not the sort of people that you’d actually expect to develop memory problems.

Coincidentally, if we are being simulated as having our technology development slowed down then despite that we don’t ‘visibly’ have these specific technologies available here it is actually likely that we’d have films that commented on the social and societal impact of these technologies being presented during the times when these technologies actually existed.

  1. Coincidentally, the 2004 film ‘Final Cut’ describes such an implant. An implant that saves and recalls all visual information. The film revolves around the accessing and use of information from this implant to compose a visual obituary of the persons life after they die.
  2. Also, one of the episodes of the ‘Black Mirror’ series also describes the use of such an implant. In this case one of the people with this implant runs some visual only scenes through a lip reading translation program so he can become aware of a conversation he’s particularly interested in.

Do you have an amazing memory or can you think of any other perhaps ‘memory’ related anomalous experiences that you’ve had? Do you have any memory recall abilities that you are suspicious of because of their accuracy? Have you any memories of any past event that you consider may be inaccurate?
