Memory is everywhere in the Brain and Nowhere

Extensive investigation of the brain has turned up the surprising fact that memory is not located in any one area or in a specific substrate.

It is located “everywhere” inside the brain in that sense that it the whole brain reacts on memory triggers. Like a holographic hard disk our brain may store data in every cell of the brain by decoding the data as a kind of wave pattern.

On the other side memory is located “nowhere” or better say nonlocal. Our perception of spacetime is the problem. We are so used to space that we forgot that time is a “dimension” too. Time is nonlocal and memory could be stored on this level as scalar information. Scalar means without dimensions in space. This would enable to persist memory for eternity, not subjected to decay. So memory is broadcasted and received by our brain rather than stored in a “warehouse of memories“.
