It has always seemed to me that our brains are a finite resource, and I can't help but wonder what parts of her brain are diminished by this exceptional recall. Parts of her brain are physically larger, so which parts are smaller to compensate?
Quote by Der Spiegel:She's constantly bombarded with fragments of memories, exposed to an automatic and uncontrollable process that behaves like an infinite loop in a computer. Sometimes there are external triggers, like a certain smell, song or word. But often her memories return by themselves. Beautiful, horrific, important or banal scenes rush across her wildly chaotic "internal monitor," sometimes displacing the present. "All of this is incredibly exhausting," says Price.
I thought a better memory would be a boon, but now I wonder how much it would suck.
