"A laptop of the 1990s has more memory, more flexibility, more functions, and more versatility (and is far faster) than the computers of 1960, which typically required about 2,000 square feet of space just to house them. The exponential increase in computer memory is reflected in Moore's Law, which states that memory capacity doubles every eighteen months. Computer speed follows a similar pattern. Ten years ago, a 10-megahertz chip was the norm; five years ago, the norm was 100 megahertz."

"Acetylcholine is an important neurotransmitter involved in muscle control, and memory. Large doses of lecithin have improved memory, but have not been helpful with Alzheimer's disease. Without choline to make lecithin, the liver cannot rid itself of fats and cholesterol. This can lead to a condition known as "fatty liver." Choline is needed for liver health and liver damage results from deficiency. Some choline is oxidized in the body to a metabolite known as betaine. Betaine supplies methyl groups for various methylation reactions."

"The exponential increase in computer memory is reflected in Moore's Law, which states that memory capacity doubles every eighteen months. Computer speed follows a similar pattern. Ten years ago, a 10-megahertz chip was the norm; five years ago, the norm was 100 megahertz. As I write, the first 1,000-megahertz (1-gigahertz) chips have been announced, allowing real-time speech recognition, simultaneous translation, and a host of other capabilities that were science fiction only a few years ago. As the power-to-size ratio of computers has exploded, so have their numbers."

"Manasoliasi ni OR The memory Pills. 24. 'Manasolasini or The memory Pills', from Pandit D. Gopalacharlu, Ayurvedic Medicine prepared. . . at the Madras Ayurvedic Laboratory, 1909. Here, by contrast, a man in western clothing with light hair is presenting medicine to another man in Indian attire. The text of the advertisement is strikingly similar to that of western patent medicines intended to cure that Jin de siecle ailment 'neurasthenia', and to address the strains of 'modernity'. But it also used the traditional Ayurvedic language of purification."

"Lack of sufficient iron in early childhood can contribute to problems with learning, memory, and behavior. Supplementation may prevent further problems, but may not correct existing iron deficiency problems. Iron deficiency has been found to increase the intestinal absorption of lead, which contributes to learning and memory problems. High-Risk Individuals for Iron Deficiency Rapid growth rates coupled with limited intakes of iron can cause deficiency in children between the ages of six months and four years. Infants are normally born with enough iron stores to last the first six months."

"On the other hand, sometimes the subconscious mind tries to make a point by changing history a little, adding features to the story, or inserting symbols into a memory sequence. For example, if you were born to your father late in his life and were ashamed of his advanced age and expanding waistline when you were a kid, the distortion above could have significance. Make note of these distortions when they arise. You can explore whether or not they have meaning both during and after the regression session."

"Realize you are attached to the old thought pattern because you've been brainwashed by the effects of memory and conditioning. Do you really want to remain attached to your conditioned distorted thoughts or would you rather adopt the new way of thinking and take control of your life? The old thought pattern needs to go if you are going to restore your freedom, dignity, and self-efficacy. Remind yourself you deserve this newfound freedom and power and stick with the process. The benefits will far outweigh the effort required to jettison the old way of thinking."

"For most of us, that domestic matriarchal role is a memory. Luckily our family roles have expanded and fathers contribute to the home much more than ever before. We have little excuse for poor nutrition other than a lack of interest. Nutritional education of every family member is crucial. Many people have a faulty idea of what a healthy diet is. Sometimes our best intentions fail because food labels are mysterious to the average person. The food industry's labeling distorts our perception of healthy foods."

"He suggests that homeopathy might be correct in its claim that water can be imprinted with information, that water has a memory.31 Homeopathic remedies are made from substances, such as minerals or plants, that are placed in a solution, usually mostly water, which is then succussed (vigorously shaken). The solution is then diluted further and the procedure repeated, often until not a single molecule of the original substance remains in the remedy. All that remains is information."

"I will guide you to a memory, an issue, or another location in your mind or body using imagery, direct suggestion, or a combination of these methods. Once you've arrived at your destination, you will naturally experience the wisdom, power, and perception of the subconscious (or super-conscious) mind. You will merge right in. Some people move back and forth between subconscious and super-conscious awareness, depending on the nature of their inquiry."

"Memory in the Underworld" and the "Chapter of Giving a Heart to Osiris N. in the Underworld" carry the process of rebirth two stages further. Then begin the chapters of the dangers that the lone voyager has to face and overcome on his way to the throne of the awesome judge. The Book of the Dead was buried with the mummy as a guide book to the perils of the difficult way, and chapters were recited at the time of burial."

"Thenceforward my vision was greater than our speech, which yields to such a sight, and the memory yields to such excess." 167 167 "Paradiso," XXXIII, 49-57 (translation by Norton, op. cit., Vol. Ill, pp. 253-254, by permission of Houghton Mifflin Company, publishers). ill I. u l u 1v1 a j c n \J \J n "There goes neither the eye, nor speech, nor the mind: we know It not; nor do we see how to teach one about It.

"Heaven has become for us the cosmic space of the physicists, and the divine empyrean a fair memory of things that once were.

"Infectious agents that get past the nonspecific barriers must then confront weapons produced by the body that have been specifically tailored to suit the intruder based on blueprints stored by memory cells after a previous exposure. Long-term immunity can be stimulated not only by infection but also by vaccines made from infectious agents that have been inactivated or, more commonly, from minute portions of the offending microbe. For example, the flu vaccine is comprised of inactive flu virus."

"The symptoms of Alzheimer's disease are progressive mental deterioration characterized by an inability to carry out daily activities, a loss of cognitive functions, and a loss of memory functions. Extensive research studies indicate that the causes of Alzheimer's disease can include genetic factors, age, environmental factors, chronic exposure to aluminum and/or silicon, and increased oxidative damage due to long-term toxic exposure."

"The most common nonphysical symptoms are poor memory, poor concentration, tearfulness, anxiety, and loss of interest in sex. Changes in metabolism (internal chemistry) also occur during menopause, but may not cause symptoms until later. The bones lose calcium more rapidly, especially in the first two to five years of the period. Other metabolic effects include a possible rise in blood pressure and an increase in fats in the blood. A common remedy offered for some of the symptoms is estrogen replacement therapy."

"In effect, the remedy retains a memory of information about the healing substance that the body can recognize and use. Research conducted by NES extended this theory and resulted in the development of our own type of remedies, called Infoceuticals, which are encoded with information, but in a way wholly unlike the dilution and succussion method of homeopathy. If recent experimental evidence from mainstream scientists continues to mount in homeopathy and NES's favor, conventional scientists might have to revise their opinions—and even their science."

"Carl Jung, Freud's colleague, first coined the phrase "the collective unconscious" to describe an aspect of subconscious awareness that includes a storehouse of latent memory traces from man's ancestral past—the whole history of our evolution. We can tap into this universal component of human consciousness through the subconscious mind. Included in the collective unconscious are "archetypes," basic human personality patterns that we live out. These are personality roles—warrior, caregiver, seeker, sage, fool, and so on."

"The heartburn drug Tagamet, for instance, was included on a well-known list of drugs that the elderly should avoid because it can cause dizziness, confusion, and memory problems. This information was not included on the Tagamet boxes I found being sold off the drugstore shelf. In 1951 Congress had tried to protect Americans from dangerous drugs they did not need by amending the law to require patients to get prescriptions from physicians for most medications. Before that, pharmacists could give consumers whatever drugs they desired."

"Be that as it may, it still may not satisfy Metzinger's basic question: "How can you coherently report about a selfless state of consciousness from your own, autobiographical memory? How could this episode ever constitute an element of your own mental life?" So, my fourth point is, I feel the answer may be discovered in my feeling-tone dream (described in chapter 6). In that lucid dream, we see that "awareness" apparently has the mobility to reside outside of the waking self construct. In that dream, I experienced the "waking self as feeling-tone."

"She grew up poor in what was then rural California, close enough to San Francisco to have a vague memory of water sloshing around in the family animal trough during the great 1906 earthquake. Her father was a mule skinner. Her mother converted to Adventism when Marge was 9 months old, so Marge rarely ate meat and hadn't now for more than 50 years. "My father was a fun man; he'd laugh and pull jokes on us and torment my mother. I'm like him a little bit. I always wanted to do things for people. When I was a little girl I used to tell my mother to go to bed so I could bring her things."

"One student was reading from a Bible; another had her eyes shut and was reciting it from memory; two others were only occasionally chiming in, and mostly doing can-can kicks in clownish, spontaneous choreography. It was an ad hoc, perhaps fleeting community, and everyone seemed happy. It reminded me of what Marge Jetton had told me about why she volunteered so much: "Because it makes me feel good," she'd said. "Don't you like to help people up when they need a hand?"

"At 102, she recited from memory a six-minute poem by Pablo Neruda. ?Francesca Castillo (Panchita), who was 99 the first time we met her, lived alone outside Hojancha, cut her own wood, and twice a week walked a mile into town (once to attend Sunday Mass and a second time to go to the market). At week's end, we gathered all of our notes and returned to San Jose. Michel was very excited. We all agreed that, along with Sardinia's Blue Zone, this was one of the most extraordinary regions of longevity we'd seen."

"I began to trust again in the very age of the stone beings—Grandmothers and Grandfathers—who hold memory of a time before humans walked the Earth. Their heat began to penetrate my pores, and slowly my own salty moisture began to seep out. Some barrier was breached, and fear began to slowly melt. "I remember that the familiar songs of the first round of the lodge helped my fearful voice to dare to let itself be heard, buoyed as it was by the voices of my friends, all of us singing together. And I remember that when it came time for me to pray, the words came from somewhere deep down."

"A stream of memory begins to flow of following a well-worn track with an inner map, a map my feet recognize, carrying me along to a place my body knows. I continue down the mountain, led by the moose veering now to the right, and the sound of gurgling comes to my ears—water, there's water here! Of course, we are going to water, to drink from a spring. Journal Entry, February 2006 33 It has been said that the spiral is the oldest symbol of human spirituality. Nature manifests in a spiraling motion, returning with new life each year."

"That I had "felt the finger of God" I am quite sure, and, although the memory of this experience has faded, it still helps me to understand the joys of the saints. Margaret Isherwood recalled an experience she had when she was nine years old: Suddenly the Thing happened, and as everybody knows, it cannot be described in words. The Bible phrase, "I saw the heavens open" seems as good as any if not taken literally. I remember saying to myself, in awe and rapture, "So it's like this; now I know what heaven is like, now I know what they mean in church."
