See the World

I was thinking about how many billions (perhaps trillions or more) of letters I’ve seen in my lifetime. Its just incredible the amount of written information in the world contains. I wonder what data structures my brain uses to store all this information, and how it can access most of it very quickly. Further reading on this subject is required.

Obviously when I want to remember something, my brain decides to store it, but what happens next? I would have to assume that some sort of biological change occurs within my brain, are new cells created? is there a bank of ‘free memory’? Writing about this has really sparked my interest, I’m going to have to go the library tomorrow!
