Time Leaps

Would it be possible to condense our memories into the form of data and send them back in time?

 

Let's say the me of 2046 decided he wanted to time leap back to 2010. To do this, he compressed his memories into an incredibly small amount of data, and sent them via cell phone back to 2010 through a Kerr Black hole (or whatever theory suits your fancy). The memories are then transmitted from the past me's cell phone into the temporal lobe of the me of 2010. As our memories from before the future memories arrived should be exactly the same, no serious amnesia would occur, save for the few seconds it took 2010 me to answer his phone.

Although it would make for a great story plot, the idea might be somewhat dangerous. Memory development occurs in a our brain as specific amounts of proteins, neurotransmitters and electric fields coalesce around conscious experience, it is a process which occurs progressively as the "Now" is being processed in our physical brain. If someone is to actually "download" information into a brain a person might need the specific amounts of proteins, neurotransmitters and electrical currents that will make up such memories. If you are able to send a signal through a cellphone the process might take more than a few seconds, probably even hours, and it would exhaust the physical brain, possibly even hurting it.

This is very interesting. Did you find the articles?

 

I'm looking again this morning. It is almost as if I imagined it. I could have sworn that I read articles about DNA, one stating they found a strange code in human DNA and another stating we could "write" information on it and spread it from generation to generation. But searching the internet, I now only find hypothetical articles.

 

Then there is this, but honestly, it's morning and I did not read it all. I am unsure as to what "communication" they are referring to but if anyone wants to take the time to read it, it looks interesting.

 

" We demonstrate the successful decoupling of a communication channel from message transmission within an engineered biological system via the autonomous targeted transduction of user-specified heterologous DNA messages. We also demonstrate that M13 particle production and transduction occurs among chemotactic bacteria. We use chemotaxis to increase the distance that DNA messages can travel, exceeding the transmission range and bit rate of existing small molecule-based communication systems. We postulate that integration of various engineered cell-cell communication platforms will allow for more complex spatial programming of dynamic cellular consortia."

I'm starting to get off topic. I may create a new one later.
