... and no one is there to hear it, does it make any sound?
Memories are useful only in the recall and experience, not in the storage. DNA is one form of data storage for messages to cells about their mission in life and rules of engagement. These DNA-stored memories of our ancestors should therefore be "known" since we "have" them, but they are not readily useful to us in any conscious sense. Stored memory is potential, kenitic. Unless we "know" how to recall it, and then apply it to a useful purpose, it might as well not exist at all.
I had two points in this thread: (1) to confirm whether I was alone in my feeling that CH and memory loss may be related, they seem to be, not with perfect correlation, but nothing about CH seems to be, except the pain and suffering, and (2) to validate that an idea that this is in-fact a complex issue with a complex fact pattern. I was also attempting to deal with a 6-week cluster bout which had me on the edge of insanity. As I had paid the admission price for the outter-limits show, I thought I'd stretch out and play around a bit. I wanted to get out of the pitty-pot, whiney, poor-me crowd and do something different.
Now get me right on this, I'm not here to pass judgement on anything or anybody or their ideas. All I know is that I dont know a whole lot about a whole lot. There are in-fact only a few things which I feel confident that I really know. Most things I accept with the knowledge that there most probably are errors in, or alternative opinions about, whatever is being presented as true and correct. Most of the time those are immaterial and don't become an issue.
All I was looking for was a challenge to take my mind off the pain and depression and get a fix on where things stood. What I see is chaos in both the problem definition and in the collection of proposed solutions, and I can deal with that, if I can remember what the question was.
BTW -- I do have a middle name but don't really use it very often.
