Memory and Database...


How far will we go to archive, remember our lives? Will humans have to opportunity to document their whole lives, and store it in a database for later retrieval? And if so, is that ethically correct, considering 'no man is an island,' and a single person is connected to many others?

Would anyone actually want their whole lives recorded, including the good, the bad and the ugly? The things we do when we think nobody else is looking, including things that we may not be proud to relive? If there is no record of these occurrences, did they really happen? Conspiracies, cover-ups, Christopher Columbus, extra-terrestrials...

Who's to decide what is archived? And what is or is not censored?
