You forget, the human working memory for language is only able to hold roughly seven items in memory at a time.

Besides language some people’s memory is totally awesome. People can remember whole decks of cards in order in less than 30 sec. Can you believe that! I can only remember 10 cards roughly in more than 2 minutes. Totally Amazing.

People that can do that use ways to learn the deck of cards, this means its is commited to memory more than just passing through the brain. I saw a 10 year old child on Child Genius remember a whole deck using this method! Its something with practise a lot of people can learn to do!
Do you think that in many years time that computers will be able to function as well as the human brain does now? Also
How does a young child learn a language and what are some development stages ( eg , gurgling , adding consonants)?
Why do people get stressed?
Why are no other species of animal as smart as humans? Do you ever think there will be a smarter species than humans?
