I once proposed that: without memory thare can be no intelligence. Now that's a fact. I believe it without a doubt. What is commonly termed intelligence is nothing more than the selection, compilation, and integration of stored memories, and finally the individual's own interpretation of the resulting conclusion derived from this process.
Memory is all.
Addendum: Episode 10, Season 4 of The X-Files is a real piece of crap.
This Is Who I Am
