Re: Funes the Memorious and memory capacity

The incredible mental ability of Funes, that is his ability to
remember, and perhaps more importantly not to forget, has been annoying
me all week. The problem being how much information is it possible for
a person to store? If Funes had lived for an infinitely long period of
time, surely he would eventually have been forced to omit information
about the environment in which he lived; and perhaps his mental
processing would also become impeded. Any ideas or comments to help me
out of this conundrum.
