do you imagine being completely aware of all the data coming from our senses at all time? it would be... Hermagerd staaahhppppp!!!!!! and then to add some fun, having to actually remember all the data+interpretation instead of how close something is from already vaguely memorized patterns. again in quasi real time because new data keeps coming. that would be crazy and most likely not viable. instead we have perfect creatures like me, who can hardly follow a conversation if there's a TV turned on in the room, and can't remember what someone requested this morning on the phone. flawless!
