how to remember the amino acids
- October 10, 2021
Forget the “molecule”. Forget the “protein”. Forget the “amino acid”.
The problem with proteins is that they are very fleeting and the only way to get a long-term benefit from them is to put them in a food or drink. These days, we just think of proteins as being energy-dense chunks of meat packed with nutrients. But while protein is good for energy, it is not so good for memory. We’re talking about proteins that are short-lived (two hours). By the time they have been digested, they are barely even recognizable.
These days, we think of our brains as being like a giant container of protein. But in reality, it’s like a giant container of protein packed with all kinds of different nutrients. It’s a little more complicated than that, though. The brain is actually a fairly complex organ that is comprised of two different regions. The first is the cortex (the outer layer of the brain), which is responsible for your day-to-day thinking and short-term memory.
In an experiment we tried to replicate an actual-day-to-day scenario we saw in “The Last Samurai,” a video game, with a very long-lasting memory. On one level, it seemed more like a mini-game. In the end, we found out that the memory was actually built more like a fully functional, human brain than a mere computer-based simulation of the environment. But the brain is a huge brain.
The brain is actually the brain’s brain. In a system like a computer, a computer system is the system that performs calculations, writes data, and writes data. It’s a big brain.
There are two ways to remember things: the “real” way, and the “virtual” way. Most of us don’t realize how we remember things. The brain stores everything, including memories. We remember what we read, which we watch, and which we hear, by the simple process of remembering. In The Last Samurai, the “real” way of remembering was a video game. In Deathloop, we’ve built a way to remember things not by memorizing them.
Remembering by the virtual way is as trivial as memorizing by the real way, or reading a book by the way we read it. The real way of remembering for most people, while it may be the most efficient, is by memorizing the actual words. That may be the quickest way, but it seems to come at a cost. If we memorize the words, we forget the meaning, which is the reason why most of us dont remember what we read.
While the “memorize and forget” strategy can be effective, it comes at a cost. Not only do we have to learn a whole new system of how to remember because we only know the name of a protein that looks like an amino acid, we have to learn how to remember it. And even that means we have to learn the entire genetic code of the human body. That’s a lot of work.
It’s not too bad. A human genome is the equivalent of a dictionary, and if you memorize all of the amino-acids inside a human, you can remember the entire DNA code.
In order to do that you need a whole new memory system. As we mentioned earlier, you only know the name of a protein, but that only tells you the first 15 letters of the protein. After you memorize the DNA code, you actually have to learn the entire genetic code. That takes a lot of time and effort, and it’s not something you can do overnight. But if you have to remember all this information, you’ll eventually get that much info from DNA.
