I occasionally threaten my students that I will require one bit of 
work -- that they memorize the contents of their mobile phones...

externalization of memory -- essentially a process of putting organic 
memory into a very rigid framework of reduced impression.  That 
framework is generated by the techno-social system which consequently 
filters the memory into what vessels that techno-social system values.

A thought voice-spoken into the ear is released only for a moment 
from embodied presence as the sonic energy passes from the Self to 
the Other.  In the Other it manifests for ever as a changed energy 
state of be-ing.
