Experiments have been devised to determine the home of memories. As is common to the mainstream way of thinking, memories are thought to have a material origin. There is a rather irrational insistence that memories must arise from physical matter since they are seemingly possessed by physical beings.
The data from some experiments and medical observations show that memories are not dependent on the brain. While it is true that in a normal functioning organism the brain exhibits electrical activity in conjunction with thinking, it does not hold true that the removal of brain material equals the removal of memories.
For example, in experiments involving the decapitation of planarian worms, it was found that the worms could retain memories even when their head was entirely removed, and then a new head regenerated by the remainder of the body. It was further found that the memories of planarian worms, which were ground up and fed to other planarian worms, were transferred by virtue of being consumed.
Using the Aether Physics Model as the paradigm for understanding the physics involved, it would be more consistent to state that memories are stored in the Aether, or the space encapsulating matter. At the boundary of physical matter and space is the unit of conductance, which has been empirically shown to correspond with feelings, such as in lie detector tests and magnetic resonance imaging.
