BTW: On the subject of human memory ability, here is
one noteworthy result:

* The 4 Hindu Vedas and Baghadva Gita are each about
  10,000 words long. (The bible, in contrast, is about
  5,000 words long.)

* These volumes were handed down verbally from
  generation to generation for thousands of years
  before they written.

* After some 6 to 10,000 years, there is ONE PHRASE
  over which there are some differences of
  interpretation -- out of all 5 volumes.
It boggles the mind.
