The vast potential of your associative machinery

Consider the fact that every sight, sound, smell, taste or sensation you have ever received - either consciously or paraconsciously - is like a tiny radiant centre with millions of associations emanating from it.

Now think about trying to note down all these associations. It would be impossible, because every time you noted something you would have a thought about what you had noted. That would be another association which you would be obliged to note down, and so on, ad infinitum. The human brain can make an infinite number of associations; and our creative thinking potential is similarly infinite.

In the average human brain there are multiple quadrillions of 'used' associations. This vast network may be considered not only as your memory or personal reference library, but also as your entire conscious and paraconscious self (see Tony Buzan, Harnessing the ParaBrain).
