We think memory does not work like that. But then,
neurophysiologists don't really know how or where a memory is
stored. They just have some idea which brain structures and
chemicals may participate in memory formation and retrieval.
There have been other anomalous memory phenomena that do not
conform to expectation and can't be explained. These suggest
that the computer storage analogy is probably wrong.

Here we may have unknown ET technology involved, so we have to
allow for the possibility that Penniston's memory was
manipulated somehow.

When pushed, Penniston will only say that the new book will
include the rest of the binary code and will explain all.

It seems you are just refusing to let go of an opinion that is
demonstrably wrong. I showed that the communication did not
fail, so I'm puzzled why you would say that it did. The message
was a graphic that was part of a set defined by the common
decoding algorithm. We just can't be sure of the reason for the
