I've been learning and memorizing japanese kanji for the past 6 months, and I've memorized around 700 of them. My goal is to reach the 2000 joe.
I never thought it was possible to remember so many things, and I can still recall the readings for each of 700 of the kanji I know without problem. So do you think there is a limit to how much we can remember?

Yes . limited..
Storage Capacity of human being is 10^13 to 10^19 bytes. (From Neural Network point of view)(Very Tough Subject.. i don't know how i managed to pass it)

but my conscience says.. it must be unlimited..(After all we are created by the Almighty and no computer in this world can ever Beat a human .. not now and not even in the future.. no man made thing can ever beat god's creation)

Limited means how much something can hold, or do - not how big something is. PI is infinite, not unlimited.

How can you say that?
no one knows this fact.. coz pi is not a recurring number... and it is evenly possible that it may end after some finite mega zillion numbers..

But true .. that not everything has a limit.. as number system is unlimited(infinite)... ideas are unlimited...

mass of a substance attained at speed of light is unlimited. blah blah etc

I have to disagree on that one.

So infinite will be like a "circle" there is no start and no end, even if you pass the same spot a million times.
Unlimited is like a straight line, the line goes on forever but there is a end to it though you just haven't reach it yet?

Human brains can stores lots of memory, sometimes we just need to overclock it. As there was a article saying there was this patient who had memory loss so doctors decided to try a experiment on him. They put a helmet on him and the turned that thing on and instantly that guy remembers everything he had encounter throughout his life down to the very details. When they turn the helmet off, he can't remember anything. Smile

If infinate is a circle that loops and repeats itself, then how is Pi infinate if it is not (known) to repeat or loop?

Ex -:1) Ray. have a starting point but no ending points
and
2) open-close and close-open intervals.. (bounded on one side and unbounded on the other) y = |x| (y:R->R) lowest value 0 , highest infinite and curve represents a straight line.

Pi is not necessarily infinite we just don't know where it ends or recur.

We use about 3% of our brain at anytime, maybe there is a limit, but i dont think it will ever be possible for us to reach it, and god knows what happens then...
