"The whole human memory can be, and probably in a short time will be, made accessible to every individual. (...) It need not be concentrated in any one single place. It need not be vulnerable as a human head or a human heart is vulnerable. It can be reproduced exactly and fully, in Peru, China, Iceland, Central Africa, or wherever else seems to afford an insurance against danger and interruption. It can have at once, the concentration of a craniate animal and the diffused vitality of an amoeba." — H. G. Wells, World Brain, 1937 [1]
