Einstein Quote

There’s a story that says Einstein was once asked for his phone number. He walked over to a phone book and started to look it up. When the questioner expressed surprise that someone so smart wouldn’t know his own phone number, Einstein said he didn’t want to clutter his mind with information he could easily look up.

This echoes the idea inherent in 2Time that the mind is a terrible storage device and that the function should be outsourced to more reliable, electronic devices.
