	Boy,  have you hit on a point there!   Yes,  it's because 
of how your brain works.   Quite different from a computer. 
We remember things with links (like hypertext, I guess) but we 
remember "feelings" about things more than the things themselves. 
This is kind-of like when you remeber reading something somewhere, 
but can't remember the exact text until you remember a context that 
includes things like the smell of the guy smoking a pipe nearby, etc.
