I will argue that for the potential for infinite memorization would require infinite energy. I will also argue that many flaws are in the brains system which will not allow you to retain all the information you like; at least without encountering one of the following:
Memory Transience, Absent-Mindedness, blocking, misattribution, suggestibility, bias, or persistence.

Most biases and other perceived weaknesses in people are actually the brain taking innocent shortcuts because it can only process a fraction of the information given to it. Also I can't back this up with evidence but i'm pretty sure the 'we only use 10% of our brain' is a load of crap. As for the use of the left hemisphere, from what i can recall, the left side of the brain is responsible for clasification and catigorising, mathematics and what not. the hippocampus is what is mainly responsible for memory, which as a I correctly guessed befor checking out the page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippocampus is in the left hemisphere. The right hemisphere doesn't perform the same tasks so it's not like we are aren't utilizing the brains full potential.
I don't mean to shoot you down and I would be interested in checking out the channel, It's just that your post had all the signs of a salesman trying to sell me bullshit and alarm bells went off

I'll use a place I no longer live in, like my first house (which I remember very well) and start "depositing" memories there. But there isn't really anything to attach a certain fact to a room; the idea of leaving memories all over the place just seems like forced photographic memory.
