REFERENCE 

It would be nice to have a photographic memory which would allow you to memorize every little statistic and piece of information you have ever encountered.

(On the other hand there are many things No One wants to remember)

In any case, this is the reason for reference books such as encyclopedias, medical books, manuals and almanacs.

You do not have to remember everything if you can look it up in a book.

Unlike a computer or cell phone a book is always there. You are never out of range, you do not need a battery or other energy source, you do not have to wait for a program to load.
