It was Coleagues of David Marr's who
'got back to me', after, apparently,
finding stuff I'd sent amongst Dr. Marr's
effects, after he Died.

Nothing further came of it.

[Aside: It's been interesting to observe
how, after each period of sleeping-con-
sciousness, my recall of these long-ago
[late 1970's(?)] events has become clearer.

There've been two intervening sleep-cycles.
I posted the correction after the 1st of
these, and I'm posting this clarification
after the 2nd.

This's an example of the sleeping-consci-
ousness "database-walking" that I've been
discussing elsewhere in b.n.

During each preceding period of waking-
consciousness, my experiencing of inform-
ation 'correlated' to my long-ago experience
constituted a bit of 'info-cramming' that got
sorted-out during each subsequent sleeping-
conciousness cycle.

So it's not only an experiential-total <-> 'day's-
experience cross-correlation. It's also part
of long-term 'memory'-access :-]

The old-long-since info was 'raised' to the
'front' with respect to my succeeding periods
of waking-consciousness.

'Sleep' is important, and extremely-functional
stuff with respect to everything that has to do with
'memory', obviously even with respect to recall-
prioritization [as in this example].

Fascinating!
