I would think that the problem of overwriting or otherwise
losing memories will be solved in the next century or two.
Until then I would say we are not fully alive; or rather that
will have reached a higher plane of consciousness when we
are able to remember all that we experience -- although I
hold out no hope for total recall of current events.

Half-dead, anyway!
