having read through freuds text… i struggle to relate to his point about “auxiliary apparatus”. this is because i am wrestling with the idea that modern computers, the web, mobile devices are “built on the same model as the sense organs themselves or portions of them.” memory can be stored permenantly and temporarily… it can be edited and checked. potentially no physical memory trace exists, yet an unlimited amount of space exists for memory and can be easily filed and located, even with pictures, sounds etc. (smells?) anyway… just a wee ramble.
