We know that computers cannot understand the meaning of its memory. The humans who use the computers have the meaning. Humans are the originator of the computer memory data and live outside the computer box. Therefore the same should be true for human brains also. Along that line we define human memory as a physical object. Humans perform some actions on some objects to produce the data that they need. This data is physical and becomes our memory. All actions require some motivations, reasons, or purposes. This purpose provides the meaning for the data. The human memory is therefore defined as a physical object consisting of three items {data, actions, purpose}. Since we are not alone or isolated, all human actions are performed simultaneously and interactively by many people located at many different places and over many different time periods. These joint actions produce the human memory data. Therefore this global space time (GST) environment is the originator of the human memory, contains the purpose of the memory, and the memory data. Using the laws of conservation of physics we show that the GST preserves this memory for eternity. The paper combines ideas from physics, mathematics, engineering, and neuroscience.
