A thought re: taxon vs. locale memory

Here’s a thought I had while writing about taxon and locale memory but didn’t include: the popular computer game The Sims is nothing more than humans without locale memory. You have to teach them everything, and the only way they can learn it is through constant repetition. Even the worst blockhead who ever walked through the doors of the media center doesn’t have to be shown the way out, but that’s the way we’d be without locale memory.

And we want to teach using taxon memory? What is wrong with us?
