memory crystal

Memory crystals were objects used in Knowledge Towers to store information. Data could be recorded in the crystal by means of physical contact with a scholar, but the operation needed to be triggered by the will of that scholar.[1]


Matoro once proposed a theory that, at one point, some frost beetles consumed memory crystals and somehow absorbed the knowledge inside them, passing it on to others through a sort of hive-mind and thus increasing the intelligence of the entire species.[2]

Knowledge crystals and memory crystals were apparently similar but distinct objects. Both memory crystals and knowledge crystals were able to store information and were used to grow Knowledge Towers.[3, 4, 5, 6, 7] See knowledge crystal.
