We appreciate this is a long span of time, and were concerned why any specific artificial memory system should last for so long.
I suspect that artificial memory systems, particularly those that make some sort of logical sense, will indeed be long lasting ones.
Given the long, unchanging history of the Acheulean hand axe, as an example, these sorts of ideas and practices were handed down from generation to generation.
Given their ties to human survival, they're even more likely to persist.
Indigenous memory systems in Aboriginal settings date to 65,000 years and also provide an example of long-lived systems.
