The Akashic Records are a catalog of all events, thoughts and feelings that have happened on Earth. Supposedly its stored on the etheric plane.
I'd like to have this information existing in the the material universe of my World. My thought is that these Akashic records would be encoded into the DNA of bacteria.
At a rate of 1.8 bits per nucleotide, how much bacterial mass would be needed to house 4.5 billion years worth of the Akashic Records?
(Edit) The record should only pertain to the events that happen to living creatures that orginate on earth. Resolution would be at the organismal level, not inter or intra cellular. The cells that host the library would not record their own actions.
Assume that the data increases according to a pareto distribution comensurate with the complexity of life, and humans are the largest contributers.
Our current digital data is at 2.7 zetabytes in total and 2.5 exabytes generated daily. 50% of humanity is online, so a rough estimate says that a human population of 7.2 billion produces >5 exabytes of data.
With the Current level of bacteria and archaea at a total of 77 gigatons of carbon, would there be enough storage space for the Akashic Records?
