Thinking about remembering & forgetting in machine mediated conversations

Creating conversations between myself (with insight into the protagonist's world model within the written text) and characters in "Twice, again", has brought up questions of how aspects of the ongoing conversation are remembered, what should be remembered and, perhaps more importantly, what it is okay, or even necessary to forget.

"I thought that each of my words (that each of my movements) would persist in his implacable memory; I was benumbed by the fear of multiplying useless gestures."

Funes The Memorious, Borges

The context of the current conversation, what is remembered & what is forgotten — is by necessity actively maintained, it is the only thing setting it apart from the "collective memory" of the model itself.
