If you had a box that held individual experiences what would you call it?

  • These experiences do not necessarily have to be your own.
  • Others can put their own experiences in the box.
  • The experiences are all related by physical location.
  • You can only view the experiences when you are physically near the box.

What would you call this box? A container? A vault? A vessel?

SUPPLEMENT

Also maybe trove

Or treasury

This is what I'm looking for, something along these lines. Do you have any other suggestions? –  random Feb 10 at 23:32

I would call it a 'Life Capsule', to correspond with a 'Time Capsule'.

Do you have any ideas on something that's only word and little more generic? –  random Feb 10 at 23:33
