Design an image inspired by the Memex, an early concept that influenced the creation of the World Wide Web.

The Memex, mentioned in the article "As We May Think" by Vannevar Bush, is a hypothetical device that was envisioned as an extension of human memory. It was proposed as a way to store, organize, and access vast amounts of information, including books, records, and communications. The Memex was imagined as a desk-like structure with various screens, buttons, and levers that would allow users to navigate through information and create connections between different pieces of data, much like how the human mind associates ideas and memories.

Though the Memex was never built, it is considered an early inspiration for the development of the World Wide Web, hypertext, and personal computers. The concept of the Memex laid the groundwork for many of the digital tools and technologies we use today to access and organize information.
