Well if a few neurons die, the mind may piece things together differently when it tries to remember.

I've never 'misremembered' except for very minor things (like where did I put my keys?) but I've known some people who remembered things completely differently. It's really difficult dealing with those kind of people too, because they become convinced that something happened a certain way. They'll make promises and conveniently forget them for instance.


Like that creativity machine, killing parts of the memories leads to creativity as the machine struggles to remember, but it reassembles the memories in different ways (leading to creativity of course). I imagine the human brain works in a similar fashion.

Hard not to stay in the middle ground on this one. I think either scenario is likely, and yet not mutually exclusive (as are most things I've come to understand).
