Yes. Take a Holocaust survivor, or even an MIA POW, and show them a photograph or two, particularly of something that they refuse to remember... by
making them acknowledge that event, their minds will snap.
But for something more fun, more... grand...
We all have a collective memory; helps explains the high numbers of people afraid of spiders and the dark (a memory of Cthulhu from the dawning of
man). Anyway, ever get that feeling when you know you are close to the truth? Not the truth, but rather THE TRUTH? Your heart rate and breathing
quicken, your spine tightens... and, at the moment of clarity...
Mental fog. The thought disappears, evaporates... and you are left there, confused, wondering what you were thinking about to begin with.
There is something there, in our past, that we do not want to remember. All it would take for people as a whole to lose all reasoning is for one
individual to unlock that memory and expose it.
Almost like the movie In the Mouth of Madness. Everyone becomes insane, except for the person that realized and exposed the truth.
