Of course I do.
But the question is, ARE they really "false"?
They are false relatively
, insofar no such event seems to have been recorded in the perceived past of the individual's current timeline - but
are they absolutely
Or put another way: do those "false" memories create para-physical repercussions? Do they provide some sort of CONTEXT for themselves?
Or are they "bleed-throughs" from a very real but currently imperceptible other reality?
(After all, even respected physicists and other scientists are now admitting that "time" is not necessarily what it appears to be.)
And, again, it would help if they tried to explain WHY the brain would make up false memories at all. In science, as in criminology, you usually have
to provide a plausible MOTIVE for any given act - or at least look for it.
