Especially when two people share the same "wrong memory"- points to the 'timeline shift' explanation, it seems to me.paigetheoracle wrote:Well Espiralli that seems a reasonable explanation as I'm well aware of false memories and the vagaries of memory as we get older but the question then arises, where did these ideas come from and why? To me a firm grip on reality ensures that time is linear but what happens if we let go? Do events all happen at once or do we slide into alternate realities where the me here does things different there? The trouble with a lot of scientific research nowadays is that slides into the category of the bleeding obvious and says nothing you couldn't figure out yourself. It's all so shallow, like celebrity culture. I don't doubt my experience, I doubt their explanation.
