Think you have a good memory? Think again. Memories are our most cherished possessions. We rely on them every day of our lives. They make us who we are. And yet the truth is they are far from being the accurate records of the past we like to think they are. True, we can all admit to having suffered occasional memory lapses, such as entering a room and immediately forgetting why or suddenly being unable to recall the name of someone we've met dozens of times. But what if we have the potential for more profound errors of memory?

Thank you for this fantastic piece of work that questions humanities use of the mind and thoughts. Perhaps memory is better used to recall and remember our creative imagination ability to think about our wildest dreams and remember the future, not think about the past. For me the underlying message is, don't take thoughts too seriously, think well and be lucky.
