    50% 'remember' false events

    Like some of those peeps I've met in Bangers and Patters that were in "special forces."


    By SHANIKA GUNARATNA CBS NEWS December 9, 2016,
    Study: Half of people "remember" events that never happened

    “Memories” of events can be influenced by other people’s suggestions.

    Ever find yourself caught up in a vivid memory of an event that, you later realize with confusion, didn’t really happen the way you thought?
    According to new research by psychologists at the University of Warwick in the U.K., you are far from alone.

    The study demonstrated that about half of individuals will come to believe a fictional event occurred if they are told about that event and then repeatedly imagine it happening.

    More than 400 people participated in the study, led by professor Kimberley Wade.

    The study experimented with implanting fake (but relatively harmless) memories, such as taking a childhood hot-air balloon ride, pulling a prank on a teacher, or causing trouble at a family wedding, into the minds of study participants. Researchers told them about the imaginary events as if they were real, and about 30 percent of participants appeared to “remember” it happening, even elaborating on how it occurred and describing details of what it was like. Another 23 percent showed signs of accepting the story to some degree, the researchers said.

    Showing participants photos of the purported hot-air balloon ride actually diminished the chances that they would accept the account and develop false memory.
    The researchers theorize this could be because “such photos may serve to constrain imagination during efforts to recall the event, thus leading to lower memory formation.”

    In order to fit the definition of a false memory, they looked for instances where participants went beyond the “facts” initially told to them. “As participants move from saying ‘I do not remember that’ to ‘Now I remember … ,’ they must report additional imagery or otherwise elaborate beyond the suggested material,” the authors wrote in the study, published in the journal Memory. “Thus, approximately one-third of participants showed evidence of a false memory, and more than half showed evidence of believing that the event occurred in the past.”

    The study highlights the slippery nature of human memory, and is just the latest in a growing body of research looking into how memories form and how they can be manipulated.

    “The finding that a large portion of people are prone to developing false beliefs is important. We know from other research that distorted beliefs can influence people’s behaviors, intentions and attitudes,” Wade said in a press statement.

    The results also raise questions about the integrity of processes that rely heavily on human memory, from courtroom testimony to therapy treatments.

    Don't you ever wake up so slowly that you're not sure which reality is real, your wake state or your dream state? Sometimes the vagueness can persist a while. Nothin' wrong with that. Lucid dreaming is an unbelievable accomplishment. Give it a try.

    That's an old article that was posted around on the web back in the 60's. I remember it because it was just before I was accepted into the SAS.

    It was faxed by T.E. Dunne

    His experiment with time is a classic of the genre, a friend borrowed my autographed cpoy bought of a lady who knew him at The Ltd in Hay in the day when Richard =the gin" Booth held court.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_Experiment_with_Time

    The section about the earthquake is compelling and discusses serial time

    For those interested Henri Bergson, Arthur Koestler and Colin Wilson muse on the same issues
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    One undisputed fact is a women will see the exact same event as a man but will remember it differently.

    Now you mention it, I remember it, too. It was when he had the avatar with the woman wearing a veil.

    That pretty much goes for everyone. It is called perception.

    So, was it a man with a hat or a woman with a veil?

    My mum often tells stories about a son she has. Lazy little bastard he was, a real handful. Unkempt hair. Drank liquor and smoked weed. Played music too loud. Misbehaved constantly, very disrespectful and never helped around the house. Irresponsible. Borrowed things without asking. Well, I grew up in that house. And I did not even have a brother. Those days were full of laughs and freewheeling good times. A completely fun youth it was. Mum's obviously full of false memories.
