I just watched a PBS NOVA documentary called Memory Hackers. The main point from it is that memory is not fixed, it’s not a book in a shelf, but a more like a file you open and have to save before closing down. So every time we recall certain memories we can change them, whether or not we are conscious about it. The same applies for memories lost, because we don’t recall them often, then never at all.
Remember when you were a kid and your parents had friends over and they could talk about stories endlessly. It’s because they have practiced those stories, sharpened them, enjoyed them and so on. Now, this implies that we can actually implant memories and delete memories. We don’t need lab-machines and wires into our brains to achieve that. Long held sciences of consciousness like meditation, focus and contemplation can do the same.
Bruce Lipton has given a boost in this direction of reprogramming ourselves. So that we don’t live in fear or dogmas, not only created by ourselves, but by the environment we grew up in. So when it boils down we create the state of mind we live in and are taking with us into the future.
The dark side of this is of course that bio-tech can make the examples brought forth in the documentary Memory Hackers practical in a future dystopia, similar to Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. Meaning implanting false memories on an industrial scale, erasing individual and collective memories that are unwanted by the system.
Bottom line, you are free to shape your future, the spiritual tools are and have been available for ages. This isn’t something new, but the bio-tech development might bring a certain industrial mass produced aspect to it. Imagine that, how widespread the implantation of false memories would be.
