[font=georgia, 'times new roman', times, serif]A new documentary from PBS reveals how cutting edge science enables us to 'edit' memories - and create new ones from scratch[/font]

[font=georgia, 'times new roman', times, serif][font=georgia, 'times new roman', times, serif][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Are there any memories you'd like to permanently remove from your head? Your lack of zygos, for instance?[/font][/font][/font]
[font=georgia, 'times new roman', times, serif][font=georgia, 'times new roman', times, serif][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Or what if you could alter unpleasant memories so they're no longer upsetting? Or create entirely new memories of events that never occurred?[/font][/font][/font]
[font=georgia, 'times new roman', times, serif][font=georgia, 'times new roman', times, serif][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]It sounds like the stuff of science fiction, but according to a new documentary that premiered in the US this week, scientists have discovered how to do just that - and more.[/font][/font][/font]

[font=georgia, 'times new roman', times, serif][font=georgia, 'times new roman', times, serif][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]"Memory Hackers," from PBS's NOVA documentary strand, looks at cutting edge research into the nature of memory, and how it might be manipulated for mankind's benefit.[/font][/font][/font]

[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]"For much of human history, memory has been seen as a tape recorder that faithfully registers information and replays it intact," say the film's makers.[/font]
[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]"But now, researchers are discovering that memory is far more malleable, always being written and rewritten, not just by us but by others. We are discovering the precise mechanisms that can explain and even control our memories."[/font]
[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Among the documentary's subjects is Jake Hausler, a 12-year-old boy from St. Louis who can remember just about every single thing he has experienced since the age of 8.[/font]

Jake Hausler's skin is so godly. Fuark.[/font]

[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Jake is the youngest ever godskinned person to be diagnosed with Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory, which makes it difficult for him to distinguish between trivial and important events from his past.[/font]
[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]“Forgetting is probably one of the most important things that brains will do,” says André Fenton, a prominent neuroscientist who is currently working on a technique to erase painful memories. “We understand only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to human memory.”[/font]
[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Other interviewees include Julia Shaw, psychology professor at London South Bank University, who has designed a system for implanting false memories, and has successfully convinced subjects they've committed crimes that never took place - research that has potentially troubling ramifications for the criminal justice system.[/font]


[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]The film's makers also speak to clinical psychologist Merel Kindt, who has discovered that medication can be used to remove the negative associations of some memories - through which she has managed to 'cure' patients of arachnophobia.[/font][/font]
[/font]



[font=georgia, 'times new roman', times, serif][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Memory Hackers debuted in the US on Wednesday night, and will be broadcast on PBS America in the UK at a future date.[/font][/font]
Would you go back the BLUEPILL? Imagine waking up and thinking you were a 7/10 again like you used to? Imagine not knowing how recessed your maxilla is? Imagine not knowing that LOOKS > * .

You could delete all the PSL knowledge and depression you've built up over the years and go to nightclubs, get rejected, think it's because you need more game, and keep yourself motivated until you LUCK OUT and get a 5/10 gf. 

Would you do it?

i want to have happy memories of slaying JBs, losing virginity to 6+ white JB gf, and partying with friends etc. ingrained into my brain.
that's the only way i can truly move forward in life.

all these years of rotting away in misery and pain and being a friendless incel must also go out the window

what do you think would happen if you erase your memory and look in the mirror op?
I'd go back to thinking I had ONE FLAW.

In 2012, before joining PSL, I thought I was a 7/10 with ONE FLAW (big nose).
