Scientific research is showing it is not difficult for people to be induced into remembering things that have not even happened! This worries me a bit.........
Emotions and the power of suggestion, especially when sensory details [taste, sound, smell, touch] are emphasized, can lead us to false beliefs.
In one study, after a leading interview, some 36% of people remembered being hugged by Bugs Bunny while visiting Disneyland...Bugs isn't even a Disney character. More disturbing, people can even show signs of PTSD from implanted memories!
It is getting harder and harder to even know our own minds!
