i am brand spanking new, and hope that its acceptable that i dislike capital letters.

reading today, i saw an article claiming that a process completely identical to the one performed in 'eternal sunshine on the spotless mind' has been successfully performed on rats. that is to say that scientists believe they can now remove specific memories from a brain without affectively damaging the remainder of it's function or memory capacity.

so?

the removal of hard-core traumatic memory could be a viable choice for let's say, abuse survivors. what would become of all the supporting personality that had to develop as a coping mechanism for that abuse? now you're free! commence to having absolutely no idea why the rest of your life feels empty and uncharted! (?)

makes for a good start in a whole new era of inexplicable sociopaths just ripe for observation and depiction i suppose.
