How False Memory Changes What Happened Yesterday
It’s such a terrifying but beautiful notion that every day you wake up with a slightly different personal past.
Sometimes our memories are just made up.
Our brains play tricks on us all the time, and these tricks can mislead us into believing we can accurately reconstruct our personal past. In reality, false memories are everywhere.
False memories are recollections of things that you never actually experienced. These can be small memory errors, such as thinking you saw a yield sign when you actually saw a stop sign, or big errors like thinking you took a hot air balloon ride that never actually happened.
