Scientists able to erase bad memories, sunshine awaits

Postby Chukkz » Tue Nov 02, 2010 2:50 am

http://kotaku.com/5678777/ I was just reading through this.

Condensed version, scientists found out how to erase a certain bad memory in the mind of a mouse and they say this can actually be used with humans... Is this a good thing or not?

I don't think so.. That could easily be taken advantage of.

On the other hand they could just treat phobias like that...

well its proven people renember bad memories better than good ones

thats cause imo they are used to teaching a lesson or warn us or something

f.e. if you had a bad memory of falling from a tree f.e. you will be more carefull and not try it again imo
so erasing them might be a bad idea

I love Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I had ideas of that at one point and it helped me get perspective on some past relationships at the time I first saw it.

No way in hell am I letting some random person near my memories. For all I know I'd end up brainwashed and spilling secrets.

I'm kinda sitting on the fence with this one...I don't like the idea, but see how it could be beneficial in extreme cases of PTSD.

It has serious potential for abuse though, which is one of the main reasons I don't support it. I'm not saying it would start out that way, but eventually you know it would get to the point of the vast majority of the population being mindless sheep who do as they're told by a small group of extremely powerful people.

Holy shit, these guys are actually trying to form the Illuminati!!! :shock:

It's sad that pretty much anything gets abused. :|

Yeah. Unfortunately there is really no way to stop that.
