According to experiments and research, its easy enough to create a false memory. That's what Alasdair Hopwood and the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit at Goldsmiths College are doing. They are creating an archive of fake memories.
Psychology professor Elizabeth Loftus at the University of Washington spent some time coordinating memories and experimented subjects with a look at a little book of life events, three their own, and one not. Each event recounted to the researchers by the subjects' relatives.
The fourth event, which was being lost in a shopping mall was created by researchers, and relatives only confirmed that the event had never happened to the subject before. Is it really that easy to perform an inception?
Memory is a surprisingly easy thing to manufacture. Alasdair Hopwood, an artist whose work has danced around memory in the past, put up a site called The False Memory Archive.
The Archive is still accepting stories, so just which ones will you be wanting as your own? If you want it in the first place.
