I love learning about the human mind
I remember reading somewhere that dejavu could be explained as your mind sort of live streaming a memory. Its a trippy though, a sort of computer glitch in the mind.
The more they learn about our memories is funny to learn how fallible they really are.
A friend of mine insisted on telling me a few years later a story about golfing. He supposedly threw a club under a bench and it snapped in half. I laughed and argued that I had thrown the club and broke it, what are you talking about? We had to call a third friend who was there to convince my fried it was not actually him. He was blown away by it, oh man I have been telling that story for a year or so. It was a really weird feeling
I think we experience false memories in many small details. Who could really remember small details. Our brains sort of just fills in what it considers unnecessary information to create a memory scene. So when people are asked to recall these small details they are very often unreliable.
Another side to this is eye witness accounts are losing credibility as well. The more dna evidence comes out and exonerates people Apparently there are plenty that were sent to prison on eye witness account only. No other solid evidence
One person described our memories as an ice cube of sorts. The more you think about them the softer and more malleable they become
