    The Illusions of Memory - The modern view of how human memory works and doesn't.

    I posted this not in regards to the content just as an example of how fallible the human brain can be and why "eyewitness" testimony shouldn't be used for criminal convictions with out being backed up by hard evidence, etc.

    Always nice to see more info on the human brain. Much to learn there.

    Thank you for posting!



    I cannot be blamed for what I say. So don't listen to what I write because I am clearly

    Please the psychology of those in politics have no bearing on the rest of us who don't live in a day to day world of lies & deceit. Everyone knows that to be in politics you have to be a mutant allergic to the truth and facts....

    Those are exact words channeled through me by the ghost of Hunter S Thompson as best I can recollect....

    researchers and psychologists have been studying human memory for almost 100 years now. and from day one it has been proven to be quite fallible for a number of reasons. cognitive bias effects the memory from the very beginning and in the transmission of information from person to person.

    bias heavily contributes to forming beliefs which then becomes accepted by the brain as "fact". beliefs control how information is sorted and filed in the memory. Everything we see, experience, think and feel is adjusted to fit with our beliefs. In other words, our version of reality is a creation of our beliefs. Our personal operating system disassembles and reassembles all input data to conform to what we believe.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living

    Sounds like you are posting about all the lazy video game zombies that don't train their minds.

    Like anything else you need to train for proper observation. I love scientific observation and I agree it can have bias but to say EVERYTHING is adjusted to fit with our beliefs simply is not true. Many times we receive and understand data that changes our beliefs.

    training can not override biology or a low level of intelligence

    You seem enamored with wide general sweeping statements.
