source amnesia

“Eighteen percent of Americans think the sun revolves around the earth, one poll has found.”

Yikes. This article in the NYTIMES on “source amnesia” is really interesting. It discusses how we remember things and how susceptible we are to misremembering. Or how we basically re-write our memories every time we recall them, thus we are constantly altering our personal historical record of our experience

Makes you think. No really.
