I remember reading in a school textbook many years ago about a woman who was given a picture of a soldier and was told to remember it well. A month later, she was shown that same picture, but she insisted that it was not the same picture: the soldier in the first pic was prettier and of a higher rank.
People I spoke to claim that I’m wrong about this and that I must have misremembered something, but wouldn’t that prove my point?
Anyway, do we have fake memories? And why?
