Scientists can now erase memories or add new ones.
This is bloody terrifying.

If they could erase the shameful memories I have that give me excessive restraint they would create a monster of uncontainable charisma and enthusiasm.
>>
Pretty sure the unabomber wrote something about this possibility.
>>
>tfw the scientist accidentally presses ctrl+a before deleting
>>
Oh shit it's fucking happening son
>>
Don't you guys know what this means? You could erase all your robot memories and get normie memories instead, and transcend into normiedom. I think this is the beginning of something great for all of us. We will be free soon.

So a normie then?

What if they accidentally erase a good memory?

I have very few and I want to hang onto them.
>>
>>26445835
no you don't. any good memories you have are far outweighed by shit. take the chance at a fresh slate
>>
>>26445750
well
not quite
there's a bit more to neurology than memory
your experiences causes a change in your neural development, for example neglect decreases hippocampal density, other learned behaviors can also have an effect on the physiology of the brain and the expressions of certain receptors in certain regions.
these changes in brain structure are the main influence of interpretation of new stimuli and reaction to it, thus behavior.

so you might still be insecure after losing all your negative memories, you just wouldn't have any idea why

Good memories are worthless.

They're one of the only things that keeps me moving forwards.

It seems we'd still our robotic propensities due to our bodies and current brains. Altering memories =/= altering genetics. Perhaps those damaged psychologically by traumatic memories could be benefited, but they must be a minority in /r9k/.
Other psychological issues aren't necessarily attributed to memories.
>>
>>26446012
Exactly. If you didn't have them you would stop struggling pointlessly like a fish in a net and instead enjoy your last few breaths before your eyes go dim.

You think anything to do with the personality, except maybe minor situations or decisions that might end up screwing you over have to do with the shape of the brain?
>>
>>26446123
I've never drank anything less than 80 proof... I try to keep going until I can't think straight. Don't want to do so much I pass out though. Might as well go to sleep at that point.
>>
>>26446172
Yes. This is evident due to my own condition (ABI).
>>
>>26445750
No. Trauma is a woman meme. It has no effect on me because I enjoyed the attention even when negative tqbh. It is the lack of attention that creates the angst of a robit.

what's that?

Acquired brain injury, due to an ischaemic stroke during my adolescence. It's what ultimately had rendered me a robot.
Such brain injuries can be acquired by other means, such as alcohol related and tumours.
It's learned to be lived with, but ultimately the damage has been done. The altering of memories would change nothing in these cases unfortunately, as there's dead brain tissue.
>>
I'm sure erasing a bad memory is not gonna erase the psychological damage that came with it. You'd still be a nervous beta you just wouldn't know why.
