Subject: RE: BS: Question About Aging and Regret(s)
Um, not quite scientists tell us that in order to keep some memories for a long time we access them so often that we usually change the details of the events . What we say is, there is no "accessing" but only re-creation, and *every* such creation involves changing the info you feel you are accessing.

Memory is a process rather than a photograph. A painting that is repainted whenever you try to look at it.
