When I was five or six, I remember my parents taking me to a fourth of July fireworks display at the football field of Randallstown High School. That is the earliest memory I have. However, If I were to go to court and put my hand on a stack of bibles, I'd swear I remember getting my head stuck in between the bars of my crib. Problem is, I was only two months old at the time and couldn't possibly remember the event. It has to be that I heard my family talk about it so many times, and show me pictures, that I internalized it as my memory. Now that I'm older, when I tell the story, I can't help but to add details, that may or may not have happened. Something along the lines of "Big Fish." Remarkably, your brain reconstructs your memories - all the time. Please listen to Scott Fraser's TED Talk [about 20 minutes] from November 29, 2013 and comment below.
