The idea that you can "heal" a patient by chemically lobotomizing them is, of course, entirely consistent with the core mythology of modern medicine:
In the case of memory-erasing drugs, scientists are reportedly working on a drug that would remove certain proteins from the brain's "fear center."
This is based on the ludicrous idea, by the
way, that memories are recorded solely by physical proteins in the
brain - an idea that's obviously based on an entirely outmoded
mechanistic model of the human mind and brain.
Hence the ongoing waste of billions of dollars searching for a cancer cure as if it were some sort of acquired infection.
But even she can see this approach could be fraught with danger:
They noticed this electroshock torture
resulted in the build-up of proteins in the brain's fear center (amygdala),
so now they've leaped to the wild conclusion that 'proteins =
memories' and therefore the way to treat fearful memories is to
chemically remove the proteins. (See
Calcium-Permeable AMPA Receptor Dynamics
Mediate Fear Memory Erasure).
That's one medical myth that has made Big Pharma hundreds of billions of dollars in cholesterol-lowering drugs that harm far more people than they help.
Memories are not merely logged in the brain with proteins. If they were, our skulls would be as large as houses, filled with proteins from all the memories of our lives.
In reality, memories are holographically recorded throughout the neural network of our brain
which also interfaces with the non-physical human mind - an

virtually the entire conventional scientific community has so far
failed to acknowledge because they ridiculously believe that they,
themselves, are biological automatons who lack consciousness).
These drugs could be used on political prisoners, of course.
someone speaking out against the government? Just arrest them,
diagnose them with some mental disorder such as
Defiance Disorder, then force-feed them drugs that erase their
It could be a powerful weapon in the corporate war on the people of our world - a war that's already being waged against peoples' bodies and could soon extend to their very memories.
Forget Bad Memories?

Do you have any bad memories? Traumatic memories come in all shapes and sizes.
Some are terrible gut-wrenching ones like being raped, beaten, or shot during combat. Others are based on the pain of watching a loved one suffer. Some memories hound us because we are responsible for someone else’s trauma, like the night one drove drunk and had a terrible accident. Still others are less intense on the posttraumatic stress disorder spectrum, like being bullied in school, or being dumped by the prettiest girl in class.
In general, traumas have a way of haunting us: they are unpleasant at best and debilitating at worst.
Wouldn’t it be nice if one could just
Huganir wanted to understand the connection between the memory of trauma and the sensation of fear.
He found that the amygdala (the area of the brain associated with memory recall) of the mice became flooded with a particular protein whenever the mice heard the sound they associated with electrocution.
This protein was strengthening the circuitry responsible for the memory and thus inducing fear and unhappiness in the mice. By removing these proteins, Huganir discovered he could erase the memory of the electric shock permanently.
The mice now had no reaction to the same sound that terrified them earlier: they had effectively forgotten the traumatic event. (For technical details, see here).
He believes that by having people recall their traumatic memories, doctors will have a chance to remove the proteins that accompany the recall, and thereby eliminate the memory altogether.
In other words, for a few hours of living through the memories of the trauma, therapists and drugs could together rid you of the noxious memory forever.
What relieves an individual is often not optimal for society, which can benefit from the deterrent effects of horror, guilt and remorse.
Also, preference for treatment should be given to sufferers of post-traumatic stress disorder, which is often the result of a threat to one’s physical and emotional integrity.
But one can easily imagine that people will not be satisfied with having such stringent definitions of what constitutes trauma to limit their access to memory erasing drugs.
We all have too much baggage not to want some relief from some of the unpleasantness of our past. As science races ahead and researchers like Huganir make unexpected and revolutionary breakthroughs, we’ll increasingly be faced with such difficult choices.
Have no doubt: thoughts such as the following will cascade through people’s minds when memory erasing prescription drugs become available:
The world is getting complicated…
