Final Entry: Memory

One concept that I think I will remember 5 years from now is what we learned about memory. I found it very interesting that over time if you tell yourself something happened one way your memory will be that that is exactly how it happened even if it actually happened in a totally different way. This is something that I have encountered many times. Anytime people argue about the way things happened everyone has a little different because through time that is the way that you remember it and that is the way you will always remember it now. You could tell someone that completely wrong story of something that happened to you because through time you have almost formed a new memory through continuously saying something happened one way, when it could have happened in a much different way. Now anytime I have an argument or conflict on remembering how something happened when with a group of friends I will remember this concept. Its almost a little scary to now think when that happens none of us will really know what the real story is because who is to say we don't all have the wrong memory that is just one that we have formed to make it better?
