Will we delate bad memories from our brain?

Would be ethically accpeted? Would you do it if you have the chance. They are already conducting experiements, even in England for trying to erase bad memories expecially from rape victims. Althrough memories are what makes us some how. Do you find it acceptable? on the other hand rapes,phyisical violence and other horrible memories often interfere with the psycology of the person so finally this might be a cure for pepole who suffer from psycological stress from these events.

I spoke to a lady the other day who unfortunally was vicitim of similar violences and she said she would pay millions for such technology.

it would be nice to invent something just that dosent make think about it and therfore be virtually not exhistent.

It seems we don't even have much control over our own minds... which then leads even intention and your will and all your mental processes are caused by neural chemicals. Which throws free will out of the window. Which then leads to things such as identity, and classification are not distinguishable from anything else from nature.

Cant deep hypnosis be used to make you forget things? I know it can help break bad habits & adictions, also help get over depression - for some people anyway.

of course not everyone can be hypnotised.
