I won't comment on this specific case, but the principle you outline is correct. We are constantly changing and reinventing our past. Every time we remember something, we change it. Every time we visit our memories, they evolve. We make them stronger than they are, or not. That is what enables us to change our past and free ourselves from trauma through emotional catharsis.I watched an interesting video and it somewhat relates to this topic.
I've always thought of Woody Allen as a creepy, evil guy who made great movies. Turns out, the child molester thing was a lie perpetuated by the media.
Two courts, doctors, and police officers found him not guilty. There was no physical trauma on the child, the child's first report was not consistent with the claim, and Mia Farrow has a history of crazy antics.
But the reason I thought of this thread is because of Dylan Farrow. IF there is no proof that she is molested, which this video seems to prove, then her memory of the trauma was fabricated and believed as real.
Because of her mother's suggestions and the world telling her that she was hurt, she believed it as truth. If so, then she IS a victim but of a different crime.
It's a bit off-topic to this thread but it makes me think of how unreliable our memories can be.
As mentioned by @mon_fi , psychologists believe the past is the bedrock, the foundation of who we are. But what if the past is not as concrete as we thought it was?
