    It's called 'false memory' whether or not you want to include the
    'syndrome', and, yes, people can very well remember things that never happened and couldn't have happened.

    Memory is a dynamic process of the mind, not just a library of experiences, but one of the toolkits of the imagination.

    What you _were_ heralding, remember it or not, was the concept of
    'morphic fields', which are part of Sheldrake's lunatic explanation of nature.
