The Era of Memory Engineering Has Arrived
Itâ€™s the premise of every third sci-fi thriller. Man wakes up to his normal seeming life, but of course it isnâ€™t. At first, just the little things are off â€“ the dog wonâ€™t eat and the TV keeps looping some strange video â€“ but whatever. A few cuts later, with only his granddadâ€™s rusty brass knuckles and a steely-eyed contempt for authority, our hero reveals a conspiracy that kicks up straight to the top. There were deals. Some blackmailing. A probe or two. But in the end, whatâ€™s most important is that everything he thought he knew was wrong. Because the scientists (Noooo!!) got to him with one of those electrode caps and rewrote his memory. Everything â€“ the job, the daughter, the free parking â€“ is a lie.
