Value of Memories
Participants asked to sell specific episodic memories (e.g., first kiss) wanted astronomical sums per memory. I propose that one primary reason people value their memories is because they do not understand the reconstructive nature of memory. People believe memories make them who they are; the opposite is more likely true.
