    The forgetting pill: How a new drug can erase your worst memories (Wired UK)

    I HIGHLY recommend this article.

    Read the whole article, lots of pertinent and fascinating gems in there, including how application of emotional pain erasure may lead to erasure of chronic physical pain.

    scanned it--i can understand a link between long term emotional pain and it becoming ~transfered to being a physical pain
    real or perceived--pain is processed by the brain and it becomes real...

    linking this to self-help groups being an oxymoron
    or the relative worth of any psychiatric therapies
    ...rather go with

    at what point do memories form the person vs erasing that which disturbs you may diminish you

    but for those who have experiences so dramatic as to become all consuming of them;
    its sci-fi but, memory erasure may be--probably is--better than a life of diminished capacity
    cause the only way passed 'it' may be the exit door.

    many advances in science and medicine have had society to reexamine how it defines acceptable;
    what is ethical changes with what is possible.
    so a problem commen to 'new' possibilities is -- where to draw the line.

    its is easy to understand erasing the sight of body parts from a explosion...
    but when down the line will a shrink ssay its ok for his patient to forget a bad relationship?

    IMO, this line from the article is quite revealing and potentially useful to many:

    "Mitchell couldn't get the dead woman out of his mind; the tableau was stuck before his eyes. He tried to tough it out, but after months of suffering, he couldn't take it any more. He finally told his brother, a fellow firefighter, about it."

    Keeping secrets is a very self- destructive act. Most all of us do it to protect our self-image, to keep from embarrassing ourselves, out of worry about "what others will think" of us.

    Most of the time when we let a secret out we discover that the person we told just shrugs it off as no big deal, hardly pays attention, cares not the least about the thing we struggled with, and certainly doesn't view "the secret" as a powerful piece of information as we ourselves may have viewed it.

    "The Secret" is almost never worth keeping.
