    1. Makes for an interesting debate. Perhaps the only unique element is the visualisation. I’m convinced the rest of the procedure is a routine frequently practiced unfortunately.


  1. I confess that I am not totally clear on this one.
    I am confused by ‘wizened’, and like others above not sure if he is being saved or trapped.
    But intriguing stuff, I get the feeling that more words might develop an excellent piece.

    1. I liked the dichotomy between a child and a wizened (shrivelled or wrinkled with age) man being or feeling weakened and defenceless. My intention was trapped but you’re right he could have been in the process of being saved. I appreciate (as always) your feedback.


      1. Laughing.
        I understood the meaning of ‘wizened’, but not its relevance to the story.
        It was just one more layer of confusion for my feeble brain.
        Let’s just blame Graham, okay?

  2. As always with new inventions, this could be a blessing or a curse. Just think of people with dementia regaining their memory. And on the other side of the spectrum, dissidents, protesters, captured, being forced to betray their friends through this. A very scary and intriguing scenario.

  3. What a great scene you set of a terrifying technology. Even if it could be used in positive ways, my guess is that it would be used to self-incriminate people for all manner of infractions. Having your own memories used against you would be awful!
