Fascinating, thanks. I am not sure what 'true' or 'false' means in this context. As you say, it's not a video capture exercise. Part of how memories are recorded is using emotional tags called somatic markers. So the bigger the emotional impact the stronger the memory (sort of) and where they are stored and how they are linked become part of the story of who you are. So I would contend that memories are 100% true, but it's in the act of recalling them and expressing them that distortions occur.
