Personal Control over Memories

In an imagined future of London, citizens all across the globe are connected to the Feed, a device and network accessed constantly through a brain-computer interface. Tom, the son of the Feed’s creator Lawrence, realizes that his father had deleted some of his childhood memories from the device in his brain, thus Tom has lost all access to them. For further insights into technology and the nature of parent-child relationships, see the narratives “Marie and Sara Parts I and II.”

Digital Cloning

In an imagined future of London, citizens all across the globe are connected to the Feed, a device and network accessed constantly through a brain-computer interface. Tom, the son of the Feed’s creator Lawrence, realizes that his best friend Max is a robot of sorts, posing as a human. In reality, the body in the tub is a host which contains the digital consciousness of Max, formerly uploaded to a cloud through his feed and then downloaded into this new body. The new version of Max debates with Tom about why he should be considered a true human being.

Augmented Communication and a Post-Privacy Era

In this imagined future, citizens interact with the world and with each other through brain-computer interface devices which augment reality in ways such as sending each other visual messages or changing one’s appearance at a moment’s notice. Additionally, with this device, everyone can automatically see a “ranking” of other people, in which Alphas or As are the best and Epsilons or Es are the worst. With all of these features of the devices, privacy in its many forms is all but outlawed in this society.

Digital Memory Erasure and Brain Mapping

Joel Barish recently broke up with Clementine, his girlfriend of two years, in a brutal argument. After discovering that she has used a procedure known as Lacuna to erase him from her memories, Joel decides to undergo the same procedure to forget that he ever knew Clementine. The procedure uses a brain-computer interface to map the areas of Joel’s brain that are active whenever he has a memory of Clementine, first when he is awake and using associated objects to perform active recall and then when he is asleep and subconsciously remembering her. Despite Joel’s eventual regrets and desperate attempts to remember Clementine, the procedure is successful, and he forgets her. However, Joel and Clementine reunite in the real world after their respective procedures, and as they have a fresh start, they end up listening to Clementine’s tape from before the procedure where she dissects all of the flaws of Joel and their relationship.
