The Goldfish Guru is a happy fish. Due to his bad memory he forgets that his daily routine consists of swimming in a tiny glass bowl day after day.

If there was a technology that could erase people’s bad memories would that make people happier?

Is it the bad memories or their current difficult situation that are making people unhappy? Or both?

If it is the bad memories that caused the person to be unhappy in their present situation, can the erasure of the bad memories improve the present situation?

So many question, and so few answers…

One of the keys to happiness is a bad memory.”-Rita Mae Brown
