What is the consequence of not complying? Well it would result in being infinitely cloned and paraded on a billboard in front of my home forever.
Lets consider deleting people or place, there is no point in trying to erase the past simply because it does not fit into the present, after all the past is a great place and I do not want to erase it or regret it, neither do I want to be its prisoner though. We all have dark times in our lives that we wish we could erase but all of life experiences good and bad make us who were are erasing of life’s experience would be denying parts ourselves.
Lewis . B. Smedes got it right when he forgiveness does not erase a bitter past, and a healed memory is not deleted memory. Forgiving what we cannot forget could create a new way to remember, maybe change the memory of our past into a hope for our future…?
this would not erase a memory but may be it lays the emotions surrounding the memory .
that would be a worthwhile deletion, emotions that surround the memories, so that only the memory in its unfettered form stays behind.
