Great analysis, Dave. This does a much better job at what I was trying to articulate in a previous comment, how we may THINK it’s a positive to be able to erase negative experiences, but in so doing, who knows how we will change? For the better or worse? Moreover, as you say, that is an essential part of our identity, so by excising that from our consciousness, what do we lose? Again, excellent point.
