I wonder about that also.. You know when they hypmotize people they say they can go back and recall what they were doing at certain points of their lives that they would not recall otherwise so it makes me think that we hide it away and that we have to have the right prompt or cue the sweetie so to speak to recall the memory but with the right prompt that yes it may be there! I am just guessing but thats what I think may be indeed happening.. like memories induced by trauma and hidden too!. Same as your sweetie wrapper..
Thank you all for you very insightful and valuable answers.I still do wonder that in addition to the method of remembering, and the various influences that can affect our recollection, that the original true facts of that memory is still there..........I can understand that we may not remember the shape of words, but their meaning.....though I do wonder if the shape of the words is also remembered. Some people do have photographic memories.....maybe they have access to a route we don't. I also realise that these people maybe savants but it still does lead to the fact that it is possible.
The 'sweetie wrapper' memory was a bona-fide recollection. I remember the day quite well. Now, unless the whole set of events of that day are false then I have had an extensive mind-warp ! I have corroborated the days events with my mummy though. I can see that one might say that the sweetie wrapper maybe a memory that I have implanted there. Would the fact that I recall the car, (not our car !) the location, the weather , the road and the people serve to confirm the memory is real ?
