past time

Some experiences, some memories, some records of past events are best deleted.
No, I do not mean "forgotten" as I am using the term "deleted" in this posted train of thought. "To forget" might still mean "to repress" the memory beneath layers of other images, feelings and ideas. When a repressed memory gets sufficient external stimulation, it might re-surface, become unleashed and affect the thinker's present way of thinking. "To delete" accurately means "to erase" fragments that cause disturbances in the present. Is this scientifically possible? Can this be done? Will it have side effects? I have no answers for these yet.
Another possibility is "to replace" but the best option would be "to confront" and then "to process" and then "to resolve" until a favorable outcome, result or end-product is attained. Caveat: This is not psychology. This is just a passing train of thought.
The human memory has been likened to a computer's hard drive or a floppy disk wherein memory, character, habits, skills and knowledge can be programmed through inputs, education, training, thinking, learning and human experience. Hence, it was also thought that reprogramming and reformatting of the mind, deleting of data or files (memories) and editing of the human mind, were as "real" as performing such operations with a computer.
Such concepts would be interesting to many and they would certainly find them worth exploring, especially if one has an inclination toward psychology, sociology and other related disciplines or fields. One could also indulge on these thoughts about memory and the past, perhaps best during one's idle hours as another anti-stress pastime.
