The mysterious death of a nurse brings to light an often overlooked problem: implanted memories.

At 9. 02am Richard Felstead answered the phone; by 9. 03am he was breathless with crying. It was the coroner's assistant in Battersea with the news that his sister, Carole, had died two weeks earlier. "I'm sorry it's taken so long to notify you," she said. "Carole's next of kin told us there was no family. But a letter was found – from you. "
'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Not really "false memories". Just schizophrenic delusions by inept people. False memories do occur especially in kids.
"In the adventure known as life, there are those who live it vicariously, and enjoy the ride from the safety of an arm-chair; and that's good. There are those who have a few chances to realize incredible and life-changing experiences; and though they don't repeat them, they carry with them a growth and personal philosophy for the rest of their lives. And there are those for whom a taste, is never enough; for whom the lust of adventure, is nearly insatiable. And if you add to that the overwhelming desire to create, and to share, then you get where I reside. For the end of one adventure, only signifies the beginning of another."

I understand that sometimes, some people do have horrible things happen that they repress or block out, and those memories only come to light through therapy. In those instances, it can be healthy to remember and overcome those memories.
That said, what a shocking case. Personally I don't think it's a case of repression, but rather a case of either brainwashing or mental illness. From the way the article plays, probably a combination of both.
Yes, I am a cynical and jaded jacknape. I try to see all three sides of the coin- do you?
