Tampering with people’s minds is also somewhat far fetched. After
doing some research it appears that safe memory erasing either does not exist oris not available to the public. In the movie, t

Too much tampering will lead tobrain disorders and malfunctions sending the whole body into a state of disarray.Speaking with an expert, I learned that while it may be possible to erase certainmemories, bringing them back in perfect condition is most likely impossible, at
