reconstructed memories

Coincidence? Not likely.
"Scott Fraser studies how humans remember crimes -- and bear witness to them. In this powerful talk, which focuses on a deadly shooting at sunset, he suggests that even close-up eyewitnesses to a crime can create "memories" they could not have seen. Why? Because the brain abhors a vacuum."
Over thinking? Possible.

"All our memories are reconstructed memories. They are the product of what we originally experienced and everything that's happened afterwards.” (Scott Fraser)
