Issue:There are memory banks, some of them criminal in nature, some of them for protection purposes.

Minutiae:-Brain Banks(BB's) are invented as a place to deposit memories for either safe keeping, or to be retrieved by someone else with a password

initially, major wealthy criminal organisations, as well as governments, invested heavily in developing technology that replicates the human brain. Occasionally, a few governments who were influenced by illegal organisations, were forced to secretly work with them. Eventually, the goal was achieved and named Brain Banks. BB's were used to store information that was sensitive and deemed important enough to lock away in the device. Governmental planning, military intel, and information intended to be preserved, were all saved, and, with the right password, reviewed and transferred to other members in the government.
The government that invented it used it solely for only a short while, before the technology leaked. Other governments and large organisations were the next ones to utilize the knowledge; as they had enough money to invest in creating a replica of the device.
Eventually, a while after the technology leaked, companies made cheaper versions which were sold to individuals who were interested in retaining important information. Unfortunately, the cheaper versions were liable to become corrupt, or eventually lose data over time.



Issue: Criminal syndicates have invested in memory wiping technology to prevent memory from being an issue for a crime.

Minutiae:-surgically removing parts of brain to prevent memories[rarely used anymore]
-Altered BB's erase up to 5 days of memories

After failed attempts of burning victims, the mob bosses learned that they were unable to prevent memory transfers by damaging the site of the transfer.
The next thing they attempted, was surgically removing the hippocampus of new loyal recruits. The procedure of removing the part of the brain that transfers short term memory to long term memory is very risky, and the downside is that the individuals are unable to learn new things and have very short attention spans.
Although this procedure worked, it was very risky; and for that reason, the number of attempted procedures drastically reduced with the invention of Altered BB's.
After the invention of BB's, the criminal organisations illegally modified them to have the machine erase the subjects most recent memories. An Altered BB can remove up to 5 days of memories, before the memory is attached to the mind to strongly for removal.



Issue:Conflicts are caused by dissonance between memories.
-------------------permission from Arya. is this ok with you? since you have the policing topic---------------------
Minutiae:-Judges are appointed to account for, and correct memory dissonance
-standardized testing to identify individual strengths is mandatory for every person.


for serious incidents, memory judges decide who is more accurate; basing their judgement on physical evidence from the situation, as well as utilizing formulas to determine validity and accuracy of each of the witnesses memories.
Variables such as time(the time between the incident, and the recording of the incident), type of memory copied(visual memory V.S. Topographic memory V.S. Flashbulb memory V.S. Semantic memory etc. - compare this to the type that the individual is capable of remembering best) are weighted and averaged to calculate, with the highest probability of accuracy, of the true incident.
Once the quality of the memory is determined for each individual; the memories of all witnesses are combined and averaged with each other to produce one, 'true' replication of the incident in question.
To help; strict annual memory testing is adhered to by all citizens. This will determine what type of memory is strongest and most reliable in each individual.

It is also a common practice to see the tests results used in squabbles, where people are arguing over an issue that is not important enough to warrant legal action.

Hey blue!
I have an idea for a shock. Next time you play this with some friends, consider:

Everything that is visible to you, all of your surroundings within your eyesight, defines the extent of your 'reach'. You can reach out and attach your perceptions onto any visible object, as long as a line of sight remains visible between you, and your reach. 
While you are reaching, if something comes between you and your reach point, the connection is terminated, and your perceptions return to your body.
While reaching, you view the world as if you are at the location you are reaching to. You can see, hear, smell, feel and taste everything as if you are right there at the reach point.
For example, if you were walking down a hallway, you could reach out to the wall at the end of the hall. From there you could look around and see if anything was around the corner. Also, you could hold your reach and look back to watch yourself approach your reach point at the end of the hall.

Note: just because you can see one side of an object(like a car or building building) it doesn't mean you can reach to the other side of it. 

Additionally, you must retract a current reach before attempting to place a second one. No leap frogging.

Not sure about whether or not people should be able to identify other people's reaches. The game could be fun either way.
