So we know that you can overwrite save data in a game but is it possible to do the same thing in your mind

If so how do you overwrite save data in your mind?

If mental save data can be conceptualized as memories, than I would imagine the key to overwriting them lies in repetitive exposure therapy. This is a similar method to how therapists treat PTSD for combat veterans: using the patient's description of the situation and environment to construct a mental scenario that the therapist then guides the patient through several times. It stands to reason that you could re-shape that memory with subtle suggestion tactics in this process.

If you want to forget a memory you do this.

First off you can only remember a memory once every time you remember it after that you arnt remembering the memory but rather the last time you remembered it.

As you continue to remember a memory but not apply that memory to anything a part of that memory is forgotten but not 100% gone.

So if you intentionally remember a memory every 6ish hours then intentionally modify the memory very slightly then u keep remembering the modified memory until the original memory is gone and replaced with modifications

This is also how you brainwash a person.

Scientists have shown that you have 2 copies of every memory in your brain. Short of brain damage/surgery there is no way to guarantee a memory will be gone forever. There will always be a chance that something will trigger your brain to retrieve the second copy at some point.

Yes/no

You can brainwash yoursef to make the prominent memory a false memory then set up brain triggers to avoid bringing up the real memory but it would take a year or two of dedicated daily brainwash to achieve this =\
