QotD: Re-Written Histories

The "acceptance syndrome" inevitably occurs when over generations a people's history through crisis, has undergone a sort of splicing together at critical junctures where forged reality has been superimposed onto deliberately cut out segments that would otherwise provided us a consistent sequence of events. This incomplete historical version when fused back together negatively truncates what would have been the natural progression of an ancestral memory and through it inuninterrupted progresssive communal learning.
