Hire Writer Overall, the criticisms of the trace decay theory are that we cannot physically see the trace so it is impossible to prove, neither can we test to see whether information has permanently faded away as it might just be that we cannot remember the information at that point in time. Also, this theory can be seen as more of a prediction than a theory as there is not much evidence to support it. And information is not always forgotten despite not being revisited often, which shows that not all memories fade away.
By Terri Schwartz Full spoilers for Westworld continue below. Exit Theatre Mode The two biggest early theories of Westworld were that Bernard was a host and that there are parallel timelines unfolding through Season 1.
While some of the finer details of those theories remained unconfirmed or denied -- Is Bernard a Host version of Arnold? Is William the same person as the Man in Black? Dolores is spiraling, and something has caused her to be unlocked so she can see across multiple timelines.
As she walks through Westworld, she sees events playing out in the past and, seemingly, the present.
Dolores sees it in the past, like she has before in other flashbacks, and we learn that she seemingly is responsible for the shootout she keeps remembering. Considering we know the town is dug up, how can she actually see it in the primary timeline here?
She is fully starting to question her reality, and we should too. We learn a lot more about Maeve than we do about the Man in Black through his backstory.
Her repeated flashback to him murdering her and her daughter was his way of testing just how pure evil he could go, but for her it was the moment that she first became truly "human," as MiB called her.
Not only did she attack him, but when she was presented to Ford and Bernard she begged to keep her memory, and even then killed herself after.Check out Dispersion by Trace Decay on Amazon Music.

a) The trace decay theory argues that memories become less available over time as our brains create a path or ‘trace’ to each memory which, if we don’t rehearse it, will fade away and we will no longer be able to remember it anymore.
Trace decay theory states that forgetting occurs as a result of the automatic decay or fading of the memory trace. Trace decay theory focuses on time and the limited duration of short term memory.
This theory suggests short term memory can only hold information for Author: Saul Mcleod. Decay theory proposes that memory fades due to the mere passage of time. Information is therefore less available for later retrieval as time passes and memory, as well as memory strength, wears away.
When we learn something new, a neurochemical "memory trace" is created. However, over time this trace slowly disintegrates.
