Some say facts are clear, while others realize facts are facts and they don't tell the story. Wikipedia is a valuable resource, but the last one out has the final say in a story where a collection of facts muddies the truth. History is in the eye of the beholder. Those who remember are likely to have a different perception of history.
The difference between long and short term memory is the process of mylenation. Mylenation is a fatty coating along a neural path which freezes a thought in place. The fault in this process is false memories. False memories allow the fish to grow a little more each time the story is told. False memories can be corrected, but it requires mental exercise.
The Do Good Gauge is a process for public authorship. Unlike Wikipedia, each person owns their story. Others assist an author by applying associations. The stories written on the Do Good Gauge start from perception and derive through memories. Association provides the means to steer memory in the direction of truth. Association is a method for a group to compare memories. Through this comparison process the perception of history is broadened and validated for accuracy.
The Do Good Gauge is based on a process of refinement. The centring point is an essay. An essay will consist of one or more chapters. A chapter is a more granular thought similar to a long term memory. The community applies association at the chapter level. The author utilizes the associations to build substance and accuracy in each chapter thus restoring and sharing the memory of the past.
