"Memory Theft": can it lead to "trading point of view"? Not quite identity theft

I’ve talked about identity theft a lot here, but what about something lower level, memory theft?

That occurs when some tells someone else’s story as if it were theirs and may actually think it happened to them (particularly with sexual or intimate events).

Psychology Today had a revealing article by Ira Hyman, Ph. D., on April 28, 2015.   This concept is possibly relevant to my novel in development, “Angel’s Brother”.  And in my screenplay Ephiphany I propose that people can share accounts telepathically through special brain reading software controlled by an “outside auditor” character who decides the permission levels for other characters on the space ship.  

Short film by Ollieread is called “Remember Me #3” based on a game.
