In the sense that it might leave our active memories as easily as details of a novel’s plot or names of cities visited, knowledge of fakeness is not unique. A piece of fake music that we’ve encountered in the past might only be present in our sensitivity toward newer ones. But with any luck, some aspect of daily rote will jiggle such information loose from forgottenness long enough for us to notice and document it, as happened with our friend and sibling Bryce Wilner, who, we are pleased to report, remembered a fake piece of music used as a joke and plot point in the movie Proof (2005). We are pleased to present him as FMR’s second guest contributor.
