Has REKALL rung any bells about Philip K. Dick?
From his short story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale”.
Let me quote Wikipedia:
Douglas Quail, a simple and ordinary clerk, wishes to visit Mars. Unable to afford it, he visits a company, REKAL (pronounced “recall”) Incorporated, which promises to implant an “extra-factual memory” of a trip to Mars as a secret agent.
True or not, I can easily draw some connections here.
