Would Jo's Pensieves actually work?

    Just as Miguel Alcuberrie proved Star Trek's Warp Drive is mathematically possible (physically possible? Oh... Ah... Hmm...) the on-line article titled Study: Your brain sees things you don't is about something that sounds similar to what Jo describes in her Pensieve scenes.


    University of Arizona doctoral degree candidate Jay Sanguinetti has authored a new study, published online in the journal Psychological Science, that indicates that the brain processes and understands visusal [sic] input that we may never consciously perceive. // Study participants' brainwaves indicated that even if a person never consciously recognized the shapes on the outside of the image, their brains still processed those shapes to the level of understanding their meaning.

    Another science bit

    Your post put me in mind of this which explains the how the magical gene could word. I admit I got lost pretty quickly but interesting none the less.
