I thought the flash drive thing wiped away all of his life and then plopped him into PC 5 years ago with "how many years of Jason's life?" -- so all he has in his current memory are these last 5 years?
He'll never get back all his lost years?
Have I not been paying attention???
They wiped all of Drew's own memories and replaced them with all of Jason's memories up until 5 years ago. And since then he has made his own new memories over the last 5 years. If they reverse the procedure and replace the Jason memories with his old Drew memories, then he'll lose all of Jason's PLUS the 5 years of new memories he's gained since then. He'll be back to Drew 1.0 but missing the last 5 years of his life. Or so the theory goes.
Every time we talk about this, at some point I remember that we're trying to make sense of a nonsensical story and can't believe we're even trying.
