* In one ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' book, they visit the [[ProudMerchantRaceGuy Iskoort]], who have a booming trade where people have their memories copied and then sold to others for entertainment. They use the money from selling their own memories to fund everything they need (helped by the fact that Erek, who has [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld several millennia]] worth, is with them). This technology also proves valuable in finally defeating their enemies and striking a major blow against [[CosmicHorror Crayak]].

* In ''VideoGame/BioShock1'', it's revealed in an audio diary found near the beginning of "Arcadia" that the visions seen throughout the game are from the genetic memory of any person whose ADAM was extracted (by the Little Sisters) from their blood to be recycled after they died. Those who splice up with the ADAM (including the main characters, Jack and Subject Delta) end up getting some of these memories with it, experienced in the form of seeing such "ghosts".
