The Palm Springs Movie – I Have a Science Question

I loved the new Palm Springs movie on Hulu. It’s a charming romcom with a twist on a familiar trope and even a little bit of ‘sciencey’ explanation. There are already a few articles discussing the quantum science of the infinite time loop which is the central plot of the movie. This one contains spoilers but has lots of good science so maybe read after watching. The question I had was this – in all the movies that contain a time loop on repeat, how come the protagonists always remember what’s happening? If everything resets, surely their brain would too? And if it doesn’t wouldn’t that be a hideous mental burden? Maybe a future plot could involve the main character unaware they are in a time loop and being saved by a time travelling quantum hero. Let me know if anyone out there may be in need of some quantum movie plot ideas 😉
