No, actually the opposit. Because one does not remember, illusion comes into being again and again.
Also we can see that when our mind established in the present moment, he dont know nothning, he is pure of memory, experiance, he is no more conditioned by past experiance and future wishes based on pasts experiance.

its not really helpful to squash Buddhas way into a construct out of "science, psychology, different traditions". Its much better to give away one and addopt the new.
There was an occation where a follower of another sect wanted to join the Sangha. Buddha refused and told him to get free of his old ideas first. Its better to empty the way of thoughts from trash and incomplete things first and only after that take the new perceptions which are required to walk the way. Riding on two vehicles at the same time might be hurtful and risky.
You need always support
To give away the old intelectual possession is sometimes the most difficult "letting go".
