comment Can changing attitude cure depression?
You would have to keep the attitude change for an extended period of time, which is really hard in depression. My experience suggests that next morning a person would "reboot" back into depressive state.

comment Why past events reappear in dreams after a certain delay?
I'm aware of memory consolidation, and would expect it to happen on the next night, maybe 2 nights from the event. The phenomenon I'm talking about takes 4+ days and I find it hard to believe that a memory of some trivial details could be lingering around the brain for so long before being consolidated.

comment How long could Henry Molaison keep his memory of the present?
Not sure about short term memory, I think of that one as remembering a sequence of digits, not like "remembering who you are talking to and where you are an what time of day it is"

comment Is there difference between a memory of a dream and memory of waking experience?
I've looked up episodic memory, and the two seem similar. Surprisingly, the article says nothing about the action recall in episodic memory en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Episodic_memory
