As aforementioned, writer Michael Waldron of Doctor Strange 2 gave an interview to Empire. There, among other things, he talked about the dark secrets behind the Illuminati universe. The head writer revealed:

“The funny thing about Memory Lane is that… It’s not in there, but my secret history of 838 is it’s a little bit of a police state. And you can see, everybody is dressed uniformly, it’s like a little bit of an Orwellian feel to it. Cause I was always like, ‘Alright, why does this Memory Lane thing exist?’ I wrote a bunch of what was essentially fine print that I do think we recorded, but it just doesn’t…

Michael Waldron then continued:

“You can’t quite hear it, but it’s like the guy is saying in the background, he’s like, ‘Disclaimer: Any memories of crimes committed or so-and-so can be admissible in a court of law…’ Memory Lane is really the state’s attempt to minority report you into admitting a crime you committed. That’s my dark secret about Memory Lane.”
