Reusing a memory palace

  • Have a "go to" journey, but otherwise have quite a lot of different ones and rotate their use
    • From different POVs, for example as your cat might see it
  • Interference shouldn't be a problem if the journey is used for wildly different datasets
  • To erase, imagine the locations empty
    • Or destroy the things with fire, explosions, etc
      • Some people find this reinforces the images themselves and therefore is counterproductive
    • Or replace the things with white spheres or sth similar
  • Imagine the same location with different "themes", for example in hyperbolized winter/autumn
    • "snow-covered lumberjack"

General

  • OK for near-short-term information (speeches etc), for long-term stuff Anki or associations
  • After a couple of walks the information should be remembered without the Palace

Creating palaces/locis

  • Create quite a lot of them
    • From different POVs, for example as your cat might see it
      • Floor-level, eye level and ceiling-level
    • Imagine the same location with different "themes", for example in hyperbolized winter/autumn

Remembering exact numbers

  • Mark every 5th or 10th location
  • Use anything, number shape system or Major system
    • Put candle at location 10, swan at 20, etc etc etc
  • Think this better so it does not interfere with the Major system
  • Think of a "Meta" character?
