1000 object major system

This is how the 2 card block system will work

This system is basically a way to convert the major system into cards. I summarized the shadow system that Lance created. Follow this link if you need more complete instructions or want to read the original. In that link there is also a way to quickly expand into a complete 2704 image list. This is a 2 card system, which means you encode 2 cards with only 1 image.

I will memorize cards in blocks of two, with each block being just one image.

Each two card pair will be matched with another one, one that has the exact opposite suits(For example 2h+8h will be matched with 2s+8h). Spades will be matched with Hearts, and Clubs will be matched with Diamonds. Black to red. This way, I will only require 1352 images.

There are 16 possible suit combinations, but because of that matching^^ there will only be 8 possibilities:
#:spades:#:spades: - S,Z,C #:heart:#:heart: - S,Z,C
#:spades:#:heart: - T,D #:heart:#:spades: - T,D
#:clubs:#:clubs: - K,G #:diamonds:#:diamonds: - K,G
#:clubs:#:diamonds: - P #:diamonds:#:clubs: - P
#:clubs:#:heart: - L #:heart:#:clubs: - L
#:spades:#:diamonds: - M #:diamonds:#:spades:- M
#:spades:#:clubs: - J,SH,CH #:heart:#:diamonds:- J,SH,CH
#:clubs:#:spades: - N #:diamonds:#:heart: - N

Number Cards(Ace through 10):
These will take up 800 out of the 1352 card pairs.
We will basically convert every card pair, for example 9c2d(9 of clubs-2 of diamonds) into a 3 digit number. Notice how each of the suit combinations above can be paired to a number. Two hearts or two spades make the same sound as the number 1. A spade and a diamond will make the same sound as a 3.

The suit combination determines the first digit of the three digit number we are making.

The second and third digits are simply the numerical value of the two cards. Ace is 1, 2 is 2, 3 is 3, 10 is 0.

The example above 9 of clubs and two of diamonds would equal the number 992. The first 9 is the combination of the suits, which is #:clubs:#:diamonds: - P. The second 9 is the first cards number, and the 2 is the second cards number.
992 is a baboon for me.

Notice that 992 could also equal 9 of diamonds and 2 of clubs. This is because that suit combination also converts to P, or the number 9. We will discuss how to differentiate which one it is later.

When the first card is a Queen or a Jack:
Because there are only 8 suit combination pairs, there are still 200 images that haven’t been used. These are 400-499® and 800-899(F,Ph,V). These will be used whenever the first card in a pair is a Queen or a Jack.

If a card pair begins with a queen, the suit combination will be represented by the second digit in the three digit number we are making. The first digit will be a R, second digit will be the suit combination(for example: #:heart:#:clubs: - L) and the third digit is the number of the second card. For example; Qh+10h would be RCS=400= Reeces

Same thing with Jacks, except instead of 400’s, Jacks will use 800’s(F,V,PH). Ie: Jh3d= 863= F,Sh,M= Fishmoth

If both cards are queen or jack, the suit combination is the third digit in the three digit number. For example: JhQs would be represented by 841= FRT=FiRe exTinguisher. QsQh= 441= RRD= Roared

Jack or Queen as only the second card in a pair:
When they are only in the second place, a Queen is still represented by an R(4) while a Jack is represented by a T/D. We will once again make 3 digit numbers, but will be adding a S to the beginning of each word. So each of these combinations will be (S)(Combination of suits)(Number of first card)(Either an R if it’s a queen, or a T/D if its a Jack).

We need to add the S to distinguish these cards from our normal numbers. For example, if we didn’t add an S, the combination 2sQh would be represented by the number 124, which is already 2s4h. If we add the S, this makes the image unique. Instead of 124=Toner, it is now 0124= Stunner

Kings
A king as the first card in a pair is represented by an H. It goes before the suit combination. All kings in the first place of a pair will follow this formula: (H,)(Suit combination)(Second card’s number). If the second card is a face card, it also goes before the suit combination, like this: (H,)(Face card, so H or R or T/D)(Suit combination).
Here are some examples:
Kd4h= HNR= Henry
KhAh= HST= Host/ Heist
KdQc= HRP(H is king, R is Queen, P is suit combination)= Harp
KsJs= HDS= Heads/ Hoods

If a king is in the second place in a pair, it is silent. It becomes simply a 2 digit number, dictated by the suit combination and then the number of the second card.
Examples:
9dKd= CB(C is suit combo, B is 9)= Cub/Cab
2hKh= SN= Snow/ Sun
QhKh= RS(R is first because face cards precede the suit combo)= Rose
JsKd= DJ= DJ/ Dojo

When there are two kings in a pair, it creates a short word that begins with H and ends with the suit combination. For example:
Ks/Ks = Hose
Ks/Kc = Hat

Tip: The number cards A-10 always go after the suit combination, whereas the face cards(J,Q,K) always go before it.
Again, see this link if you need more clarification.

PS: Lance recommends this: “It would be advisable to fill out your 3 digit numbers for 0xx, :heart:/:heart:, :spades:/:spades:, what ever you want to say with words that do not immediately have a consonant following the “s,” but a vowel instead. So for 011, “sedate” would be preferable to “state.” It’s not necessary to do this all of the time, but doing so will make things easier later.” This will help when you are later making your 4 digit images that start with 0, because you can easily find words that start with st, sn, sm etc. Follow the link for more info.

Tell me if I missed anything or if anything is unclear. Or you can also ask on the other thread.

Edit:
How to actually use the 1352 images instead of 2704.
I already see that I missed something. I forgot to mention how it’s possible to use only 1352 images in this 2 card system. Basically, each card pair beginning with a black card is linked to a card pair beginning with a red card. 2s7h is linked to 2h7s. KcAs is linked to KdAh. Spades are linked with Hearts, Clubs are linked with Diamonds. The image for 2s7h is the same image as 2h7s.

I will link blackfirst cards in a single locus until I reach a card pair that begins with a red card. When that happens, I move on to the next locus, and link red first card pairs until I reach a black first card pair, then I move on to the next locus. I do this until there are no more cards left. There is a degree of uncertainty in how many loci will be used, anywhere between 1 and 26, but it balances out, almost always between 9 and 16 loci.

I just have to remember what the last card pair began with, and I can reconstruct the whole deck. Or, I can always start with either locus 1 or locus 2, depending on whether the first card pair is black or red, and thus differentiate. Even if I forget whether the last card is black or red, I still have 50% chance of getting all of them wrong :slight_smile:

Edit again.
Lance pointed out that I failed to mention the rules about Face/Face card pairs. When a Face/face card pair occurs, the Jacks have to stay as F/V/Ph, they don’t change to T/D. Here is his exact comment:

Update 3/16/14
This is taking much longer than expected. Thankfully, there are only 100 still missing. They are only in these 3 categories:

300-399= 31 missing
400-499= 33 missing
600-699= 36 missing

I’ll try to get to maybe 50 missing, then just blatantly cheat on the rest. Then, I will divide all the objects into two categories, whether I can already visualize them or whether I need to find an image of them…

Still going to have to make those additional 352 images for the card system…

Long story short- I was mad for creating so few of the 800s images and decided to do another segment. I chose to do 600s, and after creating ~50 images I remembered that hard Gs now belong in the 500s column. So I moved those there, and decided to just finish up both 500s and 600s. I got 69 images in the 500s segment and 44 in the 600s segment. So today, I have a total of ~190/300 images created. Here are the 500-699:

UPDATED 3/7/14- Here is my completed 500 list, and updated 600 list. Thanks Lance for the hardest 9: 506, 533, 556, 558, 566, 568, 577, 585, 586

OP’d @ 1:58

Sorry guys, took a hiatus because of some personal stuff. I’m back though. Just completed 300-399, it wasn’t actually that hard. I took the example of simon L. as demonstrated here in using two words instead of one. That usually entailed just using the first two numbers for a word, then attaching something to it. An example would be the 390’s using mop or mob, then adding another word such as nails, machine, farm, bucket.
I’m planning on finishing the rest of the numbers I’m missing this weekend, because of this^^^ it’s a lot easier.

Update 2:10
Because of this technique, 9 out of the 10 words in 440-449 include either rare or rear.
Rare Steak
Rear Delt Fly
Rare Nike
Rear Mounted Snow Plow
RRR(Bull)
Rear Cargo Carrier
Rear Choke
Rear Lens Cap
Rear View Mirror
Rear Panel(Computer)

Also, only missing 46 now… Should take another half hour or so.

Update 2:22
Completed 400-499.

Update 2:55 !!!
Completed 600-699. All numbers 000-999 are now complete. Because of using this technique^^^ almost all the 100 numbers mentioned in the previous comment use 2 words. I feel 1 word objects are better, but this will work as well. Finally I’m complete with this. Of course, still have to make another 352 for the card system :slight_smile: But I can encode numbers now.

PS: If some word (Especially in the 100 mentioned in the comment above) does not make sense, or you have no clue what it is, Google image it.

Hi Bateman
The way you do it is slightly different from the way I do it. It should work fo you but it wouldn’t work for me because of the nature of the memory castles that I use. For example your mop bucket would have to represent # 939 in my system to work effectively. I would not recommend your approach to someone interested in my Less L. method.

All further info will be posted in my blog post 1000 Obj MS Cont’d.

How did the system work out in the end, Bateman?
