Memory Palaces For Reverse Lookup
In calendar date calculation you have the option of storing your Major System images 00-99 in seven different memory palaces to avoid calculating the step for the year code.
Each of these palaces then represents a number between 0 - 6 (Sun, Mon, etc.) and for each palace you’d use a location that reminds you of that particular day. For example, Sunday reminds you of relaxing in your garden and Monday reminds you of the office.
Unlike a regular palace you are not really interested in traversing the information in each of the palaces. All you wan’t to know is the location that you’ve placed a particular number, to then determine which of the seven palaces you’re in:
Oct 1, 2040
40 = RS = Ross from Friends who you’ve placed at the coffee maker in your office… there you go… he’s in your Monday memory palace and thus the answer is 1 for the year code*.
*Answer to the date is also Monday by the way because the rest equates to 0
The difference here is, that you are not really interested in what’s going on in the palace itself… the numbers before and after 40 are 35 and 57 respectively; however, that is completely irrelevant to what you are interested in.
