Hey there fellow mnemonauts,
I feel this should be included somewhere, maybe in a “welcome to the site” e-mail, or FAQ, or just something in the sidebar that displays a single post a day. This is of course, the very best of the posts on mnemotechnics/artofmemory. Only rule- You cannot post your own threads as the best(I’m really disappointed ).
For me, the most useful/interesting/awesome/helpful/ posts I have read on this site(in no order) have to be:
- Great explanation of multi-level memory palaces, it is not always very intuitive to think of it. It explains how you can use the very many mini-palaces that you have in your head to expand exponentially your normal memory palaces. It also shows some examples that many will find useful, like using movie scenes as memory palaces. Who would think of that?
On that note, r30’s post: Guide…movies/tv-shows…as memory palaces explains that specific method in much more detail.
Following with r30, his posts “r30’s Transformation Method” and “Behind->Front Technique” are very useful and show ideas you may not have thought of before. R30’s Transformation Method is a way to link object by transforming them into each other, as opposed to connecting them by events or whatever other method. Behind-> Front Technique explains why you should walk your journeys backwards, thus enabling you to link any pair of loci you have already passed through without having to turn yourself around. Because you can easily see all the “passed through” loci any time, you look at them more times and thus they stick better into your memory.
“Many useful tips…vocabulary” Is a post that contains… well, it’s pretty obvious what it contains. Very useful for people that want to memorize lots of vocabulary.
LociInTheSky posted “A New 2 Card System” detailing his inventive Shadow System, which can work using 1352 or 2704 images.
Lembran Sar’s post on “Remembering every day that passes” really inspired and Wow’d me. It’s such a simple concept, just remember one image a day. Easy enough, right? It still feels very amazing.
Achievements of the community can also be used for inspiration and as a demonstration of what these techniques can do.
I obviously missed some, you guys will probably fill in, I don’t have time to go over every post on this website(for the second time), I gotta run, I’ll update soon,
