Confusion between PAO, Dominic and Major

Hello guys!

As a new member, it is often tricky to distinguish these 3 concepts.

I was under the impression that the Dominic and Major systems were used to creating a list of people/actions. And then PAO was used on top of each of these 2 systems to add an extra object.
But I find many posts of people asking which of the 3 systems should be used. Isn’t PAO just an add-on?

The Dominic System and Major System are ways to convert numbers to images. Person-Action-Object is one method of placing images in a memory palace that can be used with either the Dominic or Major System (or another system).
