I somtime wonder if i completely have misunderstood the ways other describe their system for learning numbers. As an example this chart confuses me:
As my PAO system is a 2-digit system i need loci for 100 different numbers (00-99). I could place more than one number (not digit) per locus but prefer one number per loci (this way i can always see my palace from above as a map with numbers.)
The locus were i have placed my image for a specific number, actually hold a 3-in-1 image. 43 becomes the image corresponding to 434343 until i pick the part i need.
43: “Arnold Schwarznegger shoots Terminator”
49: " Al Pacino smells a Woman"
66: “Cristopher Columbus sails to West India”
I must learn 434966:
- I see the image for 434343
- I replace “shoots” with “smeels”
- I replace "Terminator with “West India”
- I add effects to make “Arnold Schwarznegger smeels West India” memorable.
But i still only think of my system as 100 images for 100 numbers in 100 loci. I’ve always thought that i did the same thing as everyone else using PAO, but now im not so sure.
