I read over it and feel as if it has a few problems.
- does not seem to adequately address how to have a sequential aspect to the street, sidewalk, home part. How do we not get homes mixed up and how do we go from one to the other? I have no way of keeping each (land unit) in order
- I do not feel as if the explanation provided is an adequate representation of what Gary probably done. Not due to either Gary for the translators fault but I feel until Gary finishes the explanation on his website we might be left in the dark(i saw he has some videos on youtube, I have not viewed them yet)
I do like the FACEs technique and the clock face 4 spot loci but Honestly after reading through it several times I could not get the gist of what he was saying.
For all practical purposes of life memorizing text verbatim is not highly useful. I would love to be able to do it but for most useful careers and hobbies I would first learn the other usual techniques first.
I think the verdict is still out on the GL system
PS- I read the description from the pastbin post in 2015, not Garys actual. I just do not feel like this system is universally useful for most people. The post above by Josh, linking to Bateman has a lot of good techniques for memorizing stuff and one for verbatim. I hate to say it though ,the human mind is not good at memorizing things verbatim and It is much easier and more useful to understand the meaning behind each grouping of words then it is to memorize a bunch of specific ones.
Memorizing something word for word poses the paradox making it very difficult to translate everything into images. It seems as if it is the only system that requires us to code filler words such as: is, and, but, or, etc, when we could so much easier just memorize the meaning behind each sentence, which allows us to put words into function, even if we cannot recite them verbatim. Its just a waste of encode filler words and defeats the purpose of memory techniques
