Round 1, fight!
Yes, I am currently at 666 digits of pi, and yes it’s also my second run.
The title is a little misleading since I only got to 546 digits the first time.
I started out by using my home as a memory palace, where i have 26 loci,
and ended up adding 65 loci on a journey outside to a total of 91 loci atm.
I use the major system in Swedish and have a 00-99 image system (100 images)
I memorized the pi digits in groups of 3 images, i.e 6 digits on each loci.
This resulted in having to recall them in pairs like 3. 14 15 92 (fourteen fifteen ninety two etc)
and I didn’t like the flow of that. (Yes i’m a total perfectionist with stupid details)
I wish I could’ve decided to change my method BEFORE i got to spot 91!
Round 2, fight!
So at 546 digits of pi I decided to completely start over with a 3-digit image system.
That way I can memorize a lot more by doing 9 digits per loci and also recall them in a nice flow like (3.) 141 592 653, so it actually sounds like counting numbers. I got the idea from Jonas von Essen, who also was kind enough to put up with all my questions.
But a 3-digit system requires 1000 images, so I decided to make them up as I went along and add them to Anki. So I started at the first loci with 141 592 653 and added Laban the friendy ghost jumping out of a cake, wearing a helmet.
I’m currently at spot 74 and 666 digits of pi. I will keep going to 91 and then we’ll see if I will create more places.
It’s a great way to add 3-digit images and still have fun, and I do want the complete 000-999 system at some point so I can step up my Memory League game!
I’m currently at 335/1000 images so I will probably have to start adding them manually, like 10-20 per day.
Anyhow, I hope I didn’t bore you to death if you’re still reading…
I’m hoping to end this round with:
"Pappamea wins. Flawless victory."
