As you probably saw from the title, this is a memory theory regarding the topic of whether or not it is possible to remember every single day of your life. This is a theory I have though of for a long time and I thought it would be a good idea to share my ideas and views and to also listen to other’s input theory. With that being said I would like to move on to my theory right away. NOTE: i might not have been the first person to come with this theory so I am not by any way saying that I have developed this theory on my own. I am simply saying that I have been thinking about it for quite a while.
Based on the amount of thinking and thought put into this theory so far, the only possible way for someone to actually remember every single day of their life is to create memory palaces. Multiple of them. One memory palace per day. Then you would have to divide your day into multiple sections and seperate them into hours. What i mean by this is, since there are 24 hours in a day, you could divide the day into 24 parts, each part holding the value of 1 hour. then you could list everything you have done in that specifc hour in that specific part. Repeat this until every hour and minute of your day is all written down and catagorized by parts. this step will be easy if you are the sort of person that schedules their day beforehand and actually stick to the schedule cause then you wouldn’t have to write down what you did in that specific hour. You would already have it in your schedule. Note that you don’t have to divide 24 hours into 24 parts. You can divide the 24 hours however many times you like. For example, if you have a three hour class, and assuming that we divide the day by 24parts, you wouldn’t have to waste 3 parts of your memory palace just for the three hour class. You can just have one part of your memory palace that just has the value of 3 hours. So effectively manage your day and divide the day into parts that you deem reasonable to effectively use test this theory out. you can repeat this process for each day, assuming that each memory palace= one day. Now after a few days, maybe a couple of weeks you find yourself with about 7+ memory palaces which will be very complicated to manage and you might easily forget some of the details in your palace. i think that this problem can be solve if you just write down the contents of each palace in a diary to keep track of all the palaces you have created for each day, then you could review these palaces from your diary and kind of refresh your memory. eventually if this becomes a habit, you will realize that these memory palaces become more and more familiar and it might be forever be in your memory. Do this day by day, week by week, and you might find yourself in the future remembering every day of your life!
please note that this is a THEORY. I am not actually saying that this would actually be possible for everyone. I am just simply disscussing THEORETICALLY whether or not my theory would work. I do understand that this theory is not completely stable and has a lot of issues but please make sure to comment on this post and write down your opinions on whether or not this would be THEORETICALLY possible and such.
I feel like the purpose of me writing this and telling you about this theory isn’t to sort of inform you or try to teach you something about memory. In fact, I am probably very inexperienced and bad at using memory palaces than most of you reading this. The reason why i posted this is because it is something that is very fun to think about and disscuss. I hope that you can take a break from this busy day to talk about this theory and share your ideas!
I know i wrote a lot so if you are still here reading this, i want to thank you for giving your time for me. God bless you and be safe!
