Hi, I found this community on the internet. Hopefully I can learn some new memorization techniques, and better understand the ones I already use.
My memorization abilities are already pretty good, owing in part to a methodology that might be considered a little unorthodox by the standards on this site. I naturally developed this methodology through my experiences with tulpas. To briefly explain my experiences, my counterparts (tulpas) and I live together in an inner-world, which you might think of as an imagined place very similar to a memory palace. As a result of much meditation and visualization, our inner-world is very vivid and life-like.
The methodology I use to quickly memorize things is as follows: I simply write down what I would like to remember in the inner-world, on a piece of paper. To recall it, I simply look at that paper in the inner-world. In a lot of ways, it really isn’t like memorization. It is memorization in the sense that it is a functional way for me (the human organism) to take in information and be able to quickly recall it later, but to preform this does not feel like memorization to me.
Thoughtforms/tulpas is a pretty controversial topic in some circles, and many from those communities espouse very unusual beliefs. There is very little common understanding of methods and terminology among people in the tulpa community, so it might be hard for me to give very neutral explanations. I’m curious about other memorization techniques, and how to better understand the method I have come across on my own.
