Hi, I recently joined! My name is Jacob and have dove into the concept of mind palaces the past week or so. I was first interested in the idea a couple years ago after watching Sherlock. I’m glad I revisited the topic and hope to use memory techniques regularly. I started my journey by using my house to memorize the US presidents and where they were born. I was happy to see how well this worked and thought I could use this for Bible memorization. I have read many of the forms about this and have two questions remaining.
- I haven’t decided if I will use the Dominic or major system, but I want to have a PAO or PA system. I was thinking about assigning a person to each Book in the Bible, using the action for the chapter, and the object for the verse. The issue I’ve run into is when the verse concept or idea is spread over two or more verses. How do I create a mnemonic image for that?
- The second issue is how do I put the mnemonic images in my memory palace? I feel like it will be bulky to put the verse and the reference in the same image or story, but how to I connect the two otherwise. My palace is set up in 5 sets in each room. If I put them next to one another, won’t that connection be lost when converted to long-term memory?
