Greetings, ladies and gents.
I am middle-aged schlub who’s reinventing himself to launch a new career.
I’ve known about memory palaces for years (pre-Sherlock!) but because of the field I’m moving in to, I could use one, I think, for the first time. So I’m here to start learning about how to build one (or more than one).
I’m basically a beginner, but I’m excited to learn from (and someday share that knowledge) with all of you.
Biggest challenge (yes I’m answering the suggested questions ) is visualization: being able to create vivid mental images to use in the memory map. Would love to learn more of that; most of my mental imagery is sort of dark and ill-defined.
My goal is to put together several palaces for some of the more important areas of my life: music, the law, and other nerd stuff. This represents my first attempt at a memory system.
I decided to join up here because you have a supportive, interesting community. Looking forward to talking with you!
