Has anyone tried using your creativity to create a visualisation that actually makes sense, not just for the sake of memorability?
I’ve been reading posts from people who try to apply memorisation techniques to study whatever subject they’re studying (medicine, science, history, so on…) and they mention that memorisation is sort of like a permanent but sort of a short-term solution, since it does not make connections to related real subjects and instead solidifies itself in your brain via unrelated images, thus you have to find those random images in random locations takes time.
I would instead like to learn to use spacial visualisation, transformation, interaction and story methods in a way that makes sense. Which would, of course, be less memorable, but like natural memory, would require more repetition, but would be much more versatile and faster, and very practical in everyday tasks. I’m trying to figure out how that would work. But one thing I would like to do is to create imaginary loci in my head before memorisation, and only use real locations or pre-existing virtual location if the subject of memorisation os actually related.
For example: to memorise recipes I would only imagine food transformations, the related loci would only be imaginary or only in my kitchen or within the layout of the store where I buy them.
Also, I was trying to create a new system for numbers that would be logical, like how numbers relate to each other and what they represent and most common uses of them instead of using the major system.
Idk, this is kind of a bit too much for me to discover myself as I’m a noob still, but maybe you get the picture of what i’m after. any related material would be greatly appreciated.
sorry for incoherent thoughts
