Is it wise to build two large memory palaces at the same time? This is a similar question posed in language learning: should I learn two languages simultaneously or only focus on one? I am working on memorizing the book of Romans (16 chapters), but I would also like to memorize Paradise Lost by John Milton. Are there dangers in taking on two large projects or would you recommend concentrating on one long-text until it is completely finished?
Comparing this to language learning, there are the dabblers, those who dabble in many foreign languages but only reach an A2 or B1 level in each. Then there are those who learn two or more languages at the same time, but confuse vocabulary or do not progress as quickly because one’s attention is divided. In order to have a full text in your mind and have the ability to recite it verbatim requires a lot of dedication and review. Do you foresee potential problems in creating two large memory palaces?
What is your approach? Do you work on two or more large memory palaces simultaneously or do you prefer to concentrate on one at a time? If so, why?
