I am putting together one of my memory palaces–in this case, a building that helps me remember names and faces–and in the course of “construction” a question arose.
To be short about it, one enters the palace, and inside I have rooms dedicated to different groups of people - family, acquaintances, people at my daughter’s school, and work.
Taking the work room as an example: When I open the door to this room, I enter a hallway that leads to many offices. When I enter the office for a particular person, I see them behind their desk. I add facts, etc. to the office.
So far so good. But…
The dimensions I’ve established for the overall palace in my minds eye are violated by the spatial arrangements of the office room. Simply put, the palace as I imagine it from the outside is too small for the spaces within.
I’m curious if anyone out there has had a similar situation with one of their palaces, and if so, did it matter at all? If it did, how did you “fix” it?
