Just a quick question that I hope some of you ‘out there’ have already worked through:
I am going to be learning 100s of verses from the Bible.
Here is my plan (including the question):
A memory palace for each book of the Bible with enough rooms (one for each chapter) and using the Dominic system to get the verse number. Finally the person will be doing an action that relates to the verse.
So here’s my question:
I have both Matthew 5:16 & John 3:16 to learn (for example).
Matthew 5:16 reads: ‘Let your light shine before others, so that they may see you good works & give glory to your Father in heaven.’
So I have Arnold Schwarzenegger (16=AS) shining a torch (flashlight for those of you the other side of the pond ).
John 3:16 reads: ‘For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life.’
So I have Arnold Schwarzenegger holding a globe with a heart on top.
So far so good?
But here’s my concern. Somewhere down the line, perhaps when I have many 100s of verses in various palaces, what is to stop my brain from mixing these two so that:
I have Arnold Schwarzenegger holding a globe for Matthew 3:16 (which would be wrong)
And I have another Arnold Schwarzenegger holding a flashlight (torch) for John 3:16 (which would also be wrong)
So in essence, the error is that the TEXT (verse) has moved to the wrong place - everything else has stayed the same.
Do I need a way of associating the verse directly with the room (and not just Arnold Schwarzenegger in this case) to stop this possibility from happening or perhaps replace the Dominic system with the Peg system and have an action that links the verse to the room in some way or is it just simply a case of this just won’t be an issue and won’t happen?
Thank loads for the replies and advice.
