I meant to write this article much sooner however things have been quite busy over here in my world. This topic actually calls to mind a few different subjects that I will try to cover in the following post. If you have not read my first two articles on the Memory or Mind Palace this would be a perfect time to get caught up, they will be referenced lightly in the following.
This is a rather touching email I received regarding my articles and work. It is the messages like this that inspire me daily and keep me wanting to share everything I know with the world. Rather than keep my methods and secrets to myself as too many individuals in my profession, as well as related professions, do.
However, it also contains a burning question that I have recieved over two hundred times from around the world via emails, Twitter & Facebook. This question is being answered in one of my favorite articles yet that will be out within the next couple days.
Some people are fine with memorizing a grocery list, some of us like to take things deeper than that. Some of you only need to create more ‘pegs’ to objects within your current memory palace while some of you will be ready to develop new palaces and link them together to form this labyrinth of instant access to vast amounts of information. Whether you want to memorize vast amounts of information for school exams, figures and stats for your job, maps all the way to super human math systems; or just remember the playing cards that have been played in a game, at some point you’re going to want to dive into your memories and expand your palace and create new ones for specific purposes. Let us begin that process now.
Most of my fellow Americans will be watching the BBC’s SHERLOCK Series two finale ‘The Reichenbach Fall’ for the first time Sunday evening. However those of us that have already been subjected to the brilliant psychological torture that creator Steven Moffat and co-creator Mark Gatiss put us through will be waiting wthl devilish anticipation to watch millions of viewers go on the same, incredible ride.
Arthur Conan Doyle was on the right track when he attributed his fictional consulting detective‘s ‘mental powers‘ to be the result of a well-organized ‘memory attic‘ system. While the ‘Memory Palace‘ system that is widely employed today isn‘t necessarily associated with Sherlock Holmes with the exception of the BBC’s “Sherlock.” I believe the above quote should be given the credit it deserves. Now, let‘s get on to what the Memory Palace (or Method of Loci) actually is. This is going to get historically deep for a moment, but then we will break it down so you can create yours, NOW!
