I'm tired of reading non-fiction books and forgetting the contents in a week, or watching a crashcourse world history video and not remembering anything in 10 minutes. I want to use memory palaces, a memory city really, to store information on every subject I'm interested in. Have already started off by placing 10-15 great memory palace tips (from this very forum, in fact) in a memory palace based on the local library. I would like to create a truly enormous memory palace (agreed, it will take time to build). Biggest challenge would be memorising amazing little pieces of prose that I admire. Also want to store music, trivia, all the subjects I'm interested in, news from everyday of the year, language vocab, weekly to-dos and so on. Aside from simply collecting info I like, I am also preparing for a few competitive exams.
“…because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff… Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.”
