Old, forgotten Memory Palace


Hi,
Today I remembered a Memory palace I used more then a year ago in order to remember key elements of a weekend of partying with occasional friends and new acquaintances.

If you had similar experiences, I'd love to hear about them!

Today, I wanted to use the same Palace for work, and realized I still saw the images I put there:
- a skateboard, a guitare and a fan in a pile
- a lot of blur and blanks (half the time)
- Lisa Simpson parking un a toy car
- A Chinese restaurant's buffet
- A giant tire
- A room full of Jungle-rope( forgot the name)
- Patrick Stewart as X-Men, looking at me sternly

... Only problem is, I don't remember how to decrypt all that!
The pile of things was for the new names I learned,
the Jungle-rope thing was for an album's name.
I think the X-Men was for a curious life lesson...

But, well, all it is now is funny images and a market for that page of my life.

I could dig to decrypt a few of the meanings I think, but thinking about the weekend itself seems like a better use of my time.

Haha that is so interesting. I totally agree that trying to decode them wouldn't be the best use of your time. This happens to me time to time with information I learned. I come upon and image and have no clue what it is and how I came up with it. It usually comes back to me when I look at the information and clicks!

Yes, this is quite common and a great testament to the technique.

Often conscious attempts at relaxation will aid the decoding process.

Also, better encoding and review at the beginning make distant recall a more successful enterprise relative to your personal practice.
