Information storing


Hi everyone!

How do I store information in my palace? I have made the palace but I do not know how to store the information. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

If this is for your Biology class from your other post, I'll answer here.

I would make a list of your loci and travel through it in your mind in the same order every time. So if it's your own house you could start at your door step then to the next closest loci. Putting this down on paper makes the initial steps easier if the memory palace is new and big. Take your list of biology terms and put one term(with definition) at each loci. I would do all this on a word program OpenOffice/Word 2016 etc... This in of it's self makes memorization easier.

The next step is to turn the definitions into items that you can picture. For instants I can't picture Francis Bacon, but I can picture Francis from the TV show House of Cards and I can picture him on the edge of a cliff on the side of my memory castle using the scientific method to figure out if he would survive if he fell off it.

Though if you are new, you can just use the loci to spur on your memory. Make the list in order and walk through it. As far as studying goes, if you have 6-7 days the I would:
1. Study your list and try to recall as much as you can without looking at the list
2. An hour later, do this again.
3. The next day do this again.
4. 2 days after do this again.
5. Day before,
6. if time, morning of.

I don't spend more than 20 minutes on my lists, even when there up to 100. This is when going in order in your memory palace really helps. You travel to a spot, if you don't see it there, you know you don't know it and move it. Don't fixate on what you don't know, just move on and review the list right before your next recall.

Good luck.
