Learning Random Numbers

Hello Memory Masters,
I m new to this site, My question is,
How to Memorise long Digits like more than 500 digits,
Do we need to create a journey with 250 stops for 2 image stops, or different journeys with small stops like 50 or so,
Please guide me...

Learn at least a two-digit system, so assign a permanent image to every number between 00 and 99. Learn this by heart. After this, there are several ways to memorize long numbers, with perhaps the easiest to learn being the Story method, where you link your images together, creating a story. For example, a tiger (17) jumping on a moose (30), causing the moose to fall onto a knife (28), then along comes a car (74), etc. Then, you recall the story, giving you 17302874...

More effective, generally, but more preparation needed, would be to create a journey or memory palace with many loci. If you choose to put one image on each locus, you'd need 250 loci to store a 500 digit number. If you choose to have two images interacting on each locus, you could do 500 digits with just 125 loci.

Whatever pleases you actually

250-loci palaces are tough to make and time consuming to learn, but if you can do it and it works efficient to you, you can just do it.
If you use five 50-loci palaces, to create an order in walking through them. You could put the palaces in an environment if that is possible for the palaces, or you could add a sixth palace where the loci are like a gateway to the 50-loci palaces, so you don't mix them up.

You could also use PAO, which is often used to need less loci. Using PAO, you make images for 6-digit numbers using a 2-digit system. (or 3-digit numbers for a 1-digit system and 9-digit numbers for a 3-digit system).
Instead of 250 loci, you'd only need 84 loci.
