So far you have learned how to create support images, how to connect information visually, and guidelines for visualization. Now, we are going to look at a useful technique for giving yourself more space on your support images.
Let’s take the first item you have in your Cicero System. A chair, for example. If you look at the chair, you see a back, you see armrests, bars holding up the armrests, a seat, legs, cross-bars, feet, etc…. You can pick 5 of these parts, and suddenly your 1 image has turned into five! When you need to remember something, you can put the first item on the back, second item on the armrest, third item on the seat, etc… This gives you a lot more storage room in your mind very quickly.
In the School of Phenomenal Memory Course, one of the skills learned is the formation of support-image systems. Students of the course learn how to fit 125 blocks of information on one Cicero support image. I hope you are beginning to see that real, efficient memorization isn’t just about knowing a few techniques. If you want to memorize hundreds of phone numbers, names, addresses, new words every day, and entire books, you need to develop a skill for encoding information into visual images, memorizing the actual information, memorizing the sequence of the information in your mind, and fixing the information in your mind for as long as you need it. With a step-by-step, guided course, and personal help, you can make all of these processes second nature. Read my in-depth reviews of the Course and the GMS System for more information.
