because people wanted me to make a tutorial and i hope it wasn’t too vague
the whole point is it’s made for you and you make it as detailed or complex as you want.
p.s if you have tips or such please send them to me! I will add them here!!
SO YOURE SAYING THAT I CAN ACTUALLY BE BEST FRIENDS WITH ANY FICTIONAL CHARACTER AND IT WILL BE LIKE THEYRE REAL
this is incredible! another thing to help you concentrate while creating your mind palace is to maybe blindfold yourself and actually walk around so that you really feel like you’re in you mind palace. and when you’re changing the furniture or whatever, i found it helpful to move my hands around, sort of like how tony stark does with jarvis
anyways, this is an incredible tutorial and i will definitely be putting it to good use
This will be mine. I will have it and I won’t need much of anything more.
I’ve listening to self-hypnosis tapes that essentially describe a mind-palace to you to help you get to it. I tried going through this tutorial and already have a pretty sketchy idea of what mine looks like. (It’s more of a colorful studio apartment than a palace, but who knows where I’ll end up if I step outside?)
It’s fun, and strangely relaxing. <3

For more information, see the Ars Memoria or The Art of Memory. This is an entire school of thought with a lot of history - it was developed in the 5th century by Greek orators and rhetoricians, so that they could give speeches without notes. And of course, you can apply it to anything you want to remember.
The instructions above to literally imagine yourself walking is good; the important part of this technique relies on creating spatial associations with specific ideas and information. This is what makes it different from just visualizing. We all remember stuff that happens to us pretty well, because we were physically present in the moment; ideas not so much, because they’re not rooted in physical experience. It’s even recommended that your “palace” be a place that you actually know, to root it even deeper in your personal experience.
You can use symbols, or visualize and “store” things (like books) you want to remember and cite later, etc. The shelf is here, the desk is there - walk to and fro, decide how many steps it takes between each spot. Change things as necessary, but consistency is also important to how it works.
There’s also a neat article by a guy who used this to teach himself a language in 22 hours. I gotta try that next.
i like that we say “oh, man” to express disappointment

my roommate and i spent a 4 hour drive listening to some super nostalgic (in the bad way) music from 2004 so i thought i’d put together a playlist to remind you why middle school was such a dark time

If Mama Tran were in charge of finding Gadreel and avenging her son’s death that whole arc could be wrapped up in about 20 minutes. She’d find him, gank him, and spend the rest of the episode drinking Dean under the table while filling out law school applications for Sam.
