10 How to Increase by 100 Per Cent Everything You Have Learned So

You have now completed the five individual Memory Systems: Link, Number-Shape, Number-Rhyme, Roman Room and Alphabet Systems. Each of these systems can be used either independently or in conjunction with another system. Furthermore, one or two of the systems of your choice can be set aside, if you wish, as 'constant memory banks' if you have certain lists or orders of items that you will need to be able to recall over a period of a year or more.

Before moving on to the broader systems, however, I want to introduce you to a simple and intriguing method for instantly doubling the capacity of any of the systems you have learned so far. When you have reached the end of a system but wish to add further associations, all you have to do is to go back to the beginning of your system and imagine your association word exactly as you usually imagine it, but as if it were contained in a huge block of ice. This simple visualisation technique will drastically change the association pictures you have formed and will double the effectiveness of your system by giving you the original list plus that list in its new context.

For example, ifyour first key in the Number-Shape System was telephone pole, you would imagine that same telephone pole either buried in the heart of your giant block of ice or protruding from the corners or sides. If your first word in the Number-Rhyme System was sun, then you could imagine its fierce rays melting the edges of the ice block in which it was contained. Ifyour first word in the Alphabet System was ace, then you could imagine a giant playing card either frozen in the centre or forming one of the six sides of the ice block. If, therefore, you were using your 'second' Alphabet System (the alphabet in a huge block of ice), and the first item you wanted to remember was parrot, you might imagine your parrot crashing through the centre heart, spade, club or diamond of your card, shattering, with lots of squawking, and cracking, the block of ice.

You now have the ability to remember randomly linked items, two sets of ten items, a large number of ordered items (your Roman Room), and twenty-six ordered items. And you can instantly double that capacity by using the 'block of ice' method. Having reached this stage and having by now enormously increased the flexibility of your mind, your abilities to imagine, associate, sense and create are ready to take on and easily master the grandfather of all the systems: the Major System, a system that can be used to create - should you so wish - limitless memory systems!
