Part II: MEMORY SYSTEMS > KEY FUNCTION #6 LINKING

Chapter 10. KEY FUNCTION #6 LINKING

Associating one thought to another is the basis of the Link System. A basic rule in remembering a new piece of information is that it must be associated to something you already know, or to remember it in some ridiculous way. Doing it forces an original awareness that is necessary to remember anything. Whenever you concentrate, or use imagination, you will be forced to consciously form associations which will aid your memory.

Assume you want to memorize the following ten items in sequence: airplane, tree, envelope, earring, bucket, sing, basketball, salami, star, nose. First you need to picture an airplane in your mind. Next, link the tree and airplane together in a ridiculous way such as an airplane growing on a tree. What you’ve just done is associate two things in a ridiculous way.
