10 Lectures 01:21:22

 This lecture present on overview of the memory systems and methods.

Preview 03:04

The Dominic system is a technique for memorizing long sequences of numbers or playing cards, created by Dominic O'Brien, a British mnemonist (eight time World Memory Champion) and an author of memory-related books.


2.2.The Dominic System
12:36

The Person-Action-Object System (or "PAO" System) is a popular method for memorizing long random numbers or decks of playing cards. The PAO system is similar to the Dominic System (person-action) but it adds an object to the images.

2.3.The Person-Action-Object System (PAO)
07:48

The creator of the Ben System is Ben Pridmore, a British mnemonist who has won the World Memory Championships three times. Ben is also multiple world record holder and holds the record for the most memory competitons attended.

Ben System is a variation of the Major System, which I introduced in my previous course.

2.4.Ben System

Binary numbers used in memory competitions are large sequences of the digits 0 and 1 arranged in an arbitrary sequence.You will learn about the binary digits memorization systems.

 This lecture present on overview of the playing cards memory systems.

2.7.Memorize playing cards
04:42

Although the Dominic system is a method for remembering long sequences of numbers, it can also be used to remember other sequences such as the order of a deck of playing cards. This works by establishing some method of systematically converting the cards into memorable images.

2.8.Using Dominic system for Playing cards
09:50

The Person-Action-Object System (or "PAO" System) is a popular method for memorizing multiple decks of playing cards.

2.9.Using PAO system for memorizing playing cards
03:34

What is the advantage of this system, compared to the Dominic and P.A.O. systems?

With the Dominic system, you need a 26 stages journey to memorize a deck of cards.

With the P.A.O. system, you need a 17 stages journey to memorize a deck of cards.

But the Ben System only requires 9 stages to memorize a deck of cards, so it is one of the most efficient card memorization systems, a true nuclear arsenal of memory.
