    Reason posting this? cause I'm trying to beat some memory world record.
    At first I was like"wow world champs, so OP, I couldn't ever get close to them"
    then around 2023.7 I was like "wait, when I was 15 I learned 1400 vocabs per day 27000/3months, I can beat some record too? (Fighting WR I can't down play this)" then I thought of the whole plan of oh it's gonna look so good on my resume.

    but you know what? the more I'm reading into this the more I just realize that I'm just a total dumb ass, the shear amount of talent dwarfs even my best performance by miles, I couldn't ever get anywere close to what they can do.
    EVEN THE VARIFICATION CODE LAUGHS AT ME, DUMB28, I'm 28.

          >Integrate movement, taste, and sound into the technique and study at least 1000 hours with it. Replace numbers with sounds, punctuate statements with tongue movements, and make ninja hand signs while you do recitations
          Nevermind I'm good

          makes total sense, stronger neuron connections better enhancement that it won't get replaced by later memory tasks competiting the same spot blurs it out.

      damn, crazy. that's a thick book too.
      I guess the fact that intellectual abilities are being tested and valued at a young age is the reason those that excelle at memory are able to get selected, get push to memory championship trainings. And vast enough of a population too.
      I think people are just as good anywhere but society allows them to win this way or not had determined the out come of the competition

      Not quite, same can be said dribbble some basketball are totally meaningless, but memory training is exactly like a sport, thru dedicated training excelle to world class in anything one win leads to another, keep winning, keep the forward momentum , memory is at the base of all cognitive ability, by strengthening memory everything flourishes; much like doing too much dumbass pushups no body cares about. Self discovery too.

      Memory training makes you realize that: memory are your third eyes literally play movie infront of your eyes and there are different types of memory you can focus on(like a muscle) and it makes things clearer in your mind's eyes(like eye sights zooming in and out)
      so memory training makes you realize that these kinds of tiny adjustments leads to efficient memory or not, much like a few techniques in a punch changes how powerful it is that you never realize they existed, it's a very interesting self discovery.

        You know how some people walk with their body posture all out of wack? they don't feel very good going about their day like that but they will never realizes it, they don't know how much better it gets when everything is fine tuned and well calibrated, they won't accidently discover how to walk right matter of fact it will just kept getting worse, until it's properly trained, then all of the sudden walking standing talking doing everything felt so much smoother and better wonder why? posture, simple tiny little thing, makes big difference in almost everything we do in day to day life.

        IDK if that's a good metaphor? but memory training is exactly like that, it's self discovery how to do things right all over again, so that carrys to other areas too.

          It’s an okay analogy, but I would lean on: how does improving memory help for people who already have a normal and healthy memory? In the case of bad posture, there is a needed correction. In the case of memory, without a mental defect, has anything actually improved? I’m not convinced improving memory helps in that case.

            Oh yeah. Sorry. I’m not trying to be argumentative. I know I come off that way a lot. I’m sure if a person trains their memory, the world just looks different. And there was a time when that was an absolute critical skill to preserve history and cultural unity prior to the widespread adoption of writing.
            I’m only trying to say, we don’t live in that world. I mean full respect to people who do memorizing competitions, or stacking cups, or rubik’s cubes, or extreme ninja warrior obstacle courses. It’s all great to achieve that level of excellence. It’s just not useful, IMO

            Reading comperhansion wouldn't be an issue if that were the case. everybody would become super methodical, ChatGPT3.5 with langchain(memory plug in) and reflections(so it thinks twice about it's own action or decisions) becames incredibly powerful.

            Can't compete with activities that makes money, like professional work, business or real estate.

        Well, I doubt you could be faster than the chimp, since he’s going about as fast a his hand will move. Maybe if you use two hands, I can see a small improvement.
        But maybe you meant you can do twice as many numbers? I’m not surprised if that’s the case, because numbers have meaning to you that a chimp doesn’t have. The chimp probably can’t actually count (at least not more than 5-ish), he’s just memorized some shapes we call numbers. But that’s not a flex on the chimp. There’s another version of this test where the test is shapes, not numbers, and I’d wager he is faster and able to do more shapes than you.

          Well, my point is that most people can do better than the chimp, they just haven't use their brain in a long while.

          It's funny that I figured out most of those on my own.

      Yeah, it's the most fundamental pratice for cognitive abilities besides hand eye coordinations, anything can be a memory training, but doing isolation kinda locks it in for you.

    how is ninja warrior training not useful
    physical excellence is pretty useful
    ceos dominate their rooms because theyre physically imposing
    officers are able to chase down skilled criminals

    memory sports are useful too
    corporations need accountants and attorneys
    multibillion dollar contracts go out to firms who can process millions of pages of text, and for that, exceptional memories are required.
    even half trained paralegals whove at least attended memory contests are useful consultants for these contracts
