"Seeing is believing. " You've heard that one before. Well, seeing is also remembering.

Do you think, or remember in pictures, words, feelings, smells, or tastes? The answer is that all of these senses might be part of the process, but visualization is the key to instant recall of just about anything you wish to remember. If I gave you a list of 25 items to remember, could you recite that list back to me tomorrow from memory, backward and forward? Never, you say, but you absolutely could if you have a place in your mind to store it (like a hard drive on a computer) and you can visualize it (like seeing it on your computer screen in your mind's eye). This is all possible when you understand the visualization process and where or how to store those images (see "Second Secret" below). The visualization process is simple; you merely see the thing you want to remember, or you substitute it with an image that will instantly call up the item, phrase, or place you desire. More elaborate detail will be provided in our free newsletter. Let's look at the real booster of memory: storage... The theory of VIRTUAL MEMORY requires that you first understand that your memory needs to be a peripheral device or location. Memory Storage Your memory can be used like a computer: you can develop a peripheral device and use it to store your images, analogous to the computer and its hard drive, or external drive. For humans, this is as simple as using someplace which they are really intimate with, such as their home, and visually placing images of what they wish to remember in different locations within. I go into much greater detail in my book and in the newsletter, but you can try this now by making a grocery list, or something, and visually going through your location and visualizing the items, one at a time, in separate locations in the house, or whatever you decided to use as your storage device. It's that simple! I'll give you examples to practice with in the newsletter. That's only the beginning of memory enhancement. You can go much further and develop a really super memory (photographic memory) and amaze people. I've had people tell me there's some trick

here, or that I must have someone sending me signals or something. The truth is, just about anyone can do it with a little practice. Thank you for your request. You might now realize that visualization is the key to the process of developing a "VIRTUAL MEMORY" (or photographic memory). Th e first step in this process is to develop a location in which to store the thin gs you wish to remember. To do this you must use a location you know well like y our home or some other place you know intimately. Then you need to visualize thi s place and number sub-locations within it starting with 1 and all the way to at least 25. It will be very helpful if you map this out on paper and practice reca lling each sub-location by number until you can visually walk through and recall the number of every one, (i.e. front door, hallway,etc). This is the first and most critical step. Once you have developed your visual lo cation and all of its numbered sub-locations, you will be able to store anything ... Now that you have a location to store the things you wish to remember, prac tice a visual walk-through of the sub-locations until you can recite each by num bered locations.Once you know this thoroughly, ask someone to give you a list, o ne by one, of things to remember. Visualize each item in each location as they a re given to you. You should be able to recite back that list without effort. The next lesson will help you to become more proficient at this. Practice with only about 10 to 15 items at first. Then expand your list to 25. Soon it will become second nature. The trick is to see the thing you are trying to remember as vividly as poss ible. See it first in its normal state, then enlarge it, then change its color. Try to experience it by hearing what it might sound like (dog's bark?), feel it , or remember what it might feel like, smell it, taste it and so on. This is usi ng all of your senses (modalities) in order to experience the things you place i n each sub-location within your main location. After practicing this, you will b e able to recite back a list of 25 things in any order. Soon you will be able to do this with 100 or more and even make movies in these locations for remembering material for an exam or a speech. Preface from VIRTUAL MEMORY FOR HUMANS For the sake of brevity and to make this a quick and easy learning experience for you, I'm going to avoid the clutter you might usually find in some books and get right to the point. I have toyed with numerous mnemonic systems and researched most of the literature available (from past to present) on the subject of memory and memory enhancement. I have also performed extensive research of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and the culmination of that research comes to you now in what you are about to

read (in short) as my unique system of developing a photographic memory. If you have any problems or questions, please ask. I will provide you with a prompt and courteous response. Disclaimer Photographic memory is merely a term used to describe the ability to recall images in the mind in great detail. The word photographic in the Second College Edition: The American Heritage Dictionary (1991), indicates the validity of my usage in the sense divisions 3 and 4 for the adjective: 3. Resembling a photograph, esp. representing or simulating something with great accuracy and fidelity of detail. 4. Capable of forming accurate and lasting impressions: a photographic memory. The term photographic memory should not be confused with eidetic imagery or recall which is the ability to recall in such detail as to look at a written page and recite every word verbatim , both backward and forward. However what you are about to learn is similar in that you will be able to recite a long list of items backward, forward and in any other order. I recommend that you read other books on the subject of memory or mnemonics in order to satisfy your own learning needs. Practice! But of the utmost importance--relax! Stress can be a contributing factor to a not-sogood memory. Have confidence in knowing that when you learn this system, you'll never have to worry about memory problems again.
