The +2500-year history of memory hacking

In the lifehacking section, I share seven foods essential to sharpening memory.

Sorry about the audio quality, I recorded this podcast (while being rained on) in a park at the border of Panama and France.

  • How to always remember where you left your keys.
  • 4 tools for creating powerful visual associations.
  • Brainpower diet, what to eat to maximize and maintain memory.
  • How to improve “Original Awareness”
  • The Loci Technique was used by Roman and Greek orators.

Rhetorica ad Herennium on memory

“Now nature herself teaches us what we should do. When we see in every day life things that are petty, ordinary, and banal, we generally fail to remember them, because the mind is not being stirred by anything novel or marvellous. But if we see or hear something exceptionally base, dishonourable, unusual, great, unbelievable, or ridiculous, that we are likely to remember for a long time.”
