Memory palace video

6 Oct

I have been thinking about creating a new memory palace for myself. So from time to time I may post about this project. Here is a video on the memory palace technique:

    Off topic, I stumbled upon this fascinating essay: https://iainews.iai.tv/articles/who-is-rachael-the-philosophy-of-blade-runner-and-memory-auid-885?access=ALL, which poses this question about identity and memory: “But another philosophical issue that is raised in the film [Blade Runner] – and to some extent in a more interesting way than in the book [Do androids dram of electric sheep?] – is the issue of personal identity and its connection with memory. Does what you can remember make a difference to who you are?”

      Thanks for the link. This is all very interesting, I am a big fan of the Blade Runner movie and Philip K. Dick’s writing (in fact I am currently reading Valis). I haven’t seen the new film yet, but hope to soon.

      This discussion reminds me a story line in Marvel comics some years ago; a group of shape shifting aliens, the Skrulls infiltrate the earth by taking the form of famous super heroes. But to make the deception perfect the “secret skrulls” were implanted with memories that convince them that they are the real heroes. This meant that even if you were a real hero you had some uncertainty about your own identity.

        Thanks for the “Skrull” link; I still haven’t seen the new BR movie either, but I hope to this week.
