We are particularly good at this skill when we are children; we become “creative story tellers.”
He brings about the understanding of how our forefathers would transfer knowledge their sharing stories. Luis seems to imply that various points in the brain are activated when we are taking in a story.
Its frustrating to hear his perspective of the subconscious mind vs. the unconscious. As your conscious mind becomes the gatekeeper to the subconscious.
I don’t want to spoil the book for anyone, definitely worth every penny.
How it worked for me: used his technique to create my own (what it teaches you to do) and it was freakin amazing!!! I was also able to build off of the concepts & apply it to other more complex areas of study. I'm incredibly impressed with my results 😁 Hope this helps!
But, past that, the list of mnemonics, specifically for medical nouns, functions, descriptors, is a) not the set of mnemonics and mnemonic acronyms common to medical professions (not, e.g. a list such as RICE- Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation, for sprains)
The list of mnemonics for memorizing, e.g. medical term prefixes, is SO colorful, near arbitrary and so divorced from the use and meaning of the term one is trying to memorize, that it is a counterproductive distraction FROM memorizing the terms.
(Infra- below. Picture an infrared cat, under a table. This is the mnemonic for memorizing structures below the temporal cranium. There is so arbitrary a correlation between anatomical structures below the temporal cranium, and an an infra-red cat under a table that by the time you've memorized the bizarre mnemonic, remembering the actual term, much less structure or function, or role in medical diagnosis or treatment is lost)
Actually just learning common Greek and Latin roots, and anatomical location terms (supra, saggital, posterior...), and using traditional medical mnemonics is a much much better way to memorize, and also to retain the medical sense of the material, rather than memorizing sheer random term-recall mnemonics)
I would not wish to be treated by any medical professional who used this book as a medical study guide.
That said, the introductory techniques are great for memorizing objects who's meaning or use is not of any direct functionality- eg, the technique is great for memorizing, say, names, or or unrelated sets of objects.
