Memory & Mnemonics

With the right system you can learn to memorize and remember long lists of names, phone numbers or any other set of data you need to recall quickly and remember for a long time. These mnemonic systems are not just wonderful to help you in your daily lives, but are great techniques to perform unbelievable mental feats. A mnemonic system is great if you want to memorize a card stack (see Stacks: Memorized & Algorithmic), or a prompter list. The name that has dominated this field over many years is Dominic O'Brien.

Perpetual Calendar for your iPod/iPhone/PDA/cell-phone by Scott CramIf you've learned the classic Day of the Week For Any Date feat, as taught in sources such as the Roth Memory Course, The Magic of Memory, Train Your Brain and Entertain and Zufall's Memory Trix, you already know how useful a perpetual calendar can be for verification of the date. Now, you can have a compact perpetual calendar as close as your iPod, iPhone, PDA or cell phone that easily allows you to access any date in any year from 1800 through 2199!

"But wait," I can hear you say, "Don't iPods, iPhones, PDAs and most cell phones already have built-in calendars?" Yes, they do. However, most of these calendars are intended for appointments, and only handle recent dates...

E. W. Scripture

Arithmetical Prodigies by E. W. ScriptureArithmetical Prodigies by E.W. Scripture is a remarkable paper about remarkable people. Published in 1891, it gives the first comprehensive account of those individuals who have displayed an astonishing capacity for mental calculation. The numerous and fascinating biographies alone make this work a 'must read' for anyone with a taste for the curious and sensational. The paper can also lay claim to being one of the first works of popular psychology. Its style - essentially that of a treatise that reads like a novel - has been replicated right through to the present day. In short, Scripture's...

George Parker Bidder

On Mental Calculation by George Parker BidderGeorge Parker Bidder is one of history's greatest mental calculators. In the early 19th century he toured Britain as a 'calculating boy'. The amazing demonstrations he gave caught the attention of eminent scholars who offered to fund his education. Bidder went on to become one of the leading engineers of his time. His position as vice president of the Institution of Civil Engineers afforded him the opportunity to speak openly about his views on mental calculation in a lecture to fellow members of the institution. That lecture, given in 1856, is the subject of this document. In it, Bidder describes...

George Marchese

Super Memory List: print and perform 1 by George Marchese("Print and Perform" is a new magic series that will enable you to easily build yourself beautiful tricks just printing them.)

EFFECT:

You, the memory-man, demonstrate to really have a super memory. You show to the audience a sheet of paper containing a list of 50 six-digit numbers. You declare that you have committed to memory the full list. The six digit numbers are identified by ciphers from 1 to 50. The identifying ciphers are scrambled to make it more difficult memorizing the associated six digit number. Three or more spectators, in turn, choose and announce one identifying figure...

Robert A. Nelson

Calvert's Magic Memory by Robert A. NelsonHere is famous stage magician John Calvert's own, easy to do, Magic Memory System for memorizing from 20 to 40 words or objects.

Presented as a stage or platform demonstration, you are able to memorize and recall the words as rapidly as called by the audience.

From 20 to 40 numbers are shown on a wipe-erase whiteboard (or blackboard). Each spectator designates a number and a word. Note that the objects need not be called in sequence. When the board is filled, the performer - with the board out of his sight - repeats the words forwards and backwards. The mental marvel is also able to recall the word...

Chris Wasshuber

Two Person Code For One Person by Chris WasshuberThis is a system to easily remember one or two cards, say two key cards, and not forget them during the performance of your routine. It is not an associative memory system.

Some card routines, particularly the recently published ones in Sunken Treasury by Nick Conticello require one to remember two key cards. In the heat of performing such an effect these can be forgotten, rendering the trick a failure. This system allows you to easily keep track of one or two or more cards that you want to remember.

There is very little to learn for this system. Reading this manuscript should be enough to put this system to work....

Mnemodexterity by L. De BevereUse lexicon or any 26 alphabet cards to present an astonishing display of mentalism and memory.

Effect: The mentalist thoroughly shuffles a set of 26 letter cards (the complete alphabet). One unidentified card is removed from the deck. Then three members of the audience divide the rest of the pack among themselves, shuffle their hands and call out in turn the letters they are holding.

Now,

David M. Roth

Roth Memory Course by David M. RothThis is a wonderful course in seven lessons to improve your memory. It covers all fundamentals and shows how to apply these mnemotechnic tools to remember for example names, faces, spelling and numbers. It also gives applications for magic tricks. You will learn how to memorize a shuffled deck of 52 cards or how to remember the knight tour on the chess board. It is likely that Roth was a magician himself, since he mentions his friend Henry Hatton from Magicians' Tricks fame. Dai Vernon learned from this course and mentions it on the Revelations video tapes.

Written in 1918 and as good as any book on 'how to improve your memory'...

Orville Wayne Meyer

The Amazing Magic Square and Master Memory Demonstration by Orville Wayne MeyerOrville Meyer, probably most famous for developing the bullet catch for Ted Annemann, demonstrates here his skill to routine amazing effects.

The stunt of forming a sixteen cell magic square that will add up to a number suggested by a spectator is a spectacular mathematical feat. Memorizing and repeating a list of objects named by members of the audience is an interesting and impressive mental demonstration. When you combine the formation of the sixteen cell magic square with the memorized list of objects, you really have something!

But we do not stop there! In this version, the double-barreled feat...

Super Mentality by Robert A. NelsonNow you, too, can present an impromptu demonstration of super power memory. Do it any time, any place. A terrific publicity stunt!

From ten to 100 articles are called out by spectators and memorized by the performer, in their proper sequence. The performer can call out the items in sequence, forward, then backward. The performer gives the number of any item in the list. If a number is called out, the performer can also call out the item at that position. Five (or more) dollar bills are submitted, spectators calling aloud the serial numbers. The performer immediately memorizes the numbers,...

Grant Stuart & Chris Wasshuber

Perpetual Calendar on a Sticker by Grant Stuart & Chris WasshuberQuickly find the weekday to any date between 1500 and 2299.

You will receive a perpetual Gregorian calendar, covering the years from 1500 - 2299, which is printed on one self-adhesive label of size 2.25" x 4" (54 mm x 100 mm). Below the calendar table are the instructions in three lines of text. If you do not need the instructions simply cut them off.

The sticker fits nicely on a case for a deck of playing cards, with the instruction portion bent over the lower edge. (See the photo.) Thus, the calendar fits without the instructions on the back of a poker-size playing card. The calendar...
