Quote of the Week

If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go into business, because we'd be cynical. Well, that's nonsense. You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down. Ray Bradbury

How to Develop a photographic Memory is an ever popular topic on the internet.

Today's newsletter offers you some simple techniques to reach this much sort-after ability


THE BACK ISSUES ARE AT... ===========================================================

FEATURE ARTICLE; How To Develop A Photographic Memory =========================================================== In his groundbreaking book, “Science of Intelliegence & Creativity”, Chapter 2, Prof Shichida says, the secret of intelligence and creativity lies in the right brain’s imaging capability. Then, in Chapter 3, he goes on to describe several methods of developing this imaging ability. After image training is one of the simplest methods used in Shichida Centres, to develop the imaging ability.

This training is the foundation of all the other image exercises.

To start with these exercises you must -

1. Create a relaxing environment, away from distractions 2. Get the children to take a deep breath in and out (3 times) 3. Get a timer and a recording sheet


Set up an ordinary lamp stand with a 30-watt Red, Green or Yellow bulb, if possible.

Position the lamp about six feet away from the children

Tell your class you are going to switch on the light and to look at the light for about 30 seconds. And then they should close their eyes and see the after image of the light bulb for as long as she can.

They can open the eyes when the after image disappears.

You will need a sort of timer in order to evaluate how the child is holding the image longer and longer.


During the World War II, the Airforce was faced with the task of finding a solution to a critical problem faced by aircrew gunners.Sometimes aircrew gunners have to make split-second decisions as to whether to fire or not to fire. (It's important to not shoot at friendly aircraft.)

One method the Airforce used to help gunners speed up their aircraft identification skills was to flash photographs on a screen of the planes they had to recognize. One device used for this purpose was called a tachistoscope (ta kis' tuh scope). Instructors could vary the duration of the images being flashed on the screen. At times the images would be flashed for just a few hundredths of a second. Blink and you miss it.

The first tachistoscope was originally described by the German physiologist A.W. Volkmann in 1859.

The technology and idea was further refined by Dr. Samuel Renshaw, a 20th-century American psychologist. The system Dr. Renshaw developed came to be known as the Renshaw Recognition System (RRS), or Flash Recognition Training (FRT).

Here is a sample of the method used: Aircraft Recognition Tachistoscope Simulation.

An interesting development took place as the experiment was being conducted. When the gunners were in darkened rooms during this training, their eyes became dark adapted. It was found that many of them were holding on to the split-second images after the images were no longer on the screen. With dark adapted eyes, the images could be retained for a few seconds.

A study was set up to see just what could be done with these retained images. The images were positives instead of the more familiar negative images you get if you stare fixedly for a few seconds at a picture or scene, then look away.

Some subjects got so good at the process that after seeing a very short duration image of a page in a book, they could then read the page, from somewhere inside their heads.

The fact that the subjects could acquire a readable image of a whole book page suggests that their peripheral vision happened to be, or became, more acute than that normally found in the general population. This form of retained visual images may not be accomplished with the same process as done by people who have what is called photographic memories.

The writer did not have access to a tachistoscope but decided to try an alternate technique for seeing the retained images. Dark adaptation seemed to be a prerequisite for the short term image retention. One way to dark adapt your eyes is to close them. Its not the same as being in a dark room but one can get a similar effect. Then comes the tachistoscope emulation. Rapidly open and close your eyes. This is not unlike exposing film in a camera. The first few hundred times you try this, you'll probably get blurred images because your eyeballs aren't yet convinced to hold still during the exposure. The images will be there but doubled, usually vertically. Keep trying! It's also wise to make sure nobody is watching you.

After a month or so of your covert camera work you should find that your eyeballs begin to cooperate (the process might be called the steely eye)and images of big things with good contrast start to hang on. Big letters on billboards and soft drink machines make good targets.

With lots of work, assuming you haven't been put away, you should find that text in books show up in blurry fashion, unreadable, but recognizable as fuzzy text. Large print documents may bring more rewarding results. As time goes on the acuity should improve to the point of readability. It may be that that tachistoscope simulation near the top of this page, if viewed in a darkened environment, may provide a usable indicator of the process being discussed.

You can cheat, or take a short cut if you please, by using a camera strobe flash in a dark room. Hold the flash unit above or to the side of your head and aim it at an outstretched arm. You'll see a bright image of your arm that does not immediately fade away. The image may last for two or three seconds. If you lower your arm while the image is still active you can have your own spooky show.
