and if there be a way to know the past, to know the future, a way to perceive reality at its very core, mightn’t pure meditation and construction of multi-dimensional memory structures be a potent tactic?
that is, if the goal is to look upon the world and see what it’s like to grok it, to deeply understand it, then perhaps building up models, slowly but surely, of how the world works, how interactions take place, might be an effective strat
and what special ways of thinking might there be if higher-dimensional memory structures (a.k.a. “memory palaces”) _are_ an effective way of organizing and crafting and generating new ideas?
higher-dimensional patterns (that is, higher-dimensional than paper, etc.) are easily evident when familiar with the strat and a need becomes obvious, perhaps
in other words: atoms, lists, lists of lists, etc.
and thus perhaps a very interesting proposition appears—with a sort of “list processor”, a Lisp, you could perhaps very precisely finesse these atoms, these places, these loci in this method of loci
so, if you imagine a space, place atoms within, and create a list (in method-of-loci parlance, perhaps called a “route”), then you’ve increased the dimensionality of the space (because now it can accomodate movement along the axis of the list); create another list (another way to organize/thinkAbout the atoms), and the relation of the two lists with each other is _itself_ a list, _itself_ a new dimension.
there is no limit to this procedure, this ability to think higher-order thoughts
given careful consideration, an entire model could be built that could organize the memories in this way (this atoms-and-lists way); what advantages might it have?
some of the amazingness of Lisp is in the code-is-data approach; given all memories are perhaps continuously re-interpreting each other, such a description is apt here, too
nonetheless, there appears to be no end to the advancing of this method of organizing life, which is much faster and more powerful than penning, but harder to share, unfortunately, perhaps
