This is my memory palace by putting images inside the space I can memorise huge quantities of information ten decks of shuffled playing cards lists of hundreds of random words entire poems and the first hundred digits of pi I'm going to show you how the memory palace works so that you can memorise the first hundred digits of pi so you can't just memorize a hundred digits of a random number most of us are just not going to be able to do that the technique that I use is called the major system so using this code you can convert any number into a word and then into an image that you can visualize in your memory palace 41 4 is an r1 is a TRD could be RT R at five to seven to look no no Lincoln eight to zero two seven one zero zero one four to seven eight two three nine four zero seven two three to zero three one to seven so we're gonna do with PI is break this number up into three-digit chunks and come up with a unique image for each chunk one for one the road of could be a druid five nine to LA but no olivian like somebody from Libya maybe it's moammar qaddafi six five three sure look ma could be somebody shouting Shalom so basically these 33 images are the first hundred digits of pi now let's go to my memory palace so now I picture myself standing outside the memory palace and there's the druid chillin on the front lawn then I walk through the door into the house into a living room and there's Qaddafi sitting on the yellow sofa right next to him a little midget shouting Shalom we turned the corner of the coffee table and there is a wolf peeing on the nice laminate floor right above him there is a picture going kaboom and then just beneath that is a nymph two three eight sitting cross-legged on the floor we're passing from the living room into the bedroom and right there on the left for six - a Russian doll next to the Russian doll piping-hot falafel filled with schwarmann on the bed MF M male female male pornographic scenes and hanging from the wall big bony kneecap and I walk into the bathroom it's a beautiful bathroom there's Wilson the volleyball from castaway he's sitting on the toilet inside the shower is gonna be Michelle Pfeiffer and on a coffee table little bathroom reading top a book and then 169 on the wall Toshiba logo next to that 399 male pattern baldness I walk into the kitchen and there's Michael Jackson moonwalking across the laminate floor next to him a humming diesel motor and then on the wall of these phones that are buzzing and in front of them a baker I can smell the bread baking in the oven and in front of him is a barrier I'm gonna lift up that barrier and walk into the hallway it's moammar qaddafi again and behind him a Lucha Libre mask a pair of red high-heeled leather dominatrix boots a horse shoe a no-fishing sign an unsafe sign a big bottle of cheap pop of vodka and there I see an ocean view and then I walk outside of the house into the backyard it's summer and behind that funnel and helen mirren and then 1 1 7 fish riding a bicycle I don't know because that's idiotic 0 6 7 Pat Sajak the host from wheel of fortune and that's my memory cows that's how I visualize the first hundred digits of pi ok so now let's see if I can actually do this 3.14159265 three five eight nine seven nine three two three eight four six two six four three three eight three two seven nine five zero two eight eight four one nine seven one six nine three nine nine three seven five one zero five eight two zero nine seven four nine four four five nine two three zero seven eight one six four zero six two eight six two zero eight nine nine eight six two eight zero three four eight two five three four two one one seven zero six seven did it okay all right sweet that should have taken me about half as much time as it did I used to be a veritable lou ferrigno of memory strength and now I'm just like a fat old mnemonic schlub I'm embarrassed by that performance but at least I didn't make any mistakes
