The Conceptual Framework of Memory Induction

The Conceptual Framework of Memory Induction

Memory acquisition and the augmentation and integration of information has always been an enigma to many, the process of encoding, storing and retrieving data from the external world through the chemistry of our five senses and physical stimuli seems like a mental phenomena. The question of how the retrieval of such data is stored and maintained indefinitely in our subconscious and regurgitated to our conscious is not as complexed as it seems; although, there are exceptions to the rule, such as asperger and high functioning autism, in which some cases are associated with profound memory.

There’s a myriad of concepts you can implement to enhance your procedural memory and improve your sensory acuity. The former through the cross-platforming or cross-mapping between mutually exclusive domains; and the latter is a Neuro Linguistic Programming phrase which deals with the heightening of awareness in your surroundings. The irony is, the acquisition of one instantaneously ingrains the other—–I’ve categorized the underlying mechanisms of memory acquisition into four categories; pattern recognition, metaphoric correlation, information repetition and mnemonic induction.

Pattern Recognition: pattern recognition are usually attributed to apophenia and pareidolia; the former is conducive to the spontaneous perception and connections to meaningful elements of unrelated phenomena; example, associating numbers with the lottery or dissecting personal information in noise. The latter is an illusion or misperceptions involving the false interpretation of tangible or intangible, animate or inanimate things; example, seeing Jesus face in the clouds or an angel in smoke flames. Humans have a tendency to attribute meaning and significance in what’s deemed asymmetrical, arbitrary, coincidental or situational irony; however, pattern recognition precedes back to our primordial era of Homo sapiens, and our survival mechanism being contingent on pattern recognition. Nevertheless, human cognition is wired to perceive connections in things, and there’s “special cases” of such perception leading to delusions, psychosis and schizophrenia when left unchecked.

Metaphoric Correlation: is the cross-platforming between mutually exclusive domains; paralleling one concept with another that’s completely unrelated, but share a processing synonymity. Prime example is the mixing of colors red and blue; both mixtures produce the color purple, which inevitably is an induction of mutually exclusive colors. Using figurative language in literary devices as a perceptive mechanism to augment memory induction has innumerable benefits beyond the synthesis scope, and the ability to find commonalities between different forms of existence. The acquisition of multiple concepts simultaneously, and the underlying abstract principles of language definitions, rather than lexicons and the linear. The taxonomic relationships between semantically distant concepts are established through a metaphoric correlation; regardless of their asymmetrical imbalance; in the salient juxtaposition of mutually exclusive elements, dimensions of applicability becomes more pronounced. See my paper on The Power of Analogy A Peculiar Mnemonics.

Information Repetition: Information repetition is contingent on the memorization of information, it’s prevalent in script, monologues, poetry, rap, singing and comedy etc. Mnemonics, analogy and metaphors are not applicable when you’re processing the detailed elements of a script or the rigors of a comedic performance that’s contingent on timing and delivery. Information repetition induction also occurs inadvertently to the soothing sound of music; the lyrics become engrained in the longevity of monotonous listening.

Mnemonic Induction: mnemonics are used to remember large amount of information or facts; using rhymes, abbreviation, acronyms, phrases, assonance or alliteration. A prime example is the strings on a guitar; the strings are laid out parallel to each other on the fretboard, started at the high E, B, G, D, A and Low E; a mnemonic used to retain the strings order is, “Every Bread, Gets, Digested, After, Eating.” Other sorts of mnemonics are acronyms such as “SAD,” Sleep Affective Disorder, where a persons emotional state is induced due to weather conditions.

As a musical composer and arranger I’ve always had a deep seeded infatuation for the physics of sound; things like amplitude, frequency, velocity, wavelength, octaves, intervals, chromatic, diatonic and harmonic scales—and the overall acoustics of sound propagation as a physics entity. Having an intrinsic desire and curious mind to unravel a conundrum or demystify an enigma, or the overall engagement of satisfying ones thirst to know something supersedes it all—-of the above mentioned.

Here’s two original compositions and one arrangement, where i explore modulation, cadence, intonation and inflection in music; transposing, transcribing, arranging and composing in three mutually exclusive musical styles.. All three pieces were composed and arranged in nonstandard tunings, this lends itself beautifully to sus2 and sus4 open chords—(another subject). Enjoy!

Here’s an interesting paper I wrote on
Phonology of Modulation Cadence Inflection & Intonation,
If you’re into the intricacies of sound in literary devices in linguistics.
