Zimbabwe My 36 memory experiments The Navajo memorise over insects to three levels of classification, along with all their characteristics. All non-literate cultures memorise a huge amount of information beyond the spiritual and historic — usually the only topics referred to when talking about oral tradition.
My interest is in the vast store of practical information: Navigation across vast areas without charts, complex genealogies, astronomy, timekeeping, geology, land management, resource locations and rights, animal husbandry, farming practices, laws, ethics … it goes on and on.
How on earth do they remember so much stuff? Their very survival depended on it. They use song, dance, stories, mythology and combine all the methods into an intricate knowledge system.

And they use a vast array of physical memory aids as described in my books The Memory Code and Knowledge and Power in Prehistoric Societies. In order to better understand the memory methods used by non-literate cultures, I have instigated 36 experiments using devices which mimic the topologies I have found in indigenous memory systems.
I am astounded how effective these are. It is also giving me insight into the different way my memory works when I use these methods.
They integrate, mish and mash together and feed each other. My thinking becomes more dependent on images and emotions and less on words. It is weird and wonderful and close to impossible to describe in writing.

They are valued for their distinctiveness from the Latin script of the dominant languages and for the ease with which literacy can be.
I am also trying to mimic the genres of knowledge valued by indigenous cultures, but translate them into my contemporary world. It is essential I store information which I value. After a few years of work now, the bank of experiments is getting huge and complicated.
They all used a range of technologies constantly. I am now doing that as well. I can never match knowledge systems based on hundreds, if not thousands, of years of refinement, but I can grasp the totally different ways of thinking and knowing these devices offer me.
That works well for large spaces like buildings, gardens and streetscapes. Memory systems give a way to lay down a firm foundation of knowledge on which to build many higher levels of learning.
The massive memory spaces used by indigenous and pre-literate cultures are the landscape, streetscapes, buildings and the skies. Uluru as a set of memory locations 1.Another creative alphabet by Vladimir Koncar.

Why Students Reverse Letters. Current research tells us that the root cause of dyslexia/RD lies in the way the brain processes sounds. There is no evidence to suggest that children with dyslexia/RD see letters and words backwards.
Backwards writing and letter reversals are very common in the early stages of writing.
