Well, that is interesting. The book that I refer says that its author manages to memorize the hundreds of students that he cursorly met in the seminars and advises these methods to be used in the daily life. Also, Idriz Zogaj proposes these techqniques to fix the world education system at TED talk.

Wait, I do not how to reconcile the memorizing with forgetting. Might be we should not memorize them in the first place?

What is intellectual? Intellect is a combination of your biological giftedness plus cultural lessons. You say that the degradation is in their nature, they were born like this, which means that the factor in question is biological rather than cultural. Intelligence does exist alone, without biology and training as computer programs do not appear without programmers and computers.

memory athletes: you can remember only pictures, not abstract thoughts

@anon Yes. Your answer lacks the contrast with the visualization capacity. For me, the intuition is something like visualization. Intially, the picture of studied subject is blank. But, any subject, if it is not a mess, it has a structure. As you gain intuition, the picture starts appearing. You start seeing some contours of objects, their relations and ways to pass from this point to that point, similarly to orientation in 3d space with only exception that in abstract subject you have something like graph instead of 3d sweep. So, I wondering: what is the difference with visualization?

You could say what he meant to say, whether his words have meaningful interepretation rather than claiming that visualization of 3d has nothing to do with visualization of 3d.

Nothing makes sense. All words are useless because they do not mean what they mean. That is why Susskind came up with n dimensions and visualization. Only abstract thinking is reality.

Why students can develop the abstract thinking but not 1d sensory system? Why do I need 1d sensory system for visualizing 1d space? Which kind of sensory system is needed for abstract thinking?
