Connecting Two Images

Images are always connected in pairs. Any connected image must be seen in large size, in detail, in color, and in three dimensions, if possible. Even when connecting two images, one must observe a strict sequence of connections in order to be able to say which image of a given pair is the first and which is the second.

Let us agree that the second image of any pair will pierce (penetrate into) the first image of the pair.

Or the second image will be placed on top of the first one.

The second image of the pair must also be situated to the right of the first image.

The position of the second image of the pair relative to the first one depends on the images connected. Connect them the way that it is most comfortable for you. Rotate them in your imagination; examine them from different sides; make them fit together, to get the connection that you need and that is easy to use.

As mentioned, the type of created connection is of no importance to you. If you feel that familiar connections are easier to memorize – create familiar connections. If you think unfamiliar, weird connections are easier to memorize, create connections you have never seen before.

The principal is that connected images must touch each other, that they can be encircled with one continuous line. Your brain is interested in general contour.

Whatever the relative size of the connected images is, you must forget about everything when you create them, and concentrate your attention on ONLY TWO images you connect and imagine them in LARGE size.

The images can differ in size in real life but, when you connect them in your imagination, they must be of the same size. If in real life an ant is small, its image must be enlarged. A plane is big; consequently, its image should be minimized. When you connect these two images in your imagination, they must be of the same size. Such image connection method is called the “Chain” method in GMS®.
