Figurative codes for Two-Digit Numbers (00-99)

Every number from 01 to 99 is connected to a corresponding word according to a figurative code. Zero in numbers from 01 to 09 is not encoded into letters. These numbers are correspondingly remembered as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. The zero is added during anamnesis.

01 = 1 = N = Nose, but 10 = NM = eNeMa

02 = 2 = THZ = tHz = Hair, but 20 = TBZ-M = Tbz M = aTM

In other numbers from 10 to 99, both ciphers are encoded:

45 = WVK-FR = Wvk fR = WR = WeRewolf

99 = C-C = CaCao

Here are some rules for using figurative codes for two-digit numbers.

  • When memorizing phone numbers, only their second and the third numbers are memorized by two-digit figurative codes: 365-99-45.
  • Four-digit numbers are memorized by breaking them into two two-digit numbers: height of the Angel waterfall is 1054 (10 + 54) meters.
  • When memorizing precise dates with these codes, the day of a month is remembered: battle of Crecy happened on 26 August 1346.
  • When memorizing addresses, figurative codes help memorize a number of a house, a block, and an apartment: Ocean Street, 19, block 3, apartment 89.
  • A long array of numbers is memorized by breaking it into two-digit numbers: 34762387549864758358 = 34 - 76 - 23 - 87 - 54 - 98 - 64 - 75 - 83 - 58.
  • Two-digit number figurative codes, like any other figurative codes, must not be connected with each other. This leads to connection destruction (the association erasure effect).

For example, if you consecutively memorize images 54 - 43 - 54 - 87 - 32 - 54 - 65 - 43 - 54 - 87 - 64..., the sequence part written in red will be forgotten, you will remember the last connection with the image of 54: 54 - 87 64...

For the same reason, it is impossible to consecutively memorize numbers of a phone number. If any numbers repeat, the newly created connections will destruct the previous ones.

356 - 34 - 98

635 - 34 - 54

743 - 34 23

The numbers written in red will be reproduced incorrectly, because they will be overwritten by the last connection 34 23.

The association erasure effect (as well as others) is observed when trying to memorize a large amount of information and during the delayed anamnesis. This can occur, for instance, when you memorize a sequence of 50 two-digit numbers (within the time of 50 6 seconds = 300 seconds = 5 minutes), and when repeated perception is not allowed.
