Relative Sizes of Objects

When memorized, images unite into associations, into combinations of visual images. Depending on the memorization method used, images can be of different sizes within an association.

Three main sizes are distinguished: small, medium, and large.

Imagine a cat in your imagination. This is a big image made up of several parts: “ears,” “back,” and “tail.” Now, imagine images of “a cube,” “a ball,” and “a bolt.” Create the following connections in your imagination: “ears – a cube” (a cube in the cat’s ears), “a back – a ball” (a ball on the back of the cat), and “a tail – a bolt” (a bolt on the cat’s tail).

When you create connections between images in your imagination, you should imagine solely the connected images: “ear – cube,” “back – ball,” and “tail – bolt.”

First, look at the cat in general. The cat image is large in this association, but the “cube,” “ball,” and “bolt” images are medium-sized in relation to the cat’s image.

Now, find a small detail in the image of the cat, say, a claw. Picture this image as “large” by using the “Image enlargement” operation. Create a connection “a claw – a cake.” Both images should be big and take up all the volume of your imagination.

Imagine the cat once again. In this association, the cat is a large image; the “cube,” “ball,” and “bolt” images are medium-sized; and the ”cake” image is small in comparison with the cat image.

Note once again that when you join two images, the connected images must be large, regardless of their size relative to each other.

To imagine what should happen in your brain during image enlargement, imagine that the cat image is on the screen of your computer. To single out the ears from the integral image, you need to choose the necessary part with a frame and enlarge it. Now the ear occupies all the free space on the screen. The rest of the image is not to be seen on the screen. That is exactly what happens in your imagination when you single out some part of an image. Just like on a computer screen, the connected images must take up all the free space of your mind’s eye, your imagination; the rest of the images are left out.
