Rules for Creating Connections
Visual representations must be simple and precise. You should learn to see images as precisely as possible in the imagined space within a meter around you. Whether your eyes are open or closed at this point is not important. Those who learn to use GMS® mostly prefer to create connections between images with their eyes open and fixed on a monotone surface.
The produced images must be large enough, but must also be fit to enlarge (zoom in) or minimize (zoom out).
If you linked an image to some part of another image, you will not be able to link a third image to this part. In this case, the preceding image will be erased from the memory (See “Association Erasure Effect” for more details.).
Images should be connected in such a way so that they can be encircled with a continuous line. In other words, the images must have common points with each other.
If the images are hard to connect, you must try to make them fit together using mental operations like rotation, enlargement or minimization, modification or simplification. You can connect any images in your imagination.
All parts must be clearly viewable in an association you create. You cannot hide one image behind or inside another.
While creating a connection, images can constantly be in motion in your imagination. After the images have been connected, stop mental manipulations with them, and fix your attention on the picture you obtained.
The type of pictures you get (funny – sad, dumb – clever, kind – evil, etc.) does not have any impact on the memorization process. The brain only reacts to connections. The brain distinguishes only a general contour.
