What is Association Base Singled out for?
Association base is a large image with parts that are connected to other, medium-sized, association images.
An image that is an association base is an image where the most significant parts of the memorized message are encoded. For example, when you memorize a phone number of the “Palm-tree” cinema, 301-90-83, you will certainly take the palm-tree image as the association base. Other images that represent the digits of the phone number will be elements in this association, medium-sized.
Figurative codes (fixed visual images that represent highly common elements, i.e. numbers, names, months’ names, weekdays, etc.) should never be used as an association base.
Every created association must always have an association base that complies with these main concepts.
Association is put together on an association base as one would similar to using a framework. Other association images are connected with images that are parts (sub images) of the association basis.
The connection creation technique, when singling out an association base, allows for the memorization of the same visual images several times. However, they are never mixed up and are remembered perfectly. For example, number 26 (a tape) can be present in tens of phone numbers and have connections with tens of different images. Any other method of image connection creation does not make possible the memorization of information with often-repeated elements.
We should note here that only the understanding of electric memory connection fixation principles allows for utilization of the right memorization technique for memorizing information with often-repeated elements (e.g. two-digit numbers are often encountered in European phone numbers).
A sequence of associations is remembered by their base. Only two variations are possible here: either association bases are connected with additional stimulating images or association bases are connected directly to each other.
