Memory is a peculiar thing, if god works in mysterious ways our memory is his rule and pen.

All of our reality is constructed on the foundation of our memory, the interpretation of good and bad is done through our memory and the prism of our experience.

The proccess of creating a memory is done in three phases, accumulation, sorting and filing.

Accumulation is done through our eight senses at all times, we collect the information from our surroundings as smell, sound, taste, touch, sight, empathy, time and orientation, in order to pass an item or event to the sorting phase we need to have at least three senses touching it.

Sorting an item or event starts when three or more senses are focused on it, at that point it is labled through descriptive words, an apple can be red, sweet and have just the right texture, a fire in our house can be bright, hot and comforting or frightening in a given context. once the item is given its three primary lables it is sent into filing.

Filing starts with a name, if we already know what we just sorted the lables are added to the same item if a different lable exists already for the item it can be replaced, enhanced, reduced or added as a new item either creating a new group or just an item in an existing one (sweet apple and sour apple), if we dont have a specific name we add the item to a group of similar objects (fruits, fairytales) and unless we are distracted will try to collect as many trios of senses as possible for future reference.

To suppress a memory we shorten our sensor array, confuse the names and lables of our references so no coherent trio is built, a silent attacker in a dark enviroment is much harder to remember unless we took a peak at our watch right before the attack.

To enhance a memory we can actively connect more senses to the event, being aware of the time and place and how we feel about it will make sure there is at least one constructed trio of senses that will be sorted and filed.

In hypnosys we reduce and manipulate another person’s senses through chemical, enviromental and psychological tools, to deny hypnosys being attempted on us we need to force an active ongoing memory of events and objects around us, this will deny the hypnotist access to our senses and memories, once the manipulation starts it is much harder to fight, though not impossible.

To become a lucid dreamer we need to remember our dreams, so right before falling asleep think of three lables you want to remember, they can be a color, a sound and a feeling, write them down before you go to sleep, think on them at your last waking moment and as you wake write down where you noticed them in your dream, at that point you will find out you remember many details unrelated to them and may try to write those down as well.

When lucid dreams are there whenever you want them you have become a lucid dreamer, that is the time to start exploring your dreams, have fun.
