# how can a man momorized a 100 numbers in a random order????

Relevance

It isn't so bad as it sounds when u put it down on paper.

Look at it. 100 numbers is only 10 groups of 10. Not too bad.

seems hard to memorize, although possible.

but this too below, is a random selection. It just happened to be easy.

That was random, depending on the generation criteria for a random order.

But I know, it is amazing. Some men have attempted to memorize the sequence of pi. A Russian man memorized it by utilizing the buildings and internal building structures of the Kremlin and others have done it visually as well, such as using landmarks, visualizing a walk around town.

Memory is enhanced by use of visualization and reducing clutter by grouping. that's how these guys did it. Taking the first letter or using mneumonics really works and u can take 10 days to memorize 10 groups of random numbers. this is the slowest pace.. Of course, u can do this in one day.

This might annoy you, but from a mathematical point of view, we just need to show that there exists a set of 100 numbers, which after being presented to the man, the man can memorize them. That's not too hard, because if the man was presented with the set of integers from 1-100, then he should be able to memorize that with no problem, just like most 3rd graders can...

Generally by making up a narrative story involving the numbers. It is much easier to remember a story than it is a simple list of numbers. Often times the first letter of the words or the number of letters in the word represents the number. Then all you have to remember is a 100 word story.
