Sherlock’s Memory Palace

My lady and I saw an episode of Sherlock, the BBC version, recently, and while I don’t watch much TV, I was pleased to see the ways in which they showed Sherlock accessing his memory palace in order to find out about something he’d read about years and years and years before, but didn’t have a clear connection between past and present.  It was quite interesting, because it showed how word and image get conflated.

I swear, it’s practically criminal that we don’t teach kids to use their memories more effectively.
