Many of us wish we had a better memory enabling us to learn faster. This post discusses how perfect memory works.
What is Perfect Memory?
Our right brain’s mass memory capacity stores all we experience through our five senses including inspirations from other sources. Strong connections between our right and left brain functions enable access this massive storehouse then bring genius-like ideas, inventions and practical solutions into the world. This right/left interchange in the brain is the way we experience perfect memory.
Here’s an example: Remember The Minority Report with Tom Cruise? In the movie, three children with the gift of premonition (a “subconscious” right brain function), projected images of the future into a screen. Cruise, using his advanced left brain “conscious” abilities, was able to organize those images into a logical sequence of events. This right/left brain subconscious/conscious interchange led to the location and arrest of a future perpetrator in a crime.
Right brain learning was developed in Japan, where Dr. Makoto Shichida made popular what became known as “Right Brain Education”. On any given day in his 400+ Shichida Child Academies you’ll find dozens of children developing remarkable abilities like remembering up to 1,000 objects in sequential order, instantly solving complex math equations, and flipping through a 500 page book then scoring highly on a comprehension test.
Games and exercises that are targeted for right brain stimulation are often simple to play. They can quickly help increase a child’s creativity, rapid thought processes, concentration and memory, as well as help develop musical aptitude, intuition and more.
We feel the learning environment that best illustrates a positive atmosphere for instruction and study is a properly equipped Montessori classroom. Not only do they have correctly proportioned furniture, they use some of the best hands-on equipment and lessons for children of any school we’ve seen. This is a picture of a typical Montessori classroom.
Learning foreign languages are easy for young children. To them, it’s effortless. In fact, they can master many languages at once through sound-based accelerated learning methods. Here’s how.
Sound-based learning incorporates the subtleties of patterns, rhythm, frequencies, tone, pitch and accents. Young children, because their left brain functions are not as active as those in adults, are easily able to synthesize these subtleties through the right brain with no effort. So, if four languages are spoken in their environment, they will master all four without confusion.

Accelerated math skills are attainable even by children who don’t seem to have any abilities or interest in the subject. In this post I’ll discuss various ways math can be learned. I’ll also share the most effective rapid learning math programs available.
Those with perfect pitch have developed right/left brain connections that allow them to sing, play or identify any musical note from memory without a reference. Babies who receive perfect pitch stimulation training will, when older, often be able to quickly pick up and master singing or playing musical instruments.
Have you ever heard a melody playing in your head like a recording? Some have the ability to transfer a melody to almost any musical instrument with relative ease.
Most of us experience intuition from time to time. These are higher thought processes that come through right brain subconscious mind to our conscious left brain awareness. Using proper methods to stimulate and strengthen the connections between these functions makes cognitive learning much faster and easier. We can tap into higher knowledge, make amazing discoveries or even create inventions that transcend our personal experience and know-how.
Intuition is that still small voice of conscience tells us the right thing to do in a given situation. Some say it’s our soul. Others claim it’s our higher self or the voice of reason. Sadly, many don’t have this connection and therefore are prone to act through lower forms of thought known as the reptilian brain. With these, intuitive learning concepts don’t come naturally and they aren’t concerned or remorseful when doing wrong to others because they don’t have a conscience telling them right from wrong. You often see people like this involved in terrorist or gang activities.
Below are some of the most notable learning pioneers of our time. The depth of research on the subject of accelerated learning and right brain education is growing by leaps and bounds. The following individuals are recognized for their ground-breaking research and discoveries in this field. This is by no means a complete list but provides a snapshot of the accomplishments that are changing the face of education around the world.
