here you go:

 

Tesla used polyphasic sleeping and he had an eidetic memory(its an information from several articles and books, also he could see how his invention gonna work in his mind with great detail) so there may be something in it.

 

i had to look it up: https://en.wikipedia...olyphasic_sleep

 

 

The term polyphasic sleep is also used by an online community that experiments with alternative sleeping schedules to achieve more time awake each day. However, researchers such as Piotr Woźniak warn that such forms of sleep deprivation are not healthy.[3] While many claim that polyphasic sleep was widely used by some polymaths and prominent people such as Leonardo da Vinci, Napoleon, and Nikola Tesla, there are few reliable sources supporting that view.[4]

 

I do remember Kramer using that in one of the Seinfeld episodes, LOL.

Sorry to kill your hype GrandMaster, but photographic memory/ editid whatever it's called is not obtainable. You could improve your memory by injecting IGF-1, however it shortens your lifespan. Goood luck

Eidetic and photographic memory are two different things as we figured out in this topic. Photographic memory is fictional thing which hasn't any historical facts or studies behind it(maybe Elisabeth story with dots) and eidetic memory is confirmed to exist and we have several facts connected to it that make this kind of memory very plausible to exist(John von Neumann case, William Sidis, Ferdinand Marcos, Nikola Tesla, Stephen Wiltshire- although its savant case, Arturo Toscanini, Charles Nalder Baeyertz etc..). Also we can also talk about ways to achieve perfect memory with mnemonics or nootropics and not only visual but for example echoic(Glazunov, Rachmaninov, many great composers) and other types of memory.

I was referring to both, sorry for not being clear enough. Both photographic and eidetic memory cannot be achieved through supplementation. PM if you want evidence.

We are not only talking about getting eidetic memory through use of nootropics but also training with techinques(fairy) or mnemonics.

 

EDIT: How can you write things like that anyway? Have you tried every nootropic and procognitive substance that exist to say such things and be sure about it? I doubt you tried permille of it like most human beings so rethink that.

Anyawy. eversing memory loss =/= eidetic memory. I have also heard about that c16 PKR Inhibitor may give perfect memory but there is quiet about it know so i dont think that 15000 dollars per gram substance have worked for anyone in procognitive way.

It seems that if lost memories can be restored, then one's memory is perfect, no? So, why wouldn't reversing memory loss result in a Von Neumann-type memory?

He had eidetic memory but not in all fields: he memorized over 50 history books as a child and then at univeristy he destroyed professor with byzantine knowledge, memorized books like Tales of Two Cities and quoted em back verbatim, memorized d'Arc process texts but couldnt tell where he had glasses in house where he lived for if i remember good for 7 years etc. So it was possibly perfect "classical" memory and maybe echoic but not visual and only for things that he were interested in and was focused on them as far i can say. Even Stan Ulam wrote in book that John Von Neumann was echoic memory person.

 

What can you restore if your normal memory would make memorizing large amouts of informations impossible? Its not an eidetic memory in this case.

Why large amounts? Just remember those amounts of information that are conformable with one's current memory capacity. Once it's determined that the information has been "forgotten" then "restore" it. Although, it might be somewhat of a bother making the determination that memories have been forgotten and then having to continually restore them (which may be totally impractical).

We are trying here as you can see in first post crack secret of memorizing unbelievably large amounts of informations like whole pages of text or books at single glance(eidetic visual memory) or just by normal reading(classical perfect memory like JvN or Euler).

I'm positive this is possible, at least with a extensive stack of the most powerful nootropics like cerebrolysin perhaps even stone added, semaxetc, achieving this with a couple of the more weak nootropics is wishfull thinking.

i noticed that when i feel better and relaxed, my memory is worse. when i feel miserable, my memory is better.

my memory is shit overall and getting worse with aging. another thing i noticed, some of the recalled memories are distorted and untrue. if you discover a memory miracle, let me know.

When i feel great i also notice that my creativity and verbal fluency is at normal good level but memory is sometimes working better when i feel less mental clearity. Maybe its connected in some way to the fact that savants for example like Kim Peek had eidetic memory but were retarded in social skills and had low IQ. Small children often have eidetic memory because brain is not interpretating what eyes see and save all info like a snapshot without analysis.

 

Huperzine A, galantamine and phosphatidylserine may be useful to improve memory when brain and memory is getting worse with aging.

I have actually tried the military method and i dont have great progress with it. Could you please give me some recommendations on how to approach it. Some flashes are very clear and sometimes the letters are blurry. In two weeks this overall did not change. I even switched to a document with big letters (36) but there is still no progress measurable.

Has anybody else tried it?

I found the following has made meaningful improvements to my cognition, figured i'd post it here as a bump. 

 

1) Eating whole food plant based. Dairy, Meat, Refined sugar are honestly no good. 

           All aspects of mental and physical health improved for me

2) Correcting vitamin D status with 10,000 units/day, then stabilised with 5000 units/day.  https://www.ncbi.nlm...les/PMC5541280/

           Sleep improved. Helped me to relax. VitD has heaps of functions in your body and most people are very deficient. This builds up in your body and is low maintenance.

3) Taking a 20mg lutein xeanthine supplement every other day https://www.ncbi.nlm...les/PMC5707718/

           Some small noticeable improvement in memory. This builds up in your body and is low maintenance. 

4) Before going to bed, mixing 400mg of powdered phosphatidylserine with two teaspoons of algae based omega 3 

            Makes me confident, and cool as a cucumber the next day. Also improves cognition and sleep. This is expensive at $80/month.  

5) 30mg of Uridine salts sublingual in the morning.  

            Improves mental clarity and helps with motivation. If I take the suggested 250mg orally I feel tired. 

 

I plan to build upon this with some of the compounds identified earlier to see if I can make something magical happen.

I have added a few drops of turmeric oil CO2 extracted sublingual in the morning. I thought about adding this in response to a post I found where curcumin and berberine dramatically improved someones memory on reddit. The CO2 extract of turmeric is rich in ar-turmerone (about 30%) which has been found to increase NCS proliferation in rats and felt more interesting to trial than curcumin capsules i've tried in the past to little effect. The effect of the sublingual tumeric oil in concert with what i'm doing above results in focus and energy that lasts all day until I go to sleep, something in common with the reddit post. I have been ridiculously productive and I hope it is sustainable. I'll start playing around with HCL berberine soon. 

 

If you try dissolving the phosphatidylserine in Omega 3 trick I have tried a few products and found the best effect and taste with the following;

https://www.jarrow.com/product/556/PS

https://www.nutrasea...omega-3-plant-1

 

This is the tumeric oil product i'm using. Its the only one i've tried. 

https://www.auracaci...ract-0-5-fl-oz/

 

I prefer the nootropics depot powder uridine because it has no fillers unlike capsule powder. 

 

For the other components i'd use whatever is convenient.

Small children often have eidetic memory because brain is not interpretating what eyes see and save all info like a snapshot without analysis.

 

Huperzine A, galantamine and phosphatidylserine may be useful to improve memory when brain and memory is getting worse with aging.

My spontaneous thoughts when on the rare occasion having a low amount of alcohol or benzodiazepine in my system (especially benzodiazepine), is that "this is how normal people function". It seems to improve fluidity of speech and engagement in the world at low enough dosages, but the effects on memory to me are always super apparent and mildly negative, as well as making one rather dumb (but this is not outwardly apparent at these dosages I'm talking about). I have also noticed some substances (probably most notably d-amphetamine, methylphenidate and Cerebrolysin) make me at times feel a bit depressed or negative, but nevertheless make me perform well during those times best of my telling.

 

One sort of stereotype is that introverted people can spend more of their time thinking and analyzing, whereas extroverts are spending more time just regurgitating their ideas or seeing how they work in the real world. I guess perhaps some peculiar types of introverts (whatever that means) are like those "small children" you describe, they are more stuck in their heads and so they can more accurately remember things (but this might include moods and social interactions and their details as well). I want to say that there isn't necessarily a difference between being able to perfectly analyze and recall a social situation as a passive observer versus perfectly analyze and recall  10 pages of a chemistry book. Both are complicated things that can require very similar types of brain power. "Social skills" don't necessarily relate to understanding, but rather performance and sort of like muscle memory.  I think it quite possibly some people with diagnosed autism score low on IQ tests because they can't perform, rather than them not necessarily being able to comprehend. I'm not just talking anxiety I'm talking all kinds of things that are sort of like muscle memory or gut instincts that for most people, they just are able to get into that mode and that enables them to use their brainpower to a significant degree in a situation.

 

I know one person who alleged to be diagnosed with Autism and certified retarded in a certain US state back in the day, but years later he seems like a rather normal person after lots of tutoring to help him read and speak properly, altho I might wrongfully conflate his obscure interests and somewhat high level of verbal fluency with actually being able to get above 70 or whatever on an IQ test.

- - - -

 

I don't like to try a bunch of compounds anymore, but as far as really amazing recall of pages of books, the only thing I can say possibly gave me that ( and various flashbacks here and there while walking and thinking about stuff) is PRL-853. But there is to me one big problem with this compound and it's that it makes me really really tired after using it for a period and then stopping (even just 10mg every morning), at least that was the case the weeks I took it years ago. Methylphenidate or even d-amphetamine never gives me this tiredness, PRL-853 after a few weeks on about 10mg a day I felt absolutely exhausted in the morning after a good nights sleep, until the next dose came to work. Fasoracetam is interesting to me cause it coincided with me getting some great results at chemistry courses, but I think that's more of a general attention enhancer (unlike any I've tried, much more effective than prescription stimulants to me for studying).

 

I will try PRL 853 again at some point, probably.

Solid LOL. 

 

I have been off everything for about a week now and I can confirm there is no tolerance and that some of the effects are seemingly persistent. 

 

I did try berberine HCL 350mg but found myself nauseous, the same with hydergine. Both seemed to put me slightly backwards cognitively. I'll experiment some more.
