I want to provide some valuable nuggets of information from science. Warning: This page also contains some merely speculative thoughts about randomly chosen topics. ||| Auf diesem Blog finden sich eine Mischung von Auszügen aus primär naturwissenschaftlichen Texten und spekulative Gedanken (bzw. persönliche Kurznotizen) zu einer Vielzahl von Themen. Die Bezeichnung "Naturwissenschaftsblog" ist zwar gewagt, reicht aber bis in die Gründungszeit dieses Blogs zurück.

"You’ve heard the old saying about the three most important
things in selecting real estate: location, location, location.
Unfortunately, too many people assign a similar importance
to a basic memory technique: repetition, repetition,
repetition. They seem to think that if we just hammer away
hard enough and long enough with brute repetitive force,
we’ll chisel the information into our long-term memory."

"Mastering your memory means learning to minimize the drudgery of repetition. Going over and over material is an enormous waste of time, energy, and effort. In order for your memory to grow, you must give the information enough time to incubate. A farmer who plants seeds in the field does not immediately return to the spot. A wise farmer understands the development cycle of each crop and returns at the appointed time to cultivate the new growth. So it is with memory. Treat repetition as a spice, using just enough to enhance memory."
