"if you find a conversational partner who’s willing to get a little weird, you can use the room you’re in to build a shared memory palace. when you discover an interesting train of thought, you “place” it somewhere in the room. pretty soon, you’re literally surrounded by the convo

the weird thing is you can come up with new connections or concepts by physically moving/dancing between the landmarks in your mini memory palace

you’re basically setting up an infrastructure that lets you see ideas in visual form before you know how to translate them into words"
