Do you have trouble remembering long lists or song lyrics or poems? Then you might be interested in Joshua Foer's book: Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything in which he writes about the role of memory in culture and the techniques mentalists use to enable their memory prowess as he describes his year long quest to improve his memory.
If you accept the natural over the supernatural, reality over mythology, and evidence over faith, then you're in the right place. Please join this group of like-minded folks to discuss these and other relevant ideas. We welcome anyone from Atheists to Agnostics, Free-Thinkers, Humanists and Skeptics. Anyone with a rational worldview is encouraged to join and attend our meetups.
