My incredible chat with Dr Lynne Kelly, author of 'The Memory Code', covered many fascinating topics, but really only just scratched the surface of Lynne's knowledge of mnemonics, the study and development of systems for improving and assisting the memory.
In this episode, Lynn talks about portable memory devices such as the African lukasa - wooden tablets that are covered with multi-colored beads, shells and/or bits of metal, or incised or embossed with carved symbols. See what these intriguing memory boards look like and learn more about how they are used as memory aids on Lynne's website at: www.lynnekelly.com.au/2017/11/an-incredible-set-of-memory-boards/.

My work in town planning and environmental law gradually led me to wonder whether western society had lost a crucial connection with 'something'. In exploring what that 'something' might be, I looked to Indigenous knowledge and in doing so, became enthralled with the intriguing yet very complex concept of multi-dimensional songlines.
