Paul is daydreaming in biology2 class
on the first day of the new semester.
Teacher: Huh, hum...Paul? Are you with us?
Paul: Huh? Oh, sorry, Teacher.
Teacher: Were you daydreaming?
Paul: Yes, I was.
Teacher: Excuse me?
Paul: I'm trying to practice using a new method3
as a means to remember things.
Teacher: How can not paying attention help one to remember?
Paul: Actually, I was following everything you said, Teacher.
I was picturing4 what you were saying.
Teacher: Paul, we were discussing5
oxygen6. How do you visualize7
Paul: In my mind, I was the oxygen. I was traveling in through
my nose, into my lungs8, heart and throughout
all my body.
Teacher: Sounds like quite a ride!
Paul: Totally9. It really made
your lecture more interesting, and I won't forget the picture I
made in my mind.
Teacher: Class, Paul has discovered a short cut for your
studies. Instead of memorizing10 this
semester, I want you all to learn "visualization11".
